No, not a new video, sorry to get your hopes up. Just a 2 year old video of me making “The Dream Shake”.
However, I will share the new Dream Shake of 2011 today, which as you might have guessed, is insanely awesome and far improved.
TDS 2011 typically consists of,
- Raw grass fed whole milk
- Raw grass fed half and half
- Coconut milk
- Virgin coconut oil
- Almond butter
- Saigon cinnamon (delicious!)
- 1 raw egg yolk
- 1-2 scoops of grass fed whey protein
- 1 banana
- frozen berries (blue, straw, ras)
- full fat yogurt
- various rock and sea salts
- raw unfiltered honey
They whey flavor varies from vanilla to strawberry to chocolate. I find vanilla easiest to mess around with where as strawberry and chocolate are more intense. I typically do not add more than 1 type of fruit to the mix. The rest of the ingredients are pretty standard for my shakes however and are always included (unless I forget or run out).
For clarification purposes, yes, when I say half and half as an ingredient, I mean making the entire shake with half and half as a base. Combined with the other ingredients, this makes The Dream Shake almost a “fat” shake, Free the Animal style, more than a protein shake.
Also interesting to note, if I mix in too much raw grass fed heavy cream with raw grass fed milk, the shake tends to “fluff” to an ice cream like consistency and is insanely delicious. More interesting to note that this marvelous phenomenon only happens with the raw stuff, never the ultra pasteurized fucking garbage available at local grocery stores like Wal-Mart.
Further clarifying, I discard the raw egg white because it screws digestion up so far as I am aware. The yolk however is delicious and adds texture (although with abundant raw cream in the shake in some cases, this becomes hard to even detect, but is noticeable when only using milk).
Further adding, I typically eat dark chocolate with my shakes, take cod liver oil, and 6,000 IU of Vitamin D3, and as of recently, 50mg of zinc (most days of the week). I would happily add cocoa powder to my shakes if I were inspired to obtain some in the first place. Adding dark chocolate pieces to the shake is kinda dumb though because it all sinks to the bottom.
My blender broke the other day, but for the weeks leading up to that, I was having a Dream Shake almost daily. I will continue to do so once I fix it or get a new one. I do not consider it a food supplement. It’s simply food. A complete meal. If I make it large enough it’s more calories in a single drink than most people eat in a day.
Sadly, it packs more actual nutrition than most people eat in a given week.
