Creating milkshakes for gatherings can be tricky. With the amount of food sensitivities in our family alone, it’s not always easy to find products that work for everyone.

To help make our daughter’s first birthday a success, we collaborated with Planet Oat to showcase a new oatmilk that is so delicious! It’s rich and creamy taste has just a hint of sweetness, even though there is no added sugar. Planet Oat Oatmilk is free from dairy, peanuts, soy and even gluten.

Although it can be consumed as a treat or in your favorite coffee blend, we decided to give it a try in our birthday milkshakes for an upcoming event. We had our three-year-old test the milkshake prior to the party. Here’s his reaction:

Simple Is Always Best

Milkshakes have been a part of our lives for years. From trips to our local favorite burger joints, to treats for hitting milestones, we’ve made it a point to make these treats memorable for our kids.

With the use of fresh fruits and their choice of ice cream flavors, we’ve been able to create signature milkshakes that meet our boys’ taste palettes. Our three-year-old son loves anything with chocolate, and our five-year-old son enjoys the simplicity of vanilla shakes. For the birthday party, we thought it would be safe to go with the Planet Oat Oatmilk Original.

Vanilla Birthday Milkshake Recipe with Plant Oat Oatmilk

Creating the best milkshake means you need to have the right ingredients. To make our Vanilla Birthday Milkshake you need the following:

1 52 oz. Carton Planet Oat Oatmilk, Original
1.5 Quarts Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

1 Whipped Cream Can
1 Birthday sprinkles pack
2 Strawberries for garnish (optional)

The easiest way to make your milkshake nice and creamy is to let the ice cream sit for about 5 to 10 minutes outside of the freezer.

While you wait, prepare the blender and pour 2 ½ cups of Planet Oat Oatmilk into your blender. You can add 2 scoops of ice cream to your Planet Oat Oatmilk. Hit the “on” button and let it blend. Stop your blender and grab a cup. Be sure to choose the right size for your guests. We purchased small cups since we’re having a lot of small children over for the party.
Bonus tip: A smaller cup also makes it easier to have more servings for seconds!

Although I enjoyed the Vanilla Birthday Milkshake flavor, I prefer throwing in some fruit for added flavor. My version includes strawberries as well. Adding strawberries also turns the milkshake to a shade of pink. This works out well for the Pretty in Pink theme we’re going with for our daughter’s first birthday.

What we like most about Planet Oat Oatmilk is that it is wholesome. Each serving includes calcium, Vitamins A & D, and it has no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It’s even non-GMO and has 2g of soluble fiber.

  1. Yum! My mom is lactose free, so she’ll like that she can have this shake. I’ll have to make one for her.

  2. Ooh so adorable, my boy also drinks oat milk everyday since he was allergic to milk protein as a baby and has totally refused to go back to cow’s milk. I might try making a milkshake with it.

  3. This is a wonderful idea for a birthday milkshake, especially if kids don’t tolerate gluten and lactose. 🙂 It looks really yummy! 🙂

  4. I’ve never heard of oatmilk before. But I’m willing to give it a try. If it tastes anything like soy milk though, I’m out. LO!
