    Your lunch looks so good! And I can’t remember the last time I had a milkshake… probably in college at Chick Fil A! I loved their strawberry milkshake, it had pieces of strawberries in it! So good!

    Just plain vanilla for me. But I think I would love a peanut butter one. Banana is pretty darn good too!

    YUM! That looks incredible!

    As far as milkshakes go I don’t know that I could choose a favorite! Peanut butter, mint chip, cookie dough…SO many good choices!

    Is the cake mix dairy-free? There are not many conventional store-bought mixes with no dairy. As far as I know, only a few of the Duncan Hines boxed mixes are dairy-free.

      I used Hodgson Mill’s Yellow Cake Mix. Granted, I picked my cake mixes up at Whole Foods, but all the ones I saw were Dairy Free. You make a good point.

    Yum! I love cake batter everything πŸ™‚ There’s an ice cream place in Chicago called iCream that makes ice cream in front of you using liquid nitrogen. It’s pretty cool and they have an amazing cake batter flavor! They’ll also turn your ice cream pretty colors like pink or yellow πŸ˜‰

    Cake mix has dairy in it, unless you specifically bought a vegan mix.

      I used Hodgson Mill’s Yellow Cake Mix. Most of the cake mixes I saw at Whole Foods were dairy free, but (you’re right) I didn’t check any of the conventional cake mixes at the regular grocery store.

        Awesome! I would make a special note on the recipe saying to check cake mixes for powdered dairy because most conventional mixes have it.

    Oh boy, does that milkshake look amazing. I love chocolate malts, but I stopped ordering them because I could drink them in about a minute! I slow down a bit more with a cone or bowl. But I wouldn’t mind experimenting with this recipe….:)

    If you really wanted to develop a recipe around almond milk, you could just have easily skipped the dairy free ice cream and subbed almond milk and thrown it all in an ice cream maker.

      Then that would be dairy free ice cream not a milkshake which is what Meghann was trying to create.

        Not really. Anytime you stick something in an ice cream maker, it comes out pretty loose and only hardens once you get it out of the maker and freeze it. If you put the mixture in there for even less time, it would be the consistency of a milkshake.

    I am a big fan of almond milk, but I don’t think I’ve ever made a shake with it–this looks fantastic!

    My favorite shakes are vanilla from about anywhere or peanut butter from the local ice cream place where I live πŸ™‚

    Too bad a lot of people don’t own an ice cream maker, lindsay…

    • Lindsay

      And most people own immersion blenders? My only point was that the recipe’s not really focused on almond milk if you have to go out and get dairy free ice cream too.

      • Meghann
        April 28, 2012

        You can use a regular blender with this too. πŸ™‚ I do not personally own an ice cream maker and I’m not a big fan of them (it’s a very time consuming task to make your own ice cream and most people don’t have that time). I was just looking for a quick, easy recipe that could be created with items already easily found in your pantry/freezer/fridge. Nothing out of the ordinary. πŸ™‚

      • Lindsay
        April 28, 2012

        True about the blender. I guess my point was also: when am I going to have dairy-free ice cream in my fridge? Much more likely to already have almond milk in the fridge. Also, for what it’s worth in case you’ve never used an ice cream maker, it takes about 20 minutes to make ice cream. The hardest part is actually assembling the ingredients. And if you’re looking for a looser consistency, it would take about half that time. It really couldn’t be easier (or cheaper). Of course, that’s not faster than using a blender, unless you take into account the time it takes to go to the store to buy the dairy-free ice cream.

    That looks amazing! During The Christmas season is the only time I can get my favorite shake…mint shake from Chick-fil-a. Just another reason to love the season…like how I did that there?

    I love almond milk!

    I’m not a huge fan of cake batter though – more of a cookie dough girl. πŸ™‚ I worked at Cold Stone Creamery in college and everyone loved the cake batter flavor and the Birthday Cake Remix creation. I always got the Apple Pie A la Mode with Sinless Sweetcream. πŸ™‚
