Shake Things Up
One of the things Jane and I still crave is cow’s milk. I have a smoothie for breakfast every morning. Jane makes almond milk, and that works just fine. It’s also an effective substitute in baked goods and for general cooking, but cereal just isn’t the same. And Jane would just about kill for a shake (bad choice of wording?), so when we go to Johnny Rockets this weekend for our free vegan burger, she’s going to whine, and I will be as supportive as I can be.
So I’m doing my research in advance, and tonight I came across a post at “Go Dairy Free” that provides a list of dairy-free and vegan recipes for Mother’s Day. The recipe that caught my eye is their Ultra Thick Chocolate Shake. In the olden (pre-vegan) days, Jane would have normally ordered a strawberry shake, but we find the chocolate dairy substitutes to be the most palatable. So, maybe I’ll make that choclate shake ahead of time and take it along in a thermos. This way Jane can have a shake with her burger and we’ll all be happier.
