It’s the fourth of July. It is hot. Like really hot. You need to cool down, it is holiday so you want a special treat, it is still bikini season and you want to keep it healthy…. You want this delicious Strawberry Tahini Shake!
Somewhere between a smoothie and a milkshake. It is gluten, diary and sugar free. It tastes super treat-ish but feels good while being good for you. Who doesn’t love a win-win?
It is holiday week so let’s keep this strawberry tahini shake post short. Put ingredients in a blender. Blend until thick, creamy and smooth. Enjoy!
Oh you wanted more details? Fine….
How to Make Strawberry Tahini Shake
I am still determined to make this post short. We have a parade and fireworks to worry about. Also, dogs. Dogs and fireworks do not mix. You can see our current adoptable, Julia, here.
Here is goes…the details behind our super yummy strawberry tahini shake….
Either the strawberries or the banana need to be frozen, but just one. Perfect texture depends on this.
A very ripe banana yields the perfect sweetness. Not to mention it takes the pressure of having to bake banana bread because you can’t waste produce.
Peanut butter is not tahini. Don’t even think about it. That is a different recipe for a different time.
A pinch of salt, no other seasoning. OK if you use a different nondairy milk, like Hemp or Soy, you may want a splash of vanilla. But we rock out with this macadamia nut milk which has a vanilla undertone so none needed. P.S. we love this stuff and no this isn’t a sponsored post!
Again, blend and done. Happy? Take a sip- you are extremely happy.
While you could eat this for breakfast, I most enjoy it as a dessert following our lemony artichoke filled Mediterranean Zoodles. But go ahead drink strawberry tahini shakes for breakfast, and lunch, and dessert. No one will judge.
