Monday Morning Milkshake


Having the privilege to travel around and experience foods from so many different ecosystems, I’ve come to appreciate the ways in which recipes can be maintained with a bit of adaptation. Callaloo can be substituted for Spinach. Breadfruit can be substituted for Potatoes. Turnip Greens can be substituted for Mustard Greens. This recipe is no different. This is a Papaya Milkshake because that is what I happened to have available. But an equally delicious Milkshake could be made with Peaches or Mango. Additionally, Lemons, Limes and Sour Oranges can be used interchangeably. They’re all a bit different so the flavor will vary, but the sensibility will remain the same.

2 C Papaya, Mango or Peach

1/2 C Cashews – soaked overnight

Juice of 1 Lime, Lemon or Sour Orange

1 TBSP Maple Syrup

1/2 tsp Cardamom

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Blend ingredients until smooth and creamy. Add ice to achieve desired temperature and texture. Enjoy!
