vegan date shake 

Ingredients in this date shake:

 
    1. Joolies Pitted Dates 
      • Medjool dates give this shake the perfect amount of sweetness, while packing in good nutrients like magnesium, potassium, antioxidants and more.
    2. Goodmylk Co. Almond Mylk
      • This helps give the shake the perfect and thick consistency, while keeping it dairy free and vegan! We recommend starting with 1 cup and adding more to thin out the shake if necessary.
    3. Tahini 
      • This nut-free butter made from sesame seeds is key to creating a creamy, milkshake-like texture. Some of our favorites are Once Again and Thrive Market.
    4. Frozen Cauliflower
      • Yes that's right! Frozen cauliflower is a little secret ingredient to getting a super creamy shake and a boost of nutrients at the same time. The best part? You can't even taste it, we promise! 
    5. Frozen Sweet Potato
      • Another hidden veggie to help achieve that creamy texture. We recommend baking a sweet potato then cutting and freezing instead of a pre-frozen bag for a fresher taste.
    6. Cocoa (or Cacao) Powder
    7. Vanilla and Cinnamon
      • These help to compliment the other flavors to get the frosty-like shake!  

Optional Add-ins:

    1. Ground Flaxseed
      • This adds healthy omega-3 fatty acids and great boost of fiber, protein, antioxidants and more. You can check out more benefits of flaxseed here.
    2. Oats
      • This grain is a great addition for a thicker and heartier shake. We recommend adding in 1/3 cup if desired. Note: This recipe will no longer be paleo if oats are added. 
    3. Hemp Seeds
      • Another great source of healthy fats, protein, and more. You can read more about the benefits of this nutritious seed here.
    4. Collagen Peptides
      • A great source of protein that also has many benefits for hair, skin, gut, and joints. This is one brand we love and you can also learn more about collagen peptides on their website.
