While smoothies typically take front and center during warmer months this particular shake will be beloved regardless of the season. A creamy lucuma-infused mocha-esque shake made with fresh almond milk, frozen banana, vanilla bean, cinnamon spice, chia seeds and whole coffee beans.


  • 2 C Almond milk (preferably homemade)
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Lucuma (optional)
  • 5-10 Whole coffee beans
  • 1/2 Frozen banana (optional)*
  • 1 Medjool Date, pitted
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of vanilla powder


  1. Blend together all ingredients in a high-powered blender. Serve immediately.


* If omitting the frozen banana, add a small handful of ice to chill the smoothie. You may also want to add an extra date or your favourite sweetener to boost the sweetness a touch.
