Author Notes: Looking for a milkshake that is on the healthy side and less sweet, I came up with this recipe today. I actually had it for breakfast, but I think it would be especially refreshing in the afternoon. It is simple and very easy. —Sagegreen
cup chilled buttermilk
teaspoons unsweetened premium Dutch cocoa powder
teaspoon rose water
tablespoon acacia honey (this can be a heaping tablespoon)
sweet red cherries, pitted
sprinkle of freshly ground nutmeg
very light dusting of cocoa powder
sprig of mint
- Pour the buttermilk into a blender.
- Pit the cherries over the blender, catching any excess juice.
- Add all the remaining ingredients to the blender (excepting the garnishes) and process.
- Pour and garnish.
