Awesome rice milk fruit shake

Before I introduce to you rice milk as a perfect substitute for regular milk in shakes, let me brag about me being featured as a pinner of the week on Pin-n-Tel! This great site is all about Pinterest. You can click here to check it out :).

And now coming back to this delicious rice milk shake. For a while now I’m trying to cut our animal products consumption habits. No, I’m not trying to become vegetarian. As much as I would like to be one, I just can’t. When I was a university student I tried to stop eating meat completely, and guess what? After 10 months I was dreaming about it, and then once I was hiding in my grandmas kitchen and eating some meat stew right from the pot. So that got me thinking 🙂 so I’ve just stopped trying. I figured my body obviously needs meat protein. But I’m still very empathic toward the life of animals, and I think that the way we produce meat became inhumane. And I believe that for the sake of greener living we should eat less meat and dairy products. So I’m introducing different kinds of milk to my family. Me and my daughter we love soya milk. My hubby is a fan of almond milk. And we just discovered that rice milk is perfect for shakes!


1 ripe banana

Iced banana & coffee shake

I love coffee. Espresso, cappuccino, latte, filter, all of it. And this banana and coffee shake is my go to option for one of these hot summer afternoons when I feel like treating myself on to something special. It’s a great alternative to a regular iced coffe, and you can do it with cold milk, or ice cream. Of course the ice cream option is the best :).

Ripe banana
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1 cup of freshly brewed coffee

Another summer day, another way to enjoy seasonal fruits.I guess every one likes smoothies, and there is so many ways of doing them: with ice cream, milk, yogurt, just fruits, with added sugar.. Well my today’s version is actually on the super healthy side.But still so yummy and refreshing !

Blueberries
Strawberries
Raspberries
Organic natural yogurt
Milk
Maple syrup

I made it for two, so I had about a 1/4 of a cup of each fruit, plus 3 spoons of yogurt, and one of milk.Use as much maple syrup as you feel works best for you. Don’t worry, it hes some good micro-elements 🙂
