National Ice Cream Month (July, if you were wondering) can leave vegans feeling a little left out. Sure, we can snag a box of Tofutti or a pint of Rice Dream at the supermarket, but getting anyone to serve us a scoop or mix us up a shake? Dream on.
Luckily, Whole Foods Aventura has our backs. This Sunday, they'll serve vegan milkshakes for $5 from 1 to 3 p.m., in honor of the holiday. But even if you can't make it into the store, you can whip up your own at home with this recipe. Enjoy!

"We'll have a couple of different milkshakes people can buy for $5," said Janelle Cepero, the store's Marketing Team Leader. "They taste just like milkshakes. You can't even tell the difference!" The recipe was dreamed up by Melissa, the store's Healthy Eating Specialist.
Because what's summer without (cruelty-free) ice cream?
