Simply Strawberries and Cream Milkshake with fresh strawberries and daisys~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

This “vegan breakfast milkshake” will help you jumpstart your day. Filled with creamy goodness, it feels indulgent and comes along with a whole lot of nutrition. Based on a creamy almond/coconut milk, which creates a perfect foundation for frosty strawberries and chia seeds. This truly feels like an indulgent treat first thing in the morning.

Window of Opportunity

There’s a perfect window every summer where the local strawberries are finally ripe. And when that season is upon us, I take full of advantage of it. I eat them as is, fold into cheesecakes, make fresh jams, and put them in drinks such as this one.

If for some reason you stumble upon this recipe when strawberries are not in season, you can use organic frozen ones.

This drink is amazing without the chia seeds, but I just love the texture and the health benefits that chia provides. This is almost a drink that is eaten like a meal.

You don’t need a spoon, but I recommend a fat straw. And as always when enjoying smoothies, green drinks, and milkshakes, it is best to always chew them with each sip (slurp?). This gets the digestive juices started, preparing a gateway so you can fully absorb all its goodness and glory. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Blessings, amie sue

  3. Rinse the blender and add the milk, coconut meat, honey, vanilla, and chia seeds.  Blend for 30 seconds.  Pour into a glass.
