Freakshakes are going vegan
Vegan can finally get their freakshake on.
Metro reports that though a launch with Yelp, The Canvas Cafe in Shoreditch has announced the addition of vegan freakshakes to their menu. The towering mason jar desserts will be completely dairy free and gluten free, meaning many coveting the food trend can finally partake.
For those unfamiliar with the freakshake obsession that’s currently sweeping social media platforms, a quick browse through the nearly 12,000 instagram posts about them will get your caught up. Basically, it’s a milkshake stuffed, topped, and absolutely overflowing with sauces and treats that are normally relegated to sundaes over shakes. You can’t just sip these guys lovingly through two straws with your sweetheart, they require a lot of eager ambition to conquer.
So while the towering treats have been dominated by non-vegan ice creams and additions, The Canvas Cafe is making our animal-free gluttony a dream come true. There’s an avocado and raw chocolate cake freakshake on their menu, as well as a raspberry, beetroot, and coconut one. Their milkshakes are coconut and soy milk based, and there’s even an appearance by everyone’s beloved aquafaba in the meringue that adorns them.
Homemade vegan cake (made from a date and nut base), whipped coconut cream, and vegan nutella round these sugar comas out, and make sure your freakshake is just as Instagrammable as it’s non-vegan counterparts. While they sound healthy, and might rival a traditional freakshake in nutritional stats, they’re still going to be a loose-pants-only kind of indulgence.
These treats will be available as of May 31st. For those who can’t wait, YouTube has a couple vegan recipes for homemade ones kicking around.
