  • 2 frozen bananas, sliced
  • 4 pitted Medjool dates (if they’re too big, you can chop them up a bit.)
  • 1/4 cup tahini (I used Soom tahini)
  • 1/4 cup crushed ice
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • Pinch ground cinnamon, more for later


  1. Place the sliced frozen bananas in your blender, add the remaining ingredients.
  2. Run blender until you achieve a smooth and creamy shake.
  3. Transfer the banana date shakes to serving cups and add pinch more ground cinnamon on top. Enjoy!


  • Tips for How to Freeze Bananas: peel ripe bananas and cut into 1 to 2 inch slices. Arrange the slices on a large baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours. Once frozen, transfer the sliced bananas to freezer safe bags or containers and return to freezer for later use.
  • Need A Little More Sweetness? This banana shake is just the right amount of sweet, but if you feel you need a little more sweetness, add a drizzle of quality honey and blend again.
  • Prepare Ahead Storage Instructions: Pour into mason jars or freezer-safe mason jars, cover tightly and refrigerate for 1 to 2 nights or freeze up to 3 months. After 1st night, the shake may naturally separate, go ahead and give it a stir before drinking. If you do make extra to freeze, thaw in the fridge one night before.
