Half-gallon of soy milk, $3, quart of soy ice cream, $7 (gulp), dairy-free double chocolate syrup, $3, cherries, $3, straws and cups (already on hand) brings the grand total to $16.
Enjoying it more than a regular dairy-ladden one. Priceless. Well sort of. $8 a shake is still a bit much. I’m thinking of experimenting with our own ice cream recipe to see if we can get the cost down a little, but these really are good.
