Who else is excited about the Riverdale Season 2 premiere tomorrow?! And what better way to celebrate than by making milkshakes inspired by Pop’s Chock ‘Lit Shoppe! These milkshakes are quick and easy to make (and vegan friendly of course), and oh so delicious!
Feel free to adjust the ice cream to milk ratio to your liking. I prefer thick shakes, so as they melt, they’re the perfect consistency, but if you prefer thinner shakes, add more plant milk. The flavor and sweetness of vegan ice cream also varies by brand, so you may want to use more or less chocolate syrup, vanilla, or sugar as needed.
These make enough to fill up the old fashioned 13oz soda glasses I used. Since I couldn’t find vegan whipped cream in a can, I used a cake decorator (with no tip) to add the vegan whip on top. (I thawed it first by microwaving it for 20 seconds.) *Update: I’ve found vegan whipped cream in a can at Whole Foods!*
Chocolate ice cream isn’t usually my favorite flavor, but the double chocolate shake was actually my favorite of the three…so either my tastes are changing, or it’s just that delicious!
I had so much fun recreating the misty, dark feel of Riverdale for these photos and love how they came out. What do you think?
