How’s everyone’s new year’s resolutions so far?

I know a lot of people are trying to eat a bit differently this time of year and maybe inspiration is just kind of meh around the third week of January. The enthusiasm is starting to cool a bit. I find smoothies, juices, herbal tea, and the like really help with transitioning to a feel-good mode of living. They’re just super fresh, ready quickly, and delicious!

I think Em von Euw understands what a huge role juices, shakes, and little wholesome bites can play in personal wellness! Their newest book 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks has so many vibrant and delicious ideas to keep anyone satisfied. Em’s passion for inspiring others to feel their best shines through these pages of inspired combinations and clever observations. That contagious enthusiasm will speak to the experienced and newbie health warriors alike.

I took their basic nut milk formula, using walnuts upon their recommendation, and I can tell you with certainty that it won’t be the last time I do that. I’ve made almond, cashew, macadamia, hemp, coconut, and brazil nut milk before, but this here is something special. As soon as I tasted that buttery and toasty milk, I knew I had to mix it with banana, cinnamon, vanilla, and cacao nibs for a creamy-sweet banana bread feel.

Emily’s ratio of nuts to water for homemade non-dairy milk makes for a richer texture, and with this shake it was so decadent, nourishing and perfect. Other things from the book I’m excited to try: the grapefruit mango immune booster, hippie hemp hummus, the herb happiness juice, and the dark chocolate chip, oat and hemp cookies.

If you like this smoothie, you’ll also love my Chocolate Banana Oat Breakfast Smoothie and my Peanut Butter Vanilla Green Shake.

Author: Laura Wright


  • Blender


Walnut Milk

  • 1 cup raw walnuts, soaked for at least 4 hours
  • 3 cups filtered water

Banana Bread Shakes

  • 3 cups walnut milk
  • 2 cups sliced bananas, fresh or frozen
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • ice (optional)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs


Walnut Milk

  • Drain the soaked walnuts and place them in an upright blender. Add the filtered water to the blender. Blend the mixture on high for about 2 minutes, or until you have a fluid, creamy “milk.” Strain the milk with a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl or pitcher. Push the walnut pulp in the strainer with the back of a spoon to get all of the milk out. Pour the strained milk into a sealable container and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • The milk will separate, so just shake it every time you use it. Milk keeps in the fridge for about a week.

Banana Bread Shakes

  • In an upright blender, combine the walnut milk, sliced bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla powder and maple syrup (and ice, if using). Blend on high until you have a creamy and smooth mixture. Add the cacao nibs and blend for 10 seconds more–just so that you have little cacao “chips” throughout the drink.
  • Pour the banana bread shakes into glasses and garnish with toppings if you like. Serve cold.


  • Walnut milk inspired by Emily Von Euw‘s 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks
  • You could definitely fill this out with a bit of protein powder and other superfood-y goodies to make this more breakfast-appropriate. It totally drinks like dessert 🙂

    this sounds delicious, especially with the walnut milk, I have been a fan of This Rawsome Vegan Life for about 3 years, since I found it, in addition to Emily’s fabulous sweets she makes some awesome savory dishes as well, I love her salad dressings too. I’m in the mood for a blueberry pie smoothie, with some coconut whip cream or coconut vanilla ice cream, dried coconut flakes…Reply

  • Alexandra

    I would love to see a decadent creme brulee in shake form – which I’m sure could be done, with some tinkering from a delicious vanilla shake recipe. I just don’t have the patience to do it myself. 🙂Reply

    Carrot Cake!Reply

  • Courtney

    First off, I always love the vibe of your photos. Everything is so beautiful, bathed in natural light and shadows. I’m pretty sure I was hooked at the mention of walnut milk, but then you went and made a banana bread shake! Definitely going to try this as soon as possible. As for what dessert I would love to see in drinkable form…I think I’m going to go with pumpkin pie or hell, maybe even apple pie 🙂Reply

  • Danielle Sauers

    I’d love anything Creme Brulee flavored in drinkable form!Reply

    Not sure how this would work but… pecan pie! Or oatmeal raisin cookies.Reply

  • Suzan

    I would like to drink a baklava smoothie! 🙂Reply

  • Nayanna Holley

    Though Patty’s carrot cake idea sounds delish, I think I could actually faint if Sticky Toffee Pudding was made into a shake. All that caramel-y, ginger-y, goodness coming rapidly to me up a straw! Heaven!!Reply

  • Julie

    I adore carrot cake!I adore your posts and lovely photography and have learned so much from you! ThanksReply

  • Serena

    Ummmmm, and thick and cold, coconut cream pie!!Reply

  • RJ

  • Kittee Bee

    Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie!Reply

  • Jennifer Chorazy

    Oh yum!!! Going to make this ASAP!!!
    I would love to try a drink version of red velvet cake. The slight hint of cocoa and richness of the cream cheese frosting would knock anyone’s socks off!Reply

  • Sammy

    How about a sugar cookie shake? That would be so yummmm…Reply

  • Sara

    Lemon meringue pie, fo shizzle. That would be the best. Multi-season. Refreshing in the warmer months and brightening with some citrus sunshine in the colder months.Reply

  • Maggie Pitts

    Salted Butter Caramel Ice Cream!
    [Also: can’t wait to try walnut milk + this shake!]

    I’m also going to second any comments that suggest anything cheesecakey.Reply

    oh mama, i am SOOOO making this for my lunch date with a gal pal on monday. (if i can wait that long?! walnut milk!! say WHHAAATTT) dessert: tiramisu would be genius, ’cause you would make it healthy + cool.Reply

  • anu

    I just made a dutch baby the other day, I think the flavor would be lovely as a smoothie though I can’t even begin to imagine how to make it 🙂Reply

  • Jessica J

    Red Velvet Cake!! without the food coloring of courseReply

  • Katherine Call-Morin

    I think a shake would lend itself well to my favorite glazed kiwi and grape tart in ground almond crust.Reply

  • Shannon

    Key lime pie smoothies would be dangerously delicious!Reply

  • Lauren

    I’m currently obsessed with the chocolate macaroons from Whole Foods. We used to call them chocolate haystacks because they are made primarily of coconut. They’d make a great smoothy flavour.Reply

  • Michelle

    I would love to see smores in a smoothie!Reply

    Mint ice cream sandwiches! I’m going to distract myself with a loose-leaf tea now.Reply

  • michelle

    How about your dark chocolate and fig cinnamon rolls in drinkable form? Or maybe a slurpable sugar plum……Reply

  • Rachel

    Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of the ‘dessert as a smoothie’ concept – that said this recipes looks like it could win me over!

    I love, love, love lemon desserts so I think it would be awesome to try a lemon bar smoothie – tart, sweet and refreshing!Reply

  • Emily von Euw

    Ah, you da bomb. Gorgeous recipe + photos as usual. This post made me smile. Thanks so much, Laura <3Reply

  • Heather Lee

    oh, girl. my sweet tooth can be seduced in any consistency for sure. my pick would be a blackberry-peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream on top, in all of its tart, creamy, cinnamonny, vanilla-ey, glory.Reply

  • Sylvie Morgan Brown


  • jaime

    oh gosh, i’d love to hear more people talking about healthy eating and healthy ideas about gender and identity and other important things. why do these types of things seem to swim in such isolated currents?

    i’m so into drinkable desserts. i used to make a banana bread smoothie with butter. now i’d probably use a teeny bit of refined coconut oil + salt in its place, but i like the touch of silky fat and tenderness it gives to the smoothie to make it really feel like dessert. the walnut milk sounds incredible, too. i like using flaxseed in my dessert/bready-inspired smoothies for its grainy taste. i used to do a blueberry maple pancake smoothie, too. ahh. i could smoothe for the rest of my life forever. i really want to invest in a high powered blender, too.

    i think i’d want to see something totally decadent like a double chocolate brownie smoothie. it seems challenging because there are so many distinctive elements to the brownie taste — the crunchy caramelization on the corner pieces, the warm, creamy, definitely not raw chocolate flavor, and the slight bitterness from chocolate cut with the richness of fat.

    another dessert i’d totally love to see smoothinated is cheesecake. the tang! oh, the tang. the dense creamy sweetness. oh god! would it be disgusting to put gluten-free graham crackers or pretzels in a smoothie? i think i’d try it.Reply

  • Gloria

    Someone already mentioned some form of Pumpkin Pie. But that would be delectable. If I were to choose a second.. Maybe a Pecan Pie smoothie? Yum.

    Kay bye, gotta go not eat either of those things.Reply

  • Daniela Uribe

    Carrot Cake! Yum!Reply

    TIRAMISU !!! Ofcourse 🙂Reply

  • Emily

    Chocolate peanut butter cheesecake!Reply

  • Kim

    Doubletree Hotel cookies! Chocolate chips, walnuts, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Yum!Reply

  • Missy LeDuc

    A crazy yum shake to me would be an apricot almond with vanilla bean paste and possibly cardamon? Worth a try at least!Reply

  • Kim Henrichs

    I would love a drinkable tiramisu!Reply

  • Marisa

    Vanilla Bean Cheesecake would be a delicious smoothie!Reply

  • Thia

    Hey, Laura.
    Yummy banana bread shake!

    Let’s see…a liquid form of a favorite dessert…
    I’d love to come up with a version of an old Martha Stewart recipe…It’s a honey and pinenut tart, with a shortbread crust. I adore pinenuts!!!

    thanks for the giveaway opportunity…always fun!Reply

  • sarah

    almond joy!Reply

  • Chris

    Pineapple upside down cake!!Reply

    I would say Black Forest Cake, which I already make and is actually one of my favorites smoothies. Other than that, anything else mind-blowingly chocolatey!Reply

  • Rachel B

    Drinkable apple pie, please! My dream!Reply

  • Tricia

    I would love a mint brownie in drinkable form!Reply

    I would love a pistachio burfi smoothie!!Reply

  • tori brannigan

    I would love a shake that taste like those peanutbutter cookies that are shaped like peanuts 🙂Reply

  • Laura Lungstrom

    How about chocolate,pistachio and marzipan–like a Mozart truffle.Reply

  • Christina

    I would love to see strawberry shortcake in a healthy, drinkable form- filled with healthy fats and vitamin C!Reply

  • Trish

    Oh man….. definitely strawberry shortcake. My favorite!
    Fingers crossed!Reply

  • Katie

    Best dessert in drinkable form is Carrot Cake. No question about it. Second may be a pumpkin brownie, or perhaps tiramisu. But Carrot Cake wins hands down!Reply

  • Suzanne Johnson

    Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream flavored smoothie!Reply

  • genevieve @ gratitude & greens

    Banana bread in liquid form sounds like heaven. Can’t wait to make some in my own kitchen! Gorgeous photos, as always!Reply

  • Karolina

    lemon meringue pieReply

    peanut butter cupsReply

  • Ariela

    Tough decision…but, I’d have to go with oatmeal raisin cookies!Reply

  • Clare W

    Nanaimo bar! But how…?Reply

  • Val

    Carrot cake would be delicious!! I’ll definitely be trying this smoothie — banana bread is a fav too.Reply

  • Meghan

    “Anyone that mentions a Vitamix and gender equality in the same breath gets endless high fives from me” may be the best thing I’ve read all year, if not ever. Also, as a long-term daily yogini, I am in LOVE with the Headspace app.

    Anyway, this smoothie looks incredible. I love the addition of walnut milk! And I’m thinking a black forest gâteau smoothie would be pretty sweet.Reply

  • Jan Scholl

    This is so not fair! I don’t like anything sweet!! So I can’t remember the last time I actually ate a dessert. Can we make a carrot cake without the frosting? and without sugar? So maybe just a carrot something. I know, I am pathetic. I don’t even like chocolate.Reply

  • Lee Anne

    Sticky toffee pudding shake oh myyyy! 🙂Reply

  • Emily DeFelice

    Hmmmm it would have to be Eton mess, a concoction of juicy strawberries, cream(this could be the inventive bit, cashew would work)and vegan meringue. Nom nom.Reply

  • Victoria

    Tiramisu sounds good.Reply

  • Susan Morrison

    My very first thought was key lime pie. I’m going to stick with it!Reply

  • Marie-Hélène

    Mmm, this drink looks so good!

    A baklava in a drinkable form would be THE BEST THING EVER I think <3Reply

  • Ayan

    A lemon and lavender scone!Reply

  • Susan Skewes

    Tiramisu in a drinkable smoothie!Reply

    Tiramisu, please! (And can it be vegan?)Reply

    Coffee cake would be great as a smoothie.Reply

    These shakes are glowing!! Insanely gorgeous. Plus this book sounds wonderful. I’d have to say I would love to drink a s’more!! (favorite dessert of all-time)Reply

  • Leigha @ The Yooper Girl

    I want Emily’s book so bad!! This shake sounds amazing. I made something similar this morning, just added a lil’ peanut butter 🙂Reply

  • Kristina N.

    Some of my favorite desserts might seem a bit odd in drinkable form, but the one that immediately came to mind to try is carrot cake!Reply

  • Martine


  • Lauren P.

    Hi 🙂 I would love to see Strawberry Shortcake in juice form. Mmm <3Reply

  • Anise Thorogood

    Dessert for breakfast?! This pregnant lady is in!Reply

  • Natalia M

    Hazelnut chocolate tart!Reply

  • Brian @ Kitchen Domination

    These look tasty, and your post provides a great foundation for creating all kinds of goodness in liquid form. As far as what dessert I’d like to see in drinkable form, I can’t think of anything more appealing than a good peanut butter cookie smoothie. I’m thinking maybe take your recipe, then replace the walnut milk with almond milk and the maple syrup with peanut butter.Reply

  • Sylvie

    key lime pie, or a passion fruit cake!Reply

  • Tori

    I think a Hazelnut Torta. So basically, it would taste like liquid Nutella!Reply

  • Ellen

    Carrot cake forsure!Reply

  • Brianna Pattyn

    My mom made the most fantastic lemon squares and Black Forest cake. I don’t think I could choose one over the other but I would be pleased to have either of those in liquid form!!!Reply

    • Julia Graham

      Oh my gosh Brianna! Either of those would be sooo good in smoothie!! xxReply

  • Elizabeth

    Cherry pie!Reply

  • Alexandra

    Yum! This looks so good. I need to get a better blender. After some thought, I think a lemon vanilla cake in liquid form would be awesome.Reply

  • Trisha

    I’d love a carrot cake, or angel food cake smoothie!Reply

  • Phoebe

    if your salted coconut caramel fudge brownies could be made into a smoothie, and i can pretend it’s all part of this complete breakfast, the world will be a better place.Reply

  • Cindy Karnitz

    My favorite dessert of all time is asian mango sticky rice. That combination of mango, jasmine rice and coconut milk would be amazing …Reply

  • jeanne

    I’m with you on the banana bread, love it!Reply

  • Abby

    Carrot cake might be good, but chocolate chip cookie would be my first option. If any beverage of mine were to taste like a milkshake but also be healthy, I would be happy.Reply

  • Tina

    Not sure what I would do without my vitamix! Would love to have a drinkable sticky toffee pudding 🙂Reply

  • Tamara

    Strawberry rhubarb pieReply

  • Phanie Pack

    God, I love it when I find a new recipe which i have all the ingredients for! Going to soak walnuts overnight and make tomorrow morning for me and my fam!

    What a fantastic book! I can honestly say that a fresh strawberry rhubarb ice cream smoothie would hit the spot right about now. It was a summer special a local ice cream shop Earnest Ice Cream and it was the last time they made it for the season. I’ve been in painful withdrawl ever since.Reply

  • jane

    I think it would be interesting to drink a cherry cheese cake.Yum!!Reply

  • Jess

    Chocolate chip cookies!!!Reply

  • Brian @ A Thought For Food

    Oh my gosh… I just don’t even make NY resolutions anymore. Why put that on myself? I’m not going to listen. Drink less? Eat better? What’s that?

    This is one awesome sounding shake. I love banana bread and could totally see those flavors in a shake. I’d go with the cheesecake smoothie as well. That just sounds so darn good.Reply

  • Lynette

    Lemon meringue pie would be my choice for drinkable dessert. Looking forward to drinking some banana bread soon, the recipe looks great!Reply

  • Melissa

    Baklava would be fabulous!Reply

    Black forest Cake! I make on every year from scratch. Just once. A lot of work. But, how awesome would it be to whip a single serving up in my Vita-mix!


  • Amy

    definitely some sort of raspberry coconut crumble!!Reply

  • Jackie

    I would love to have chocolate mint pie made into a drink! I absolutely love anything that is chocolate with a hint of mint.Reply

  • Isadora

    I never really made any resolutions either. If you don’t make them then you can’t break them, right?! I am now thinking I need to make a resolution to drink more smoothies though, because I don’t drink nearly enough! This banana bread shake sounds like the perfect way for me to start 🙂Reply

  • Teresa

    ooh something like Almond Cake/Marzipan in smoothie form please!!Reply

  • Rachel

    Yum! I will definitely be making this with the cashews I currently have soaking for milk!

    I would love to drink a liquified carrot cake, I love the idea of creamy nut milk with tasty spices.Reply

    Lemon meringue pie! I’m imagining a tart smoothie with a whipped but creamy texture. Like lemons and cream. And an almond streusel on top for some crunch. Spoon vs. straw.Reply

  • Beth R.

    Hmmm…That’s a tough one…Maybe Italian cream wedding cake? Or samoa cookie? Or brownie…Reply

    Pecan pie or gingerbread for sureReply

  • Grace

    Lemon Meringue Pie would be AWEsome as a smoothie!Reply

    If I had to pick one dessert to have in vegan drink form, it would be maple chestnut cake. It’s not super popular, but it tastes like rich, nutty, dense pancakes. Topped with some roasted pears and maple cream, I really can’t control myself.Reply
