Spring. Is. Coming. Do you feel it? That warm feeling on the back of your neck. The squint in your eye and the urge to take off your fuzzy sweater and heavy winter shoes – and frolic around in a tank top and light sandals. It’s the feeling of spring! And no matter where you live (sunny LA or breezy Boston) spring fever will catch your glance at some point soon and when it does you’ll be wishing you had a tall frosty glass of something to match your sweet-n-sunny mood.

11. And lastly, a dessert shake recipe!..
Peanut Butter Chocolate Bliss Shake
vegan, makes one tall shake
2 scoops vanilla soy or coconut ice cream
1 tbsp vegan chocolate fudge sauce
2 Tbsp peanut butter, chunky
1/4 cup soy milk or creamer (more decadent)
soy cream whipped topping
optional: diced banana mashed into the shake (or use a blender to puree a frozen banana)
Directions: Hand mash the ice cream, soy milk, fudge and 1 Tbsp of peanut butter. Mash until a malt-thickness forms. Then top with another scoop of peanut butter, soy whipped cream and some extra fudge sauce if desired. Serve with a tall spoon.
