Milkshakes, smoothies, juices and soups are pretty much the 4 core foods of wisdom teeth extraction recovery. It’s actually pretty easy to survive off of as a vegan since there is such an abundance of dairy free options these days. My favorite treat out of the bunch has been mint milkshakes! It’s so refreshing and soothing, I went through 2 pints of this ice cream in the past 2 weeks!
I love Coconut Bliss ice cream because they have such creative flavors and are not only vegan, but also organic! It’s made from coconut milk which gives it a rich, decadent taste that won’t leave you missing the dairy Besides the mint galactica flavor, my other fave is the chocolate peanut butter! It’s so good for when you need something extra indulgent!
I spruced this milkshake up with some fresh mint which really perks up the flavors! I also had to add a chocolate drizzle because you can never have too much chocolate! Serve this treat up for warm summer afternoons or as a late-night treat! You can’t go wrong with an old fashioned milkshake!
