A Snack for Your Next Epic Adventure: Hero Milk (aka Banana-Cashew Smoothie)

Fresh out of monkey skulls, the islanders sip their hero milk from the shell of a rare species of coconut which has been dried for exactly 17 days. The elusive gold-finned pyramid fish lurks out in the distance.

Did you ever find yourself canoeing rough seas amongst a horde of hungry sharks in search of gold-finned pyramidfish? Then you’ll certainly need this recipe for “Hero Milk”. Sometimes it’s the backstory that makes the dish, but in this case it’s also a healthy and super delicious snack — even for days when you’re not climbing a volcano.

By the way…. experts say “one skull-full fuels three days of heavy paddling”. Good to know.

Hero Milk

Blend the following:

  • 1 Frozen Banana (if you don’t have time to fell a banana tree and drag it up the snowy peak of a volcano, your freezer will do)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Spoon Flaked Coconut
  • 2 Pitted Dates
  • 1 Spoon Honey
  • A Handful of Salted Cashews
  • A Thimbleful of Vanilla Extract

Islanders bring bananas up the snowy peaks of the volcano using funicular carts. Down below, they guard their lava rock mortar and pestle.

  1. You wouldn’t even need the milk in that as it would be delicious with the cashews alone. I would add 1/2 cup water instead of the milk. Have you tried using minute oats to thicken and add body to smoothies? Cheers for this post :)
