Dairy Free Roasted Strawberry Shake

This vegan dairy free roasted strawberry shake is the perfect addition to your summer dessert. So sweet and fresh you won’t even miss the dairy.

Today I have two fantastic things for you to feast your eyes upon. First we will be talking about this delicious dairy free roasted strawberry shake. It was so good I didn’t even share it with my husband. Sorry babe!

Now, about this shake. First I roasted the strawberries with a little balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Then I combined it with some So Delicious coconut milk “ice cream” and gave it a whirl in my Vitamix. To thin it out I just used some coconut milk I had sitting in the fridge. Oh. My. Word. I think strawberries are back to being my favorite fruit. Scratch that. Roasted strawberries are my new favorite fruit. Seriously. Can we just start roasting all fruit? It’s really that amazing.

{So Delicious does not know who I am and I was not paid to mention their product. I just really like it!}

I snapped a few pictures and immediately started downing this shake.  I was like a fat kid with cake – I was not going to be stopped. {Did anyone else just think of that chubby kid from the movie Matilda eating that whole chocolate cake?}

Can I just say that I’m lucky the pictures turned out because I totally finished it before I even checked. Bad food blogger!


Dairy Free Roasted Strawberry Shake

Yield: 1 shake

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes if you need to prepare berries, 5 minutes if berries are prepared


For roasted strawberries:
2 pints strawberries, tops removed and cut in half or quartered if large
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

For shake:
1/3 cup roasted strawberries
1/2 cup dairy free coconut milk frozen dessert (I used coconut flavor)
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Coconut milk beverage, as much as needed


For roasted strawberries:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Add berries, sugar and balsamic vinegar to a 8x8 glass dish. Stir to combine.

Roast for about 10-15 minutes until soft but not falling apart. Let cool.

If not using right away keep in a air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week...if they last that long.

For shake:

In a blender add berries, dairy free coconut milk frozen dessert and vanilla paste. Turn blender on high and add extra coconut milk beverage if needed. If you find the mixture to be too thin simply add more coconut milk frozen dessert. If it's too thick simply thin out with more coconut milk.

    When we lived in Minnesota, my next door neighbor had rhubarb growing on the side of his house. He hated it…considered it a weed. So he gave me free rein to pick some any time I liked. Needless to say, I made strawberry-rhubarb pie all the time. Love this! And 2 days? Pffft. I probably would have polished it off in 1 😉

    My grandmother always loved rhubarb but I’ve never been fond of it. Adding it with strawberries and made into coffee cake and I’m in, wow!

    This lasted two days? You have self control, pretty sure I can see myself sneaking back at this all day long if it was in my house.

    Me, me! I LOVE raw rhubarb. It reminds me of being a little kid and playing outdoors. It’s just a bummer that I can’t find it just growing in the yard like I used to. I adore the idea of your coffee cake. It’s such a perfect combination.
