Panos’s ‘Milk’ Shake

By Panos Anastasakis | Serves 3

A failsafe favourite with children (and bigger kids too); they won’t even notice it’s dairy-free!


  • 3 cups home-made almond milk (blend 1 cup soaked almonds with 3 cups water, then strain through a nut mylk bag) – if you can’t be bothered, just buy a good organic almond milk instead
  • 2-3 dates, chopped and pitted
  • 2 drops natural, alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon


  1. Blitz all ingredients together EXCEPT chia seeds in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.
  2. Serve with a tablespoon of chia seeds stirred in. Or, if you want a smoother consistency, blend the chia seeds in with the rest of the mixture in step 1.
