Egg Nog

 

Another treat for an all liquid diet – this one hails from my good friend, Barb, who, along with her husband care for great cows which produce awesome milk from their nearly 100% grassfed diet.

1 quart milk (real, if possible)

4 egg yolks

1/3 cup sugar or 1/4 cup real honey

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp vanilla

Heat milk to 160 degrees (about steaming)over medium heat.  Add one cup hot milk to egg yolks, then blend into the remaining milk.  Remain vigilant and/or whisk often to keep it from sticking and burning to the bottom of the pot.  Add sugar (or honey) and spices, then reheat.  This is great warm or cold.

As always, use organic, fresh, local whenever possible.

Jerry really likes this and it’s packed with calories and fat, which is important for him right now.  He warms up a cup of eggnog if he has trouble falling asleep or for brekkie in the morning with his softened cereal.

Warm Banana Milk Drink

A friend from Manitoba, Canada posted a link on facebook to a recipe that gave me the idea of combining two of my father-in-law’s favourite foods; bananas and milk, and so i tried.  He LOVED it!

2 cups of milk

1 banana (unmashed)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Bring the milk and banana to just past warm – don’t really want it to boil or it gets a funny sour taste.  Some don’t mind that though. Put a lid on the pot and let it heat through and simmer 10-15 minutes.  Remove the banana or pour through a sieve or cheesecloth into heat proof jar like a canning jar.  Add the cinnamon powder, but don’t shake a jar with hot liquid, it’ll spew out from under the cap.  Stir the cinnamon in when you are ready to enjoy.

Remember, i use canning jars with screw on one-piece lids to make the transport of broth, soups, and drinks easier.

This is another of the liquid diet recipes for helping my father-in-law heal from surgery, so use all organic ingredients (even if the banana comes from Colombia) including raw milk from your neighbour’s grassfed dairy.

Enjoy!

Israeli Salad in a Smoothie!

Official way of making Israeli Salad - for the smoothie, just chop in large pieces and whir together.
Official way of making Israeli Salad – for the smoothie, just chop in large pieces and whir together.

Got lazy this afternoon and thought i’d try making a smoothie of my Israeli salad ingredients rather than chopping them.  Use fresh organically grown when you can, bring veggies to room temperature for best flavour!

Here’s the recipe:

1 medium home grown cucumber

1/2 vine ripened tomato

1/2 medium sized green pepper (or red, or yellow, or orange)

1 tablespoon dried parsley.

1/2 tsp olive oil

1 tsp Real Salt

pinch of cinnamon

Now, my smoothie maker isn’t real strong, so i put in about half the cucumber, then all of the tomato and whirred that until smooth, then added the rest as it made room.  Oh, made about a pint of drinkable veggie smoothie.  Now to be real Israeli Salad, you’d need to add a bit onion as well.  I’ll do that next time.

Shabbat Shalom!
