I think cool, frosty, shake-like, ice cream-y, dessert treats always sound better with the word ripple in the title. You agree? Fudge ripple. Caramel ripple. Vanilla cinnamon ripple. Pecan caramel ripple. Can someone make all these (vegan) shakes for me please because they just sound so tasty! Ill blame the ripple part. And this Almond Butter Ripple Crunch Shake is no exception. Light and crunchy sliced almonds mingle with sweet banana, coconut and cinnamon flavors. And a secret ingredient worth trying!..
The secret ingredient? Coconut milk ice cubes! Im obsessed with these things. I freeze plain old (full fat or light) coconut milk into ice cube trays and blend a few cubes into my shakes and smoothies. Ice cream effect done! Dairy free and vegan!
