This 5-Ingredient Coffee Shake with Tahini is a perfectly sweet and nutty! Made with dates and fresh coffee, this perky blend is frothy like a milkshake and totally vegan. Start your day on a delicious note with this healthy, dairy-free smoothie!
- 1 cup brewed coffee, or one double shot of espresso
- 1/3 cup high-quality tahini (should be very liquid)
- 4 large Medjool dates, or 1 small frozen banana (depending on how sweet you like things)*
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 TBS ground flax, optional
- 3 cups ice
- Pinch cinnamon for topping, optional
- Prepare coffee and let cool.
- Combine brewed coffee, tahini, dates, salt, optional flax and ice in a high-speed blender until fully combined. Top with cinnamon to serve and enjoy!
*Feel free to start out with 4 dates and taste to see if the sweetness is to your preference. Some Medjools are very juicy while some can be more dry, so I recommend customizing as needed.
