Creamy Chocolate Hazelnut Shake! A lower fruit smoothie-ish treat with hazelnuts, cacao, chia seeds, and dates. Or add ice for a healthy dairy-free frosty!



  • 1/4 cup (30g) toasted hazelnuts*
  • 1 cup (240g) non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 pitted (40g) medjool dates**
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Make it a frosty: add 1 cup ice OR a frozen banana OR 1/2-1 cup frozen cauliflower


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender (if you don’t have a powerful blender, soak the nuts beforehand).
  2. Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. About 30 seconds.
  3. Add ice if using. Blend again briefly.
  4. Top with coconut whipped cream, chopped hazelnuts, and dark chocolate. Enjoy!


*You can use other nuts (cashews or walnuts would be yummy!) or hemp seeds for a nut-free option.

**Or 1 tbsp sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, coconut nectar, etc.) Or use stevia or another sugar-free sweetener instead for a low carb/sugar option.
