Hi, I’m Candice & welcome to The Edgy Veg! Where I try to veganize popular food for vegans, plant-based diets & people who are trying to eat more plants over… y’know the use of animals.
Do you remember being a kid and after soccer practice or just on a super hot day, going to Dairy Queen and getting your favourite flavoured blizzard? Mine was ALWAYS the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup (with extra peanut butter cups). However, I also loved the Strawberry Shortcake blizzard!
So now that we’re an adult (and a vegan or aiming for a plant-based diet), who says we can’t still enjoy our favourite childhood treat?! 2 ingredients and 5 minute prep time to veganize a piece of your childhood, what more could you ask for?
How To Make: Vegan DQ Strawberry Shortcake Blizzard

All you need for this recipe is 1 pint of dairy-free ice cream (I used So Delicious Very Vanilla Cashew milk, you could also make your own), 1 slice of vegan strawberry cheesecake (I used Daiya brand vegan cheesecake), and strawberry jam or strawberry sauce. I like cashew-based vegan ice creams rather than coconut based, but you can use whatever dairy-free ice cream you like best. You can also switch out the toppings and mix-ins to create your favourite flavour of vegan blizzard.
Recipe for Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Blizzard
The first thing that you want to do is roughly chop up your slice of cheesecake. Next, you want to soften the ice cream, you can add it to a food processor or blender, but I like the results best out of my stand mixer. Add the ice cream to the bowl and mix with the paddle attachment to soften it before adding toppings.
Once soft, you can add in the chunks of strawberry cheesecake and jam. Be careful not to over-mix, because you want a strawberry swirl, not melted strawberry ice cream. If you need to you can scrape down the sides of the mixer. Scoop into your cup/bowl of choice, flip upside down for DQ authenticity, and enjoy your thick, chunky, ice cream treat.
