Week 29, Bonus recipe: Licuado de leche y fruta

For you non-Spanish speakers (like myself... LOL), that's a fruit & milk smoothie...
Recipe courtesy of Rick Bayless
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 to 1½ tablespoons sugar, plus more if necessary
  • 3 to 5 ounces (½ to ¾ cup) fruit (banana, cantaloupe, mango, persimmon, papaya, strawberry, watermelon or guava), peeled, hulled, seeded and/or cored, as necessary, and cut into small cubes
1. Blending: Combine all the ingredients in a blender jar and blend until very smooth.
2. Straining: If there are seeds, skins or stringy fibers, strain through a medium-mesh sieve, taste for sweetness and serve in tall glasses.

Results: I used fresh mango and subbed agave syrup for the sugar and it was quite delicious!  I did wish I'd saved a piece of mango for garnish, though.

Now this right here sounds super yummy! I think it would be a hit with drinkers too with a little alchol added!
