Kaylee’s Eatery

This Bedfordview eatery has become an over night sensation. With their yummy bowls, Beyond Meat burgers, all day breakfasts, open sandwiches and delightful desserts, we are not surprised. But, of course, they make it to this list because of their vegan milkshakes. At the time of writing, Kaylee’s had five gourmet shakes on their menu; Oreo, Coffee Shake, Chocolate Brownie, Strawberry and Peanut Butter. All are fantastic in their own right, but we have a soft spot for the classic Strawberry, made with a coconut base and fresh strawberries.

Hudsons The Burger Joint

This ‘dude-food’ joint offers a variety of tasty food in large portions, from the burgers and pizzas to the tacos and salads. But unlike most other restaurants in their category, they also offer a large range of vegan treats. These includes burgers, pizza, fried wings, tacos, appetisers, ice cream and a vegan milkshake. This Vegan Oreo Shake is a creamy treat that will satisfy even the largest of appetites. We recommend pairing this with the Panko Crumbed Wings, a mouthwatering vegan morsel served with vegan mayo, sriracha and vacon bits.

Asher’s Farm Sanctuary

Asher’s Farm Sanctuary is a sanctuary in Pretoria East that cares for harmed and abandoned farm animals. They have an onsite café which serves up some of the most tantalising vegan food we’ve ever had. It is worth making the trip all the way north just for their juicy burgers and tasty milkshakes. Their Deluxe Shakes are available in Cookies ‘n Cream, Strawberry Marshmallow, Rum ‘n Raisin and Peanut Butter Crunch. It’s difficult to choose one, but the Peanut Butter Crunch is a firm favourite.

Conscious 108

Conscious 108 doesn’t have any vegan milkshakes on their menu. However, they do offer five different types of “Un-Milkshakes”. Made from their house-made soya milk ice cream, these Un-Milkshakes are available in Conscious Chocolate, Very Vanilla, Choc Peanut Butter, Vanilla Oreo and Just Berry. The Choc Peanut Butter is a fan favourite, but they’re all worth a try, at least once. Pair this with a filling burger or a scrumptious pizza.
