This shake is as creamy as it is delicious. A staple in our house when I need to get out the door but don’t have time to have breakfast and have a coffee. This combines both! The protein from the Greek yogurt and the nuts give this shake staying power. The healthy fats will also keep you satisfied longer.


  • 1/2 cup soy milk

  • 2 shots espresso, cool

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 Tbsp cocoa

  • 1/2 cup 2%  plain Greek yogurt ( or ½ pack of soft tofu)

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 Tbsp. nut butter 

  • 1 Medjool date (or 2 regular dates, they are a bit smaller)



  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth, about 30-45 seconds. Add more milk if needed for desired consistency.

  2. If you prefer a caffeine-free shake sub the shots of espresso for an extra ½ cup of milk
