Coffee Tahini Cinnamon Smoothie

Spread the love

This coffee tahini cinnamon smoothie can be enjoyed for breakfast, snack, or dessert! It’s energizing, just sweet enough, and packed with healthy fat, magnesium, iron, and protein.

Even though it’s only been a few days, I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve sat down and written a blog post! It’s been very hot and dry where I live, and I’m one of those rare lovers of cool, wet weather. I truly feel that the heat diminishes my creativity and motivation. When it’s this hot, all I want to do is laze about with a mojito in one hand and a book in the other. (Right now, I’m reading another Bill Bryson classic, The Lost Continent: Travels In Small Town America. It’s a hoot!) Thankfully, I got ahead on recipe development last month, so worry not. 😉

This coffee tahini cinnamon smoothie has it all: creamy frozen banana, sweet Medjool date, energizing coffee, luscious tahini, super nourishing hemp, and an unexpected pop of spice from cinnamon. I have gotten into the habit of enjoying this smoothie, or a variation thereof, as an afternoon snack before or after working out! If you find yourself falling into an afternoon energy slump, this smoothie is exactly what you need.

nutritional benefits of this smoothie

Did you know that tahini is a nutritional all-star? Not only is it rich in iron and calcium, it’s also a fabulous source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Hemp is also an excellent source of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids, while also boasting impressive amounts of magnesium, iron, and protein.

Finally, bananas and dates are rich in potassium and fibre. Yes, they contain sugar, but I wouldn’t worry too much about natural fruit sugars. If you’re in good health, as long as you take in some fibre, fat, and protein along with sugar, your blood sugar shouldn’t be negatively impacted. It’s all about balance.

This coffee tahini cinnamon smoothie can be enjoyed for breakfast, snack, or dessert! It’s energizing, just sweet enough, and packed with healthy fat, magnesium, iron, and protein.



  • 1/2 cup cold strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 large frozen banana, chopped
  • 1 heaping tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp hemp
  • 1 pitted Medjool date
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of fine sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


For the coffee, just brew coffee using your preferred method (I use a French press) and refrigerate until cold. Or, if you have cold brew on hand, use that!

Make sure that the date is super soft for ease of blending. If your dates are hard, soak one in a dish of warm water for 30 minutes to soften.

To bump up the protein of this smoothie (if, for instance, you want to enjoy it as a full breakfast), add a scoop of your favourite vanilla-flavoured vegan protein powder. You might wish to omit the date if your protein powder is sweetened.
