Looking for a plant based treat? This Coconut Cashew Vegan Milkshake with Vegan Cashew Caramel is totally dairy free but still indulgent.

Plant based food is all the rage these days. We know that eating more plants and fewer animal products is good for our health. But does that mean that we need to give up all indulgences? Heck no! If you are trying to eat more plant based foods these days, you can still enjoy a treat. I’m working with Safeway to talk about all of the plant based products they have available,

O Organics® and Open Nature® brands have extensive lines of “better for you” plant-based products including non-dairy milk alternatives, nut butters, and frozen ingredients, meal solutions, and desserts. Open Nature® offers minimally processed, high quality products for everyone in the family, including plant-based, high protein, and gluten free options. O Organics® offers high-quality, 100% USDA-certified organic products in every aisle of the store. O Organics® products are always non-GMO and reflect uncompromising purity and quality.

I created this entirely vegan milkshake using Open Nature Dairy Free Coconut Ice Cream, O Organics Almond milk and Open Nature Cashew Butter. And I was super excited that I was able to create a vegan “caramel” out of the cashew butter, coconut oil and maple syrup! Who knew that was possible? I also used a dairy free whipped cream to top it off, so this was every bit as cold, sweet and creamy as a regular dairy shake.

I shopped at Safeway in my local area, but you can also find O Organics® and Open Nature® plant-based products at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, and Tom Thumb.

Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and Drive Up & Go™ for convenient ways to shop!
