Healthy and milkshake belong in the same sentence when you’re talking about this recipe.

Don’t let that stop you from trying this lusciously smooth treat. Instead, get out your blender and whip up a healthy treat. For those of you who are dairy-free, rejoice! This milkshake doesn’t use a drop of milk.
