♡ Quick & Lazy Summer Vegan Milkshake ♡

Image
I swear I've been living off of smoothies this summer because I am lazy and way too overheated to actually cook a meal.
Growing up, I loved a good milkshake, but ever since I went vegan, I thought it would be difficult to try and come up with a recipe of my own that made the cut. 
I don't know why it took me so long, but this summer became the summer for vegan milkshakes!
If you know about banana nice cream, then you know the creamy power of a frozen banana. This shake only has 5 ingredients, so its quick and easy :)
Vegan Strawberry Banana Milkshake 
Ingredients:
1 cup frozen strawberries 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 1 ripe frozen banana 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk) 1 tsp chia seeds to garnish

The best summer milkshake with minimal effort!!

My Favorite Vegan Winter Drink

Even though California weather can be very unpredictable, it has been rather cold the past few weeks!
As the temperature drops, my daily tea intake increases substantially (even though I already drink an unhealthy amount on normal days). 
Some of my favorite teas are chai and earl grey, with a touch of cream. Lately, I have been warming and frothing my cream which is a total game changer! This Sur La Table frother is similar to mine, and not too expensive either :) 
With all that said, my go-to drink this winter has been a cacao chai tea latte!
