Mudder’s Milk Variation (Firefly)

«All the protein, vitamins and carbs of your grandma’s best turkey dinner — plus 15% alcohol.»
Jayne Cobb, The Hero of Canton, in «Firefly»

A while ago I mentioned the «Mudder’s Milk» recipe from «The Geeky Chef Cook Book». In the meantime, I’ve played around with the recipe and arrived at an adapted version:

  • 600 ml Milk
  • 105 g Banana (one)
  • 100 g Greek Yogurt
  • 71 g Ice
  • 50 g Oatmeal
  • 20 g Peanut Butter
  • 8 g Honey
  • 3 g Calcium
  • 3 g Magnesia
  • 2 g Multivitamin
  • 1 g Chili Powder
  • 0,2 g Caffeine

The whole drink contains about 907,26 kcal and together with the caffeine — let’s just say it makes for one a very unhealthy energy drink. So I don’t recommend it.

Given the vitamins (come from pills), even mixing it looks … not very healthy (one of the first trials, later I added the ice directly to the flask after mixing the other ingredients):

For me personally though — it’s nice to have a liquid meal you can drink during the workday. Keeps until about 4 pm (you can’t really take more than a sip or two). And then there’s the charm of decorating the thermos (after all, the drink does contain ice):

So, yeah, perhaps practical but so not recommended.
