Dairy-Free Pumpkin Chip Milkshake | A yummy treat that's a cross between pumpkin pie and chocolate chip cookie! It's so HEALTHY and DELICIOUS made with bananas, coconut cream, and pumpkin puree. YUM! | simplytothrive.com

A dairy-free milkshake? That tastes good? I know, I know, you may be thinking it won’t work.

But let me tell you my friends, it does. It totally does! And it’s delicious! Oh my goodness…

It’s like a cross between a slice of pumpkin pie and a chocolate chip cookie, but in a shake that just makes you wanna dance! It’s so easy and packed with fall flavor. Disregard that its a cold rink and you may live in cold weather. You can drink it by the fire! 😉

I’ve been all about pumpkin lately and this shake does it justice.

One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is show people how eating very healthy does not mean that you can’t enjoy what you eat. Healthy does not equal depravity or complicated, but thriving!

It can very much taste better and makes you feel better. 

Especially, this yummy treat. There are just a few ingredients blended together: pumpkin puree, coconut cream, frozen banana, molasses, spices, ice, and cocao nibs with ice. Topped with my Healthiest Raw Cookie Dough. BAM!! So stinkin’ good!

Sometimes you just want a milkshake, and this pumpkin shake is proof that a milkshake can be dairy-free, using the frozen banana and coconut cream for that super creamy and rich milkshake texture, can be delicious, and can be packed with nutrients!

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Chip Milkshake
Total Time
10 mins
 
Author: Noelle Parton
Ingredients
  • Pumpkin puree, fresh or 100% canned
  • Banana, ripe, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • Coconut butter or cream
  • Molasses
  • Spices: fresh ginger, cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg
  • Ice
  • Raw cacao nibs
  • My Healthiest Raw Cookie Dough, linked above
Instructions
  1. In a blender, place equal parts frozen, sliced banana and ice. A good rule of thumb is use 1/2 banana for every serving of milkshake you want.
  2. Add about equal amounts of pumpkin purée to banana, so if using 1/2 banana use about 1/2 cup pumpkin purée. Feel free to use more if you want it extra pumpkin-y!
  3. Use about 1/4 the amount of coconut butter or 1/2 the amount of coconut cream to pumpkin purée.

  4. Now it's time to add your pumpkin spices! Add about 1-2 spoonfuls of molasses and as much spice as desired. I used a small knob of fresh ginger, and a few good shakes of ground cinnamon and clove, however, use as much of any of them as wanted.
  5. Blend all of these ingredients together, adding water while blending until desired thickness.
  6. Finally, add in a few spoonfuls of cocao nibs and blend again. Top with the cookie dough balls, or other desired toppings. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The coconut cream can either be from full-fat coconut milk, from fresh coconut meat, or homemade from blended coconut butter and water like I did. Other options instead of coconut cream: use a spoonful or two of almond butter or extra frozen banana!
