Coffee LSA shake

  • Servings


The combination of linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds (LSA) has been enjoyed for its health benefits for many years. In a milkshake it makes for a great start to the day, especially with the combination of cocoa and coffee flavours.

  • 4 bananas
  • 4 tbsp instant coffee
  • 300ml almond milk
  • 6 tbsp LSA
  • 3 tbsp good-quality dark cocoa powder (Fair Trade, of course)
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp dates
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 tbsp whole almonds
  • 50g Whittaker’s dark chocolate

1 In a food processor or a blender, blitz all the ingredients (except whole almonds) together until smooth.

2 Pour the shake mix into 4 glasses, then microplane or finely grate the almonds and dark chocolate over the top – watch your knuckles.
