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


  1. Prepare coffee and let cool.
  2. 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.
