Two months ago I had the opportunity to give a healthy food workshop to the kiddies at Mano Amiga Pilipinas (secretly vegan) and they absolutely loved the milkshake I had prepared for them for their dessert. Little did they know that said milkshake was actually chock-full of of good stuff. Not only was it naturally sweetened with fruit, it had wholesome, plant-based protein to boot. You don’t need dairy milk to make a decent milkshake and we all know we don’t dairy products period
This milkshake is so wholesome, you can have it for breakfast, feed it to your kids, and not feel guilty at all. Below I give you the basic recipe (which is what the Mano Amiga kids drank up with gusto) with wildcard ingredients to boost its super powers.
A breakfast worthy milkshake

About a month ago my good friend Lynn Pinugu invited me to share my vegetable love with the kids of Mano Amiga, a school that she runs in FTI Complex, Taguig. I had the privilege of doing just this two Saturdays ago on the 23rd of July.
To be honest, that Saturday was a pretty hectic day for me and an end to a pretty hectic week. That morning I held the Fantastic Salads class and immediately rushed to Taguig for Mano Amiga. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to teach kids how to enjoy vegetables! And boy was I glad I did. Nothing warms my heart more than to see a room full of kids eating healthy, vegetarian food (hanging out with cute farm animals comes as a close second).
