Make Vegan Milkshakes for National Ice Cream Month

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!
