Vegan Banana and Biscoff Freakshake

Rich and decadent this vegan banana and biscoff freakshake is a dessert in a glass! The base recipe is so simple and quick to whip up with just 5 ingredients, then top with homemade baked donuts and whipped cream for a deliciously extravagant sweet treat!
Wondering what a freakshake even is? They actually hale from Canberra, Australia and were dreamt up by a small cafe owner. They’re a combination of a milkshake drink and a dessert. The milkshake is topped with cream, topped with cake, topped with sauce. With a handful of sweets thrown in for good measure.
And I’ve been dying to try one since I first heard about them! But how to indulge in one without ending up wearing it? Make your own and wear old clothes 😉
Pretty sure that should be my autobiography title.
Anyhoo. Freakshakes are generally calorie laden creations and whilst we’re approaching the season of over indulgence we’re not quite there yet. You can use any vegan ice cream for this, even those super low calorie ones. It’s there for a bit of flavour and that iconic milkshake thickness. The flavour comes from the Biscoff and the banana. I’ve used Foodie Flavours banana flavouring for this freakshake. You can control the strength of the banana flavour and it’s a wonderful companion to the nutty, caramel flavour of the Biscoff. I was going to use the Biscoff spread but I wanted some crumbles on the top of the cream so used the biscuits. The scraped off middle bit goes in the milkshake and the biscuit bit goes on top. Double the deliciousness!
How to turn your milkshake into a freakshake
It’s up to you what you put on top of your milkshake to turn it into a freakshake. But I thoroughly recommend my Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donuts that can be found in our free e-book. Just sign up to our newsletter here for access to our e-book that features some of our favourites and some never before published exclusives. Like these cinnamon sugar donuts!
Whipped cream is also a given. It adds to that whole dessert in a glass vibe. You can get vegan squirty cream in a can now or Elmlea does a great double cream that can be whipped to beautifully soft fluffy peaks.
And you know, when you’ve had one of those weeks and you just want something sweet, sticky and gooey? Well, look no further, banana and biscoff freakshake has got your back.
