Thick, rich, and caffeinated (unless you use decaf, which is a-OK), this concoction gets its extreme creaminess courtesy of avocado and frozen banana. Tahini lends depth of flavor, and a pinch of kosher salt and dollop of maple syrup balance everything out. Who said you couldn't have dessert for breakfast?


  • 1 cup oat milk

  • ½ cup strong brewed coffee, chilled

  • 2 tablespoons tahini

  • ½ ripe avocado

  • 1 1⁄2 cups frozen, very ripe banana slices (from about 1 1⁄2 bananas)

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, starting with oat milk and coffee. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.
