Perfect if you are trying to give up a morning coffee, and are used to the very sweet flavoured coffees that are loaded with sugar syrup. All the sweetness from this milkshake comes from fruit. Normal dates are used in this to give a sweet fudgy flavour, just make sure that they have been pitted.

I deliberately don’t use any pre-made dairy free milk as it’s expensive, often not that healthy and usually very low in nuts / seeds (almond milk can be <1% almonds). It saves time just blending everything together in one and no additives or nasties are added. Hazelnuts blend smooth in my standard 600w blender and give a rich creamy dairy free texture. Full of heart healthy fats.

Depending on how much you like cocoa / cacao add 1 or 2 tbsp. I like a dark and slightly bitter chocolate milkshake so add two heaped tbsp. If you prefer a sweeter milkshake just add 1, then taste as you can always add more.

Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Fudge Milkshake Recipe


  • 2 bananas, frozen work best as they make the drink chilled
  • ¼ cup / 35 g hazelnuts, I use raw but you can use toasted if you prefer
  • 1-2 tbsp cocoa / cacao, 2 if you like dark chocolate
  • 6-9 dates, just normal ones will do – but make sure they are pitted
  • 1 cup / 250 ml water, cold is preferable

How to make

  1. Place everything in the blender and blend until it’s smooth. You will hear the difference when all the nuts have been broken up.
  2. Drink as soon as it’s made, garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa and a slice of banana if you like.
  3. To make it more fudgy add more dates, I often do this before a big day when I need the energy.

  1. Thank you so much for these inspired and yummy recipes. I was attracted by the smoked cashew cheese and then those sweets really mesmerised me – lol. I want to eliminate refined sugar and cheese from my diet (-deep sigh) and I am happy I have found these alternatives. I will definitely give them a try. Once again, big thank you!

  2. I’m not at all certain how anyone could possibly consider this “healthy.” This one serving has a whopping 61.4 grams of sugar alone. Here’s the nutritional breakdown according to

    1. Hi there, I think it’s less sugar than that – it’s just from two bananas and a handful of dates. That’s for the full pint and I don’t think anyone would have that in a sitting! the sugars are just from the fruit – dates and bananas. They come with fibre and vitamins. Sugar isn’t always a bad thing if it’s natural, what’s bad is refined and stripped of everything but pure sugar. I do worry about these days where people are demonising whole fruit as an unhealthy thing.
