½ cup coconut milk (from a can)
4-8 soft medjool dates, pits removed*
¼ cup cacao powder
1 ½ cup unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups ice
Pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons cacao nibs for topping (optional)
1 tablespoon cacao powder for topping (optional)
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Serve immediately topped with Vanilla Bean Sea Salt Coconut Whipped Cream, cacao nibs, and cacao powder if you like.
*Fresh dates should be soft and sticky. If yours are hard, soften them by soaking in hot water for a few minutes. When ready to make the shakes, drain the water and proceed with the recipe.
