Easy Vegan Holiday Season: Day 10

By Megan Stulberg

I may not miss drinking regular milk, but I do miss milkshakes. I used to do this disgusting thing where I’d dip onion rings into a chocolate milkshake from Harvey’s. Whatever, it was delicious.

Follow this recipe, whip up a milkshake for your vegan beau and he/she will be begging to kiss you under the mistletoe. Guaranteed.

Chocolate Peppermint Milkshake (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan) 

Ingredients:

  • 3 scoops dark chocolate Coconut Bliss ice cream
  • 1 cup unsweetened light original almond milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract, agave syrup or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 tbsp peppermint extract
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 20 pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup ice, crushed

Directions:

1) Combine ice, ice cream, almond milk, coconut milk, and vanilla extract (or sweetener) in a blender for 30 seconds until smooth and frothy.

2) Carefully add peppermint extract. Taste after every drop to ensure that you don’t add too much, or else your milkshake might be too bitter. 1 tbsp should suffice.

3) Pour milkshake into glasses or mugs. Sprinkle the coconut and pomegranate seeds on top. Enjoy!

Serves 2.

Life Tip: You should listen to this while making your drink. Obviously.

Easy Vegan Holiday Season: Day 2

The idea of eggnog has always repulsed me. As a vegan, I never had an overwhelming desire to partake in this particular Christmas tradition. Blegh, eggs! It had never crossed my mind that there could be an alternative that I might actually enjoy!

And that’s where vegan eggnog comes in.

Let’s face it, Toronto is filled with coffee shops. Choosing which caffeine oasis is for you is a lot harder than it should be. There are just so many options! As an aspiring coffee shop entrepreneurI often find myself wondering how some of these tiny, almost unnoticeable cafes can thrive the way they do, and how great of a struggle it is for those that do not.

That’s where the Indie Coffee Passport comes in. Making things a little easier…

“ICP ❤ is a new twist on a cool concept. It is [the] Indie Coffee Passport for coffee shops younger than 3 years. Since 2010, The Passport has introduced you to many wonderful independent coffee shops – new and old – around the city. The idea was that once you discovered places you loved, you’d return to them even without your Passport. With ICP<3, we’re introducing you to some of Toronto’s newest and best independent coffee shops. We hope you’ll enjoy discovering the new places while returning to those you already love.”

Once you get your Passport, you’re entitled to one free drink from a designated menu at each cafe. Sound like a dream? It gets better. It’s only $22 for 22 drinks. You can purchase your very own Passport at any of the cafes included on the Passport, listed below:

I’m so excited to start using mine! Keep following Vegan Girlfriend for coffee-related updates as I hit each of the 22 cafes. Challenge accepted.
