We've become slightly addicted to banana milk shakes (minus the cows milk) this spring. It's become a mourning thing that, thanks to a slightly unorthodox secret ingredient, keeps me energized much of the day. It's also super quick to whip up for friends... keep reading for another recent discovery, pretty glass straws and:


Blending up a banana milk shake with a secret ingredient

This just happens to be another one of those vintage recipes found in an obscure country cookbook that ended up tasting amazing. All thanks to, of all things, molasses. You wouldn't think so but the molasses takes on a chocolaty flavor when blended with sweetly ripe bananas. It actually makes a great substitute to chocolate syrup although here, I'm going half and half with some organic raw chocolate sauce from Emmy's. The molasses used here is classic Brer Rabbit.

Thanks to the compo of the two plus the bananas and almond milk, you're looking at a densely packed, nutrient rich shake that, for us girls, can also help reduce cramping thanks in large part to the iron, calcium, magnesium and B vitamins in molasses.

Something else I recently stumbled on are these glass straws by The-LUX-U-WANT. If you had a periscope tuned in on my office desk you'd see the curious sight of a straw sticking out of hot steaming tea. I drink everything with a straw and it was awesome finding glass one that can be used in both hot and cold drinks. Plus these were the only ones I've ever seen with tiny orbs that act as drink tags. Definitely gift worthy as is. Find 'em over here.
