Why not celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a totally delicious way? Becky from Glue and Glitter has the recipe for you! Oh my, that didn’t mean to come out so cheesy. Ah well. Should I say so Daiya-ey? Ha! Becky has contributed before with her Almost Raw Vegan Truffles and Orange Ginger Dream Green Smoothie.
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:
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.
