Flavoured milks

Flavoured milks
Flavoured cow’s or non-dairy milks are a wonderful way to fortify your diet, providing protein and carbohydrates, plus vitamins and minerals from the fruit. Sipping a small glass can help to ‘wake up’ the appetite. And because milkshakes are thinner than smoothies, they slip down easily.

Serves 1
Preparation Time: 5 minutes


300ml cow’s or non-dairy milk

For coconut milk
Use coconut milk for this recipe
20g dessicated coconut
2 tbsp natural yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla essence

For banana milk
½ banana
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp prune juice

For peach & passionfruit milk
½ banana
½ skinned peach
seeds from 1 passionfruit

For berry milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp ground almonds
handful mixed berries
1 tbsp ground seeds

For mango milk
½ mango
½ tsp ground cinnamon


Whisk the ingredients together with the milk and serve.

These are great served with DIY Muesli.

Turn these flavoured milks into smoothies by adding extra banana, natural yoghurt, homemade ice cream or sorbet.
