It’s finally summer… or is it? I don’t know about the rest of the world, but here in Scotland it feels like we barely had a spring, and now summer is around the corner (at least that’s what my calender tells me) but the sun is nowhere to be seen… Help, I’m vitamin D deprived!
It doesn’t stop me from enjoying summer foods, though. Continuing my happy partnership with Choc Shot, I received another bottle of their Coconut Choc Shot in the post and immediately thought of making this Coconut Chocolate Stracciatella Shake. It’s a great way of jazzing up your glass and your drink, and just making the day a bit more fun.
What’s that unpronounceable word I just used there? Stracciatella is an Italian word, and is the name of vanilla ice cream in which chocolate has been swirled to create a marble type of effect. When I was little, it was everyone’s favourite type of ice cream at school.
You could apply the same idea to other recipes too – coconut stracciatella ice cream, or swirling Choc Shot through nice cream or a smoothie bowl. Versality is one of the greatest benefits of Choc Shot, aside from the main one, which is that it tastes so freaking good.
I’m excited to say that this recipe was featured in this month’s The Vegan Kind subscription box – yes, another one! In case you didn’t know, I’m a huge fan of this Glasgow-based company that is striving to make veganism easy and accessible to all by introducing them each month to a box full of vegan products, from small local producers to bigger brands. If you haven’t checked them out yet, do it now!
And in case you’re a German speaker and are keen on making vegan ice creams this summer (whenever the weather does eventually decide to warm up!), you can now get my vegan ice cream ebook on Amazon.de!
