Elizabeth Taylor’s Protein Drink

Well, this was weird.  I think if I had made this before my experiments with the Peter Fonda’s “Easy Rider Smoothie”

and his sister Jane Fonda’s Smoothie

I might have thought this was groovy.  BUT, I am now used to protein drinks that effectively are the texture and volume of a huge McDonald’s milkshake.

Liz’s protein drink was very thin, and only half the amount of the greedy guts BIG BREAKFAST SLURPS I am used to thanks to Jane and Peter.

The recipe is in Elizabeth’s brilliant book, Elizabeth Takes Off.  Look how little her drinkie is!

and although there wasn’t much of it, I did like the malty taste and I think I will experiment sometime with boosting Liz’s recipe up with a frozen banana.  Will report back.

Liz said she often replaced a meal with one of these when she was on set.  Cheers Liz!

    Liz also said “Fill the rest of the glass with Bourbon!” It’s missing an ingredient! Perhaps THAT’S why the “shake” in your pint glass looks like it should have been served in a rocks glass…

    Haha – you are quite right Greg. I must admit, if there was a choice between Liz’s Protein Drink and her Giant Martini I would go with the latter every time!
