Sugar-free Lemon Ginger Cream Sipper

  • Author: Annie
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (the kind in the carton, not canned) or almond-coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup date paste
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds, ground


  1. Put all ingredients into a high-speed or regular blender and process until smooth. Divide between 2 glasses and drink immediately – or chill for an hour or so. This will also thicken up the drink a little bit.
  2. If you like, add a little grated lemon zest


  • To grind chia seeds, put them in a coffee/spice grinder and pulse a few times. They break down very quickly.
  • To make date paste, soak a bunch of pitted dates in water for 15-30 minutes. Drain and place in a food processor. I add a little bit of water to get things going. Pulse, stop and scrape down the sides of the processor and continue like this until you have a silky smooth paste.
