Sweet Treats

Just a little Friday afternoon pick-me-up!

If you live within a reasonable distance of any vegan donut and milkshake vendors, I highly suggest that you stop reading and promptly head over to such a place. If not, I hope my photos of these Pacific Northwest treats will suffice. :)

Sip. The infamous vegan milkshake cart that beckons weary grocery shoppers on their way in and out of Portland’s People’s Food Co-Op. There’s nothing cuter, really. My sister opted for the classic Cookies & Cream shake…

While I–somewhat predictably–got Chocolate Peanut Butter. Technically, it was chocolate coconut peanut butter because I decided Coconut Bliss ice cream was worth the extra $1.50. There’s something about an overflowing milkshake in a old-school diner glass that really tugs at your heartstrings, isn’t there? Or maybe that’s the peanut butter…

In my humble opinion, shakes > donuts, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t a veritable kid in a candy shop when I stepped into Seattle’s Mighty-O Donuts. Actually, I was a 22-year-old in a donut shop; but my eyes lit up the same way, I swear. I think my sister could attest to the truth of that statement.

Not only is that a French Toast donut; it’s an organic French Toast donut that was thoroughly enjoyed alongside a wonderful soy latté on a cloudy Seattle day.

Chomp. Chomp. Chomp.

  1. I am so jealous. I would have killed for one of those milkshakes today, it was SO hot out. We don’t have anywhere to get any vegan goodies like that here :(

  2. Ooooohhhhhh, I love this post!! Everything about it – your writing, the items which you describe, your pictures, and the treats in your pictures! Yay! Sadly, no vegan donut joint is near me. But I think I can make the hitting-up-a-vegan-milkshake-joint thing happen…

  3. Drooooooool…

  4. Drool, indeed! :) I’m moving somewhere solely based on the availability of their vegan treats. Luckily, I married someone who is with me on that dream.

  5. I am jealous of your life. The extent of the vegan establishments that I have near me is a vegetarian co-op that sells fish oil. Also my kitchen.

    Looks delicious!

  6. Yum! Those shakes look so amazing. Jealous! :)

  7. Oh my gosh! It all looks soooo good!

  8. Overflowing vegan milkshakes and donuts sounds like heaven!

  9. oh, you were here in Portland? (or was this not even very recent?) hope you had a lovely time!

  10. Oohhh boy…I think I just passed out there. This post is INTENSE. I think I would live at that shop, it all looks adorable and perfect. And a french toast donut? Seriously? That is my dream come true.

  11. Oh yum, I’m so jealous!

  16. did you mean “chomp chomp chomp?” because it probably sounded more like “nom nom nom”… on the flip side, i just added to my to-do list: make a reddit account for the sole reason of posting this blog. its so cool! i admire you a lot and would love to hear where you get all these ideas for cooking cool new things.
