Completely dairy-free and vegan.

Vegan Peanut Butter + Pecan Milkshake

This Peanut Butter + Pecan Milkshake is ridiculously good, Ya’ll!

I haven’t consumed that many milkshakes in my lifetime (I’m more of a smoothie lover!), BUT this milkshake is a game-changer for me. I think I just might consume a lot more milkshakes after this one. Haha.

Funny thing is, I’ve always thought that milkshakes weren’t the thing that brought REAL satisfaction. Haha. But I stand corrected.

The best thing about this recipe (especially for me) is that it is completely dairy-free and vegan. Double YES!

Vegan Peanut Butter + Pecan MilkshakeNow that I make my own milkshakes, I am a believer!

Plus, I love being able to choose my personal favorite ice creams (my go to’s– TalentiHaagen Dazs, and So Delicious Dairy-Free) to include in my milkshake, depending on the dietary type.

Secondly, I enjoy making my own milkshakes because I am able to fully customize the rest of the ingredients since most of my recipes are catered to being dairy-free or vegan.

If you’ve been an avid follower of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you’ll know that this isn’t my first milkshake recipe (although it’s been a while) and it probably won’t be my last. Haha.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED?

To make this milkshake, all you’ll need is a dairy-free vanilla ice cream (as your base), peanut butter (vegan-approved of course!), your favorite plant-based milk, pecans or pecan butter (Yes, it’s a thing), and an additional flavor of dairy-free ice cream, if desired.

Now, let’s dig into this tall glass of goodness, shall we?

Add the dairy-free ice cream, your favorite non-dairy milk (I used So Delicious as well), pecans or pecan butter, and peanut butter to a blender and blend on medium-high speed, until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.

Once milkshake consistency is met, pour milkshake into tall glasses, and top each milkshake with CocoWhip! (also from So Delicious) or homemade (See Notes!), drizzle a bit of pecan butter around the sides of the glass and top of milkshake, and end it topped with chopped pecans, if desired.

Add a straw and sip away and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

STORAGE: Best if consumed right away. If not, ensure that milkshake is stored in an air-tight container or mason jar and kept in the freezer. To thaw out, remove milkshake from freezer and place in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes for a creamy consistency.
DAIRY-FREE ICE CREAM: You can use So Delicious’ Cashew Milk version or their Almond Vanilla or Soy Milk version. 
PLANT-BASED MILK: I love using Almond milk, however, you can use your own personal favorite—Coconut, Oat, Soy, etc.
COCO-WHIP!: You can purchase So Delicious’ Coco-Whip topping or make it homemade. Great homemade recipe by leelalicious.
PECAN BUTTER: You can purchase various flavors of pecan butter via Purely Pecan's website. For this recipe, I used the Nuttin' But Pecan flavor.

  1. I agree that it seems like an odd combination. However, I do like pecans and I do love peanut butter. This recipe is worth a try, thank you for sharing and sure does look pretty.

    • Thanks so much April! Trust me, it’s worth the try! I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing it tastes together! I hope that you enjoy!

    • Yes, I use almond butter as well as an alternative sometimes and I believe that it tastes just as great, so I would guess that cashew butter works perfectly too! I hope you enjoy!

  2. Peanut butter and pecan – that’s an odd combination for a milk shake.

    However, I can’t wait to try it out to explore the taste it brings.

    It could become a brunch-meal substitute I would love to try.
