vegan milkshakes

This is my new thing. I'm not even vegan, really. I just love 'em. I decided that I'm going to spend the rest of this weekend trying to find vegan milkshakes in the Bay Area. We've been to Saturn, (which is the standard by which I wish to judge all others and Rico's (3.5 out of 5) But where else is there? East Bay preferred, but we'll travel if necessary. What say you, Chowsters?

  1. Hmm, I'm not going to be able to help your search. But I'd love to hear about the vegan shakes at Saturn and what makes them your standard.

      What can I say? I've only had the mint chip, but it's hard to imagine a vegan shake getting any better than that. It's creamy, sweet, thick, and lacks the subtle but mysterious twang that is present in some non-dairy products masquerading as milk-based.

      But do I know of vegan shakes? No, I say. I've only had the ones from Saturn. I look to expand my options and my horizons.

      The search continues.

        You've sold me on Saturn.

        Have you tried the shake at Berkeley's Herbivore? Here's the beverage menu.

    2. I'd make it at home, find Genuto (sold at Whole Foods & made in Berkeley made from nuts (I haven't tried it myself, but sounds good) & add Almond Milk or whatever you want.

      Website for Genuto:
