Vegan Delights at Shake Shack: A Look at the Plant-Based Menu!
Shake Shack has become a beloved fast food joint in the US and beyond. It’s a hip, fun and modern eatery with a menu that caters to all types of eaters. And now, with the launch of their new plant-based menu, Shake Shack has taken their food offerings to a whole new level.
What’s on the Plant-Based Menu?
The menu includes vegan ShackBurger, Shack-cago Dog, ‘Shroom Burger and a vegan version of their classic crinkle cut fries. Each item is made with plant-based proteins, like the Beyond Burger and vegan cheese, and they’re all on a delicious vegan bun. There’s even a black and white milkshake made with almond milk and topped with coconut whip. Every item on the menu is 100% vegan, so you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination.
The Health Benefits
With the new plant-based menu, Shake Shack is bringing even more health benefits to their customers. The Beyond Burger is made with a combination of pea protein, rice protein, and mung bean protein, which means it has 20 grams of plant-based protein in a single serving. Plus, it’s also gluten-free, cholesterol-free, and contains no cholesterol, soy, or gluten. And the vegan cheese is made with a blend of cashews and coconut oil, which is a healthier alternative to dairy cheese.
The Environmental Impact
Shake Shack is also doing its part to help the environment by using plant-based proteins. The Beyond Burger uses 99% less water to produce than a beef burger, and it generates 90% less greenhouse gas emissions. Plus, it requires significantly less land and energy than traditional meats. So not only are you getting a delicious and healthier meal when you choose the plant-based menu, you’re also helping to reduce your impact on the environment.
The Taste Test
Of course, the most important part of any meal is how it tastes, and we are happy to report that the plant-based menu at Shake Shack does not disappoint. The Beyond Burger has an amazing texture and flavor, and is sure to please even the most discerning of burger connoisseurs. And the vegan cheese melts perfectly on top of the burger, adding a creamy and delicious finishing touch. The Shack-cago Dog is also a great choice, with a juicy and flavorful vegan sausage and all the classic toppings.
Shake Shack’s plant-based menu is surprisingly affordable. The ShackBurger costs $5.50, the Shack-cago Dog is $5.50, and the ‘Shroom Burger is $6.75. The vegan crinkle cut fries are $3.
