Tahini & Raspberry Power Breakfast Shake

After taking September off from the Secret Recipe Club while we ate our way across the US, I’m back with a bang and excited to explore all the lovely creations that appear each month.

My SRC assignment for October was Baking and Creating with Avril and as usual I was spoilt for choice.

Tahini & Raspberry Power Breakfast Shake

I took to her side-bar tags for inspiration and the first thing to catch my eye was a Pumpkin Swirl Bread, however as I’ve been a bit heavy handed with the pumpkin lately I figured I’d simply bookmark it for later.

Her Stuffed Tomatoes were also tempting — and may well show up with a vegetarian twist once summer produce kicks in — but there was no resisting an easy breakfast shake.

My fondness for alternatives to PB&J is well documented so it only made sense to use one of my favourite combos and turn it into a creamy milkshake.

A bit of fruit, some protein and a fancy decoration on the glass made for the perfect post-yoga-followed-by-a-run-I-must-be-crazy breakfast. Yummmm or ohmmmmm or ouchhhhhh as the case may be.

For those keeping score, yes, we totally own a milkshake maker. It was a wedding gift many moons ago and while it isn’t used nearly as much any more — due to a healthy immersion blender obsession — I do love it so.

    This is a wonderful idea! I just bought a giant bottle of tahini and am now looking for more ways to use it. This shake is a stunner too.
