Raw Banoffee MylkShake and Raw Cherry Mylkshake

CHerry Shake

Windy City Organics was kind enough to send me some of their Dastony nut butter to try, one of which was a brazil nut butter.  I love brazil nut butter because it is neutral and makes awesome nut mylk. All you need to do is whisk some of it into filtered water, I like to do 1 1/2 Tbsp per cup of water. Or, if I want it richer, then two.  So my first thought was to whip some of that nut mylk up, then make some delicious shakes out of it!  Because it is summer and vegan mylk shakes are in season!

I am a huge fan of banana cream pie, but even more so of banoffee pie!  You know, that pie that has a coffee cream, bananas and caramel? If you don't then you are missing out, if you do, then this shake recipe may make you happy.  I have made lots of banoffee desserts such as banoffee pie ice cream, banoffee cheesecake, and banoffee bars. So, it was about time I made a banoffee pie shake too.  The brazil nut mylk was perfect in this shake, both in the caramel I made, and the mylk I added to it.  Allowing the flavor of the bananas and caramel to shine.

The next shake recipe I made, was a simple cherry milkshake.  I had lots of ripe cherries on hand, and I could not think of anything more lovely and refreshing to use them in at the time. The brazil nut mylk was a perfect addition too!  Keeping it simple.  I shared some with my Mom and she loved it, and couldn't believe how good it was for being vegan and sugar free.

I hope you all enjoy these two recipes, and definitely check out the Raw Dastony Brazil Nut Butter and all of their other butters.  They are amazingly smooth, and they make wonderful sauces and dressings besides nut mylk.
