I have reviewed various recipes for copycat sonic shake recipe and they all use vanilla flavor. But I don't like vanilla flavor. Can I add any other flavor to it?

Why would you want to use a copycat recipe, if you don't like the item being copied? – SAJ14SAJ Jan 3 '14 at 13:48
Are you trying to mimic a flavor they actually make, other than vanilla? It does look like they have a lot of other flavors: People can certainly make suggestions for one of them, if you tell them what flavor you actually want. – Jefromi Jan 4 '14 at 4:01
Welcome to Seasoned Advice! Your question is being downvoted mostly because it's a little unclear. The answer seems like an obvious "yes!" It's your shake, do with it what you want. Are you asking for a replacement that is similar to vanilla? Or are you maybe asking if it will still taste like a Sonic shake? – Preston Fitzgerald Jan 5 '14 at 5:16

Of course you can. It won't be a copycat anymore, but it's still a smoothie. You can add any flavor that appeals to you. Vanilla is entirely optional.

It might still be a copycat if it's for one of Sonic's other flavors, but the OP certainly wasn't clear if that was the intent. – Jefromi Jan 4 '14 at 4:02
