Burgerville added a brand-new milkshake to its rotating menu of seasonal favorites with ingredients sourced from the Pacific Northwest. The Almond Butter Milkshake is a delicious treat that is available now for a limited time throughout Burgerville’s 42 restaurant locations.
“Our Almond Butter Milkshake melds the nutty flavors of roasted almonds and cashews with a touch of Oregon honey for sweetness,” says chef Becky McGrath. “The almond cashew butter is then blended with vanilla ice cream and topped with a dollop of Oregon strawberry jam and real whipped cream for an enticing combination.”
Burgerville chose to partner with two respected local companies on the new shake: Portland-based Ground Up PDX and Hood River-based Oregon Growers.
Based in Portland, Ground Up PDX makes delicious nut butters that are peanut-free, while providing employment opportunities to women overcoming adversity. The company hires women in transition to work part-time, providing them with job skills, on-the-job mentoring, and ultimately the confidence to transition into their next phase of life.
Located in Hood River, Oregon Growers produces farm-direct food from Pacific Northwest ingredients, cultivating long-term partnerships with regional growers while encouraging and supporting sustainable growing and operating practices. Its strawberry jam used in Burgerville’s new shake is made with fresh, peak-of-the-season Oregon strawberries from the Willamette Valley.
Burgerville’s Almond Butter Milkshake is available now through April 15.
