Plus I got to try out my new milkshake glass from Fish n Eddy’s- super awesome/overwhelming dish store. This turned out soooo good and the walnut crumble on top made it of course. Lately I prefer something a bit crunchy in my shakes and I find it makes me feel more satisfied and not like I only had a drink for a meal. I also made a flax/carrot 1 minute muffin based from HEAB’s recipe (linked on previous Molten post).
How cute is that? Just looks silly to me with its carrot top crumble
I did everything the same but I added 1/4 cup pureed carrots. Then I took about half of it and crumbled it into my shake making a super-carroty-omega milkshake. Adding guar gum helps make it slightly thicker but you could always use some canned coconut milk. I was just too lazy to open the can 🙂
1.5 cup milk- I used almond milk
1-2 tsp guar gum, start with less and add as needed
1.5 cup carrots (I like it reallly carroty)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 ice cubes (or more is preferred)
*optional- for even more sweetness and thickness add a frozen super ripe banana
Blend everything and pour in a pretty glass!
1/8 cup walnuts (toasted is best)
1/8 cup carrots
1/8 cup golden raisins/dates
Puree or chop everything and add to shake. YUM!
-if you want to be super crunchy don’t add carrots and only use walnuts and raisin
