“This is a delicious, weight-adding and nutritious drink. It tastes like the old-fashioned thick malted we used to get in the corner candy store.” – Thanks to Marion G. for this.
- 1 medium ripe banana, cut in chunks
- 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame butter)
- about 3/4 cup water (preferably distilled)
- Opt.: few dashes nutmeg
Put banana, tahini, and water in a blender. Blend for about a minute. (Add less water for a thicker shake.) Chill in fridge, if desired. (Note: ripe peeled bananas keep very well in a plastic bag in the freezer and make instantly chilled smoothies.) Pour into a tall glass. If desired, sprinkle a few dashes nutmeg on top. Add a straw, along with some 1940’s -“60’s music and enjoy!
Variations: Add a spoonful of cacao nibs or carob powder to the mix for a “chocolate” malt. Or, 2 teaspoons black cherry or pomegranate concentrate, if youre in a more fruity mood.
