Extra Special Drinks
banana shake (for 1)
Peel and freeze a ripe banana, then chop it into fairly small pieces and blend with a cup of milk and a dash of vanilla essence. Sweeten with honey or natural stevia if desired.
chocolate milk (for 1)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup carob powder
- 1 tbsp honey or natural stevia to taste
- Vanilla essence
- Whipped cream and finely ground pecans if desired.
We use goat’s milk but raw cow’s milk is good – if you can get it – or sheep’s milk or buffalo milk. Sheep’s milk makes wonderful drinks and desserts, and it usually comes in a convenient powder.
Mix a little of the milk and the carob into a paste and put it in the blender with the rest of the milk, the vanilla essence and the honey or stevia. Blend well and pour into a glass. Top with a little whipped cream and finely ground pecans if desired.
golden smoothie (for 2)
- 2 oranges
- 2 peaches
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- A little honey or natural stevia if desired
Peel the oranges and remove the pips. Homogenize in the food processor with the peaches and banana. Add the orange bitters or vanilla, the honey (or stevia) and the nutmeg. Combine well. Pour into two tall glasses with crushed ice and serve.
