cherries & berries sky high shake

We saw NYC’s latest food craze Black Tap’s insane milkshakes, and wanted to put a slightly healthier spin on it by including some more nutrient dense ingredients.

Please note that this is still a dessert and it’s not something that our nutritionist Jess would recommend having too often, but life is about balance after all!


One of the snacks in this recipe has been delisted! Check out the products below the instructions for substitute suggestions.


  • 300 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp linseeds
  • frozen mixed berries
  • 12 frozen banana
  • 3 ice cubes
  • coconut yoghurt
  • cashew butter
  • fresh dried sour cherries
  • 1 tsp blueberries


Blend the almond milk, linseeds, frozen berries, banana and ice cubes in your blender until smooth.

Pour the shake into a cup (bonus points for mason jars!) and let it sit in the freezer for 5-10 minutes (a firmer shake can hold even more tasty toppings).

After the shake is firm (but not frozen!) spoon some coconut yogurt on top and drizzle the cashew butter all over. If it seems like it’s all going to roll off the top, place back into the freezer to firm up again.

Top the shake with cherries & berries and drizzle with summer berry compote.

Skewer some fresh berries and ease them into your slightly frozen toppings, along with a rigid plastic straw.

Drink half now and save half for later or share your shake with a lucky friend!
