The Retro-American eatery, Ed’s Diner, has added two vegan milkshakes to its menu, following the skyrocketing demand for plant-based options.

Strawberry and Reese’s peanut butter

Ed’s Diner, which first opened in 1987, has made a vegan version of their strawberry and Reese’s peanut butter milkshakes in all of their 22 stores across the UK.

They’ve also introduced the Moving Mountains burger to their menu, which was recently nominated for the National Burger Awards 2019.

The burger, made from mushrooms, wheat, and soy proteins, is topped with guacamole, plant-based cheese, salsa, and sliced jalapenos.

‘We want vegans to feel completely catered for’

Marketing Director at Ed’s Diner, Catherine Salloux, said: “We know that consumer attitudes to dining are changing rapidly and we want to accommodate this. Going vegan or vegetarian, doesn’t mean that food must be bland or boring and we’re here to make that point.

“We want vegans to feel completely catered for when they come to eat with us. The shakes and burger can be enjoyed by anyone – it’s good food that just so happens to be vegan.”
