Tahini date shake – inspired by the famous Palm Springs date shakes, but healthier! This shake or smoothie is the perfect healthy breakfast or quick afternoon pick-me-up. Super creamy and full of flavor and nutrients. Dairy-free, vegan, and paleo.


  • 1 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 12 pitted Medjool dates, depending on sweetness preference
  • 1 tablespoon tahini paste (I like Seed + Mill or this brand)
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 serving of unsweetened protein powder or collagen peptides, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a small handful of ice
  • sesame seeds for serving, optional


  1. Add all ingredients (except for sesame seeds) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
