Purple Cow Milkshake Recipe

June 4th, 2018

If your milkshake memories involve generous scoops of ice cream and loads of dairy milk, times have changed! Our modern spin blends up non-dairy ice cream with almond milk and banana, plus fresh grapes to add a gorgeous purple hue. For a little extra nutrition, we add a scoop of protein powder, too.

Purple Cow Milkshake

Yield: 2 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


For the purple syrup:
1 ½ cup of dark purple grapes
½ cup water
1 tablespoon honey

For the milkshake:
1 banana
2 cups non-dairy ice cream
½ cup almond milk
3 tablespoons purple syrup
1 scoop Nutiva Organic Vanilla Hemp Protein Powder

2 scoops non-dairy ice cream, for topping


Make the syrup:
Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil; simmer 15 minutes. (Be sure to keep an eye on it so the liquid doesn’t evaporate). Let cool, then strain through a sieve, pressing grapes with the back of a spoon to extract extra juice.

Make the milkshake:
Add banana, ice cream, almond milk, 3 tablespoons purple syrup, and protein powder to a blender; blend until smooth. Divide between two glasses and top each milkshake with a scoop of ice cream before serving.
