Happy (almost) Cinco de Mayo!

I made these Mexican hot chocolate milkshakes for my friend Jeanee‘s birthday, and they’d be perfect for celebrating the fifth of May this weekend! Check out how happy this shake made her on her special day:

Jeanee Cinco de Mayo

Mexican chocolate is more than just spicy. It’s got a lovely blend of nuttiness, vanilla, and cocoa that makes it really special. It’s also kind of hard to find, though, and I’ve never seen vegan Mexican chocolate. Luckily, with something like a milkshake you can create your own blend of these flavors to get the depth of Mexican chocolate without having to actually track down the real deal.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Milkshake

Yield: 1 shake


  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream (I used the vanilla soy ice cream from Trader Joe’s)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • pinch of cayenne pepper


  • Blend it! Drink it! You’re welcome!

    To really give it that Mexican flavor, you should use the Chocolate Abuelita. That one is the best! 🙂
