Remember that coconut ice cream we made?

Yeah, you’re gonna need that. It’s coffee chocolate milkshake time (as promised).

Brewing coffee for our 3-ingredient Vegan Mocha Shake recipe

This mocha milkshake is inspired by one of my favorite childhood desserts – Arby’s Jamocha milkshake.

I know – shame, shame. But I was a bit of a junk food addict growing up – true story.

Cocoa powder, vegan ice cream, and coffee for making a delicious vegan milkshake

If you’ve never had a Jamocha shake, imagine vanilla ice cream blended with chocolate syrup and coffee. My version is a bit healthier than the original with no added sugar, thanks to cocoa powder, plus it’s vegan-friendly.

It also requires just 5 minutes and 3 basic ingredients once you’ve made (or bought) your coconut ice cream.

This shake is beyond dreamy. It’s:

& Perfectly sweet

This makes the perfect dessert when you’re wanting something creamy and cold or when a serious coffee craving strikes (i.e. every minute of the day).

    I can’t have dairy but my dairy-loving boyfriend had been craving a milkshake the other night and mocha milkshakes just happen to be his favorite, so I decided to give this a whirl. He said it was phenomenal even for someone who could have dairy. After that, I just had to try it for myself. However, I don’t like coffee or chocolate so I made mine using 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk for the liquid and added two tablespoons of peanut butter for the flavoring. WOW – it was so insanely good. I hadn’t had a milkshake in two years and I started crying. Thanks for sharing!

    The total fat content is 34g. That is not healthy. please I don’t want to hear how coconut is healthy. It is saturated. The bad fat.

    Yes yes yes! Since it has coffee, we can consider this our morning cup o’ joe, right?! Can’t wait to try it!
