Cheryl starts craving a peppermint chocolate chip shake during this minty, candy cane season. She’s not vegan, and she loves this shake. If Cheryl likes it then I think you, and even your non-vegan family members will enjoy it too. Best of all, it requires no ice cream, just things you already have on hand. You do have candy canes, right? If not, peppermint extract or a handful of mint will work just fine.
Disclosure: TruJoy sent me some candy canes to try and Nu-Naturals gave me a bottle of their mint chocolate stevia syrup to try for free. Regardless, I would have made this shake no matter what since I make it every year. What I really like about Tru Joy Sweets’ candy canes is that they are vegan, organic and uses natural plant-based colors.
An easy sugar-free variation is to add about 1 to 2 tablespoons NuNaturals Nustevia Cocoa Mint Syrup in place of the chocolate chips and the mint extract.
It’s also great in hot cocoa or to top your vegan ice cream.
