Vegan MoFo 4: Some Days Are Hard ...

... and the only thing suitable for eating is a shake.

It's been a rough few days for us here, since we lost someone we love. For the record, I had pre-written my other blog posts, so the tone was different. This one, however, was written in part to distract myself from the fact that my home has a new emptiness that we all can feel.

Here's my recipe:

Sorrow-Drowning Shake
-1 cup So Delicious Mocha Almond Coconut Fudge Ice Cream
-1 cup coffee
-1 cup bourbon

Combine, blend, and remember the good times, preferably while sitting by a rainy window.

You might not want to drink the whole thing at once. After half, I was pretty toasty for a few hours.

If you want to pretend to be healthy, you could toss a handful of cacao nibs in it. It seems like that's a thing people do. I made no such pretensions. Peanut butter would probably be pretty good too. If the hangover from this isn't too bad, I'll give it a try.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your loss. It can be devastating. The bourbon should warm the empty home.

  2. We've just started getting coconut based icecream in the UK. Great idea for a shake. I'm really sorry to hear about your cat. It sounds like you gave her a lovely life. Hope you're ok.

    1. It really seems superior to the soy ones to me! I'm glad you're getting it.

      Thank you, I take a lot of comfort in thinking that she was happy here with us.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss :( Loss of a dear animal baby is so hard. Sounds like this hit the spot.

  4. So sorry to hear of your grief, but this looks like a wonderful and delicious way to cope! Sending warm fuzzies.
