Burger King has been putting classic popular breakfast cereals into milkshakes, much to the delight and nostalgia of the internet. But if you have certain dietary restrictions, like if you’re vegan, then this is a cultural moment you might miss out on. Also, it turns out, Froot Loops aren’t vegan because they contain D3, which is sometimes sourced from lanolin, a sheep oil. Have no fear! We’ve put together a vegan version of the popular Froot Loops milkshake that you can make at home. Read on to delight in this crunchy, sweet, throwback treat.

Vegan “Froot Loops” Milkshake

(Makes 1 milkshake)


  • 2 bananas
  • 1/3 cup almond milk, plus more if needed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Fruitful O’s, plus more for topping


1. Cut your banana into slices and lay them out on wax paper on a tray. Place in the freezer for at least two hours.

2. Blend your frozen banana slices and 1/3 cup almond milk until the mixture is creamy and smooth. If you like your milkshakes a little more liquid-y, you can add more almond milk, but we prefer ours pretty thick.

3. Add in vanilla extract and Fruitful O’s and blend for about five seconds or until it seems that the ingredients are well-mixed. You don’t want to blend for too long because you want the cereal to stay crunchy.

4. Serve immediately in a glass, top with more O’s, and enjoy.
