Lactofree Shakes #SayYestoSummer

The next in my #SayYestoSummer challenges with Lactofree was to create some summer shakes using Lactofree products. There is a shake for every taste, whether you like it full of berries or maybe even banana and peanut butter.

For my first shake I was inspired by one of my favourite cakes, the carrot cake. Carrot cake is full of so many flavours so why not bring these flavours into a milkshake - so simple yet so tasty.

I used a ready made slice of carrot cake but you might want to make your own to ensure that it's lactose free. It was topped with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting which makes it really indulgent and not for those counting their calories.

1 slice of carrot cake - approx 100g
200ml Lactofree milk
handful of ice cubes
75g Lactofree soft cheese
75ml Lactofree cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
walnuts (optional)
  • Place the carrot cake, milk and ice cubes in a blender & blend until smooth
  • Whisk the soft cheese with the cream and cinnamon until it forms soft peaks
  • Pour the carrot make milk into a glass and top with the cream cheese frosting
  • Top with crumbled carrot cake and walnuts

The second shake was a little more on the healthy side, with less indulgence and more fruit. This one combines the summer fruits of strawberry and rhubarb along with vanilla.
