strawberry milkshake!

yesterday I was making a veggie juice - a typical one for me, carrot/spinach/celery. but because I wanted some pulp for some buckwheat bread I was making, I added a few more carrots in than I usually would, and a sweet potato. Then, while I was drinking it I realised, it tasted just like strawberry milkshake!! I figured the key ingredient must be the sweet potato, cos this was the only thing I don't usually put in.
So today I tried again, this time just using carrots and sweet potato, and adding a pear to the mix. It tasted even better! I didn't have any strawberries, but I'm guessing their addition would only add to the authenticity of the recipe grinning smiley

try it and let me know if you agree! smiling smiley

I think its really neat when a drink comes out tasting like something it doesnt even contain!
I make an "egg nog" out of cantaloupe,lecithin granules,nutmeg,and cinnamon,and it tastes exactly like a milk egg nog.
Try it.

sweet potato! never thought of that before... will have to try it grinning smiley

the first time I tried a galia melon smoothie, it made me think of McDonalds banana thickshakes. When I tried one with added banana, it tasted less like those shakes!

It's funny, because it's specifically the galia melon, not the honeydew that makes my tastebuds react that way!

When I want a 'milk shake' I just juice a ripe cantaloupe. It foams up and tastes almost exactly like a vanilla milkshake. I guess if I added a touch of vanilla it would really be fabulous.

ooh yeah I'd forgotten how good melon smoothies were with a touch of vanilla! yum!

Vinny, that sounds gorgeous, I've never used lecithin though, I'll have to check it out smiling smiley I wonder if sharon fruit could also add that kind of texture?

juiced sweet potato? sounds like a digestive nightmare!

I'm glad it tastes good, though.

My strawberry milkshakes are just bananas and strawberries blended. No water. My favorite way to eat bananas.

My blue/purple potatoes have some of the same nutritional qualities as blueberries and I'll sometimes add one to carrot juice. Now if I could only figure out how to get them to taste like blueberries...

powerlifer - well, I don't really go by a recipe, (I never bother to measure anything, lol) I just sprout some buckwheat, mix it with some soaked flax, some pulp (eg carrot, sweet potato), a little oil, and seasoning, and dehydrate.

or you could try this, looks a good recipe

Utopian - I think you'd have to have a very weak digestive system if you had trouble digesting sweet potato juice..

Prana,

I tried your strawberry and banana mixture, but I won't eat non-organic strawberries, so I used the frozen, organic Cascadian Farms strawberries! It was just like a creamy whip ice cream! Yum, it was delicious. I plan on making it again tonight. It is amazing! Thanks for posting that!
