This Shakerato is this summer's coolest dairy-free coffee drink

We’ve got some good news, and some bad news. The bad news is, 49th Parallel isn’t doing milkshakes this year. The good news is, they’re making a dope dairy-free Shakerato that is this summer’s must-try coffee drink.

The Shakerato has its roots in Italy, where the basic combo of espresso, simple syrup, and ice is shaken to a delightful froth. 49th Parallel’s version kicks up the flavour and creaminess, but still keeps it dairy free.

It’s got espresso, cashew milk, vanilla, and cardamom and it’s shaken and served over ice.

Pair it with one of Lucky’s amazing seasonal doughnuts (the Rhubarb Crumble is divine), their innovative new Sourdoughnuts (or sibling the Chocolate Sourdoughnut), or a classic (hello Salted Caramel or PB&J), and your summer treat game will be on point.

The Shakerato is available at both 49th Parallel coffee shop locations.
