Paleo Almond Joy Milkshake (V, DF, Paleo): a deliciously decadent recipe for thick, creamy milkshakes bursting with coconut, chocolate and almonds! Paleo, Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free.
Because one Almond Joy recipe is never enough. And apparently neither are 5 (??). Wow… that many?? On some levels, I think that’s a lot… on others it seems like there should be more. But anyway, truth time: are you a fan of Almond Joy or no?
With us being in the thick of the summer, I thought, what the heck, why not drop all the Almond Joy treats I can possibly think up? So this might actually be the last one of the summer because I don’t want to scare you away or anything… we’ll save that for September when I will probably test the limits again by sharing another AJ recipe. ????
Meanwhile, today’s recipe: Paleo Almond Joy Milkshake is slurpable, sippable, edible and so many ‘ibles that I can’t even count. Btw, when did counting become such a theme of today’s post anyway?
About a month ago, I mentioned that BB readers seem to really enjoy milkshakes! Be it strawberry coconut milkshakes, mango milkshakes, (pretty-much a milkshake, but called a smoothie for some reason) peanut butter ice cream smoothie and more… but what if I called up one of BB readers’ (yep, that’s totally you) most beloved flavor combos: Almond Joy?
For those of you who can’t get enough, allow me to present to you, my Paleo Almond Joy Milkshake. It’s thick, creamy, frosty, and seriously packed with so much yummy coconut, almond and chocolate goodness.
I made a few different versions ‘til I got this recipe to that perfect spot between too much add-ins and not enough.
Et voila: the Milkshake of the Summer!
Can we just announce that and make a thing? Like this is the Song of the Summer, but you can eat it? So. Much. Better. It might not be the last milkshake of the summer (oooh, intrigue), but it’s definitely one of my faves. In fact, I’ve definitely been eyeing this Minty Cookie Shake from My Gluten-Free Miami! Just be sure to use dairy-free versions of each ingredient to keep it vegan. 😉

- 3 medium bananas, sliced and frozen
- ⅓ cup coconut cream*
- 1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ cup paleo-friendly vanilla ice cream**
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut, shreds or flakes
- 3 tablespoons unsalted almonds, chopped or sliced
- 2 tablespoons mini vegan chocolate chips
- Dairy-free whip, chocolate sauce, almonds, coconut
- Add bananas to a blender or food processor. Blend until crumbly. Add coconut cream, maple syrup and vanilla, blending until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
- Add ice cream, coconut, almonds and chocolate chips, blending until well incorporated.
- Pour into cups. Optionally, top with coconut whip, chocolate sauce and your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
- *You can use canned coconut cream, or you do the following: Allow a can of full-fat coconut milk to settle for 1-3 days—set it in a stable, cool environment. Open the can and scoop the firm, creamy white part off the top—this is the coconut cream.
- **If you can't find paleo ice cream, you can use ¾ to 1 cup of my paleo Almond Joy Ice Cream, and leave out the coconut flakes, almonds and mini chocolate chips from this recipe.
