Mudder's Milk

From the Firefly television series 


I really love Joss Whedon and almost everything he's done. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my favorite television series as a very young teenager, and still holds a very special place in my heart. Joss has gone on to create a lot more shows and movies, all with their own dedicated fans and beloved characters. Firefly/Serenity was Joss's very short-lived delve into science fiction, and it was glorious. In the series, the alcoholic beverage known as "Mudder's Milk" was used on a remote planet called Higgin's Moon to simultaneously feed the laborers (or "Mudders" as mud was the planet's only export) and keep them submissive. It has, according to planetary legend Jayne, "all the protein, vitamins and carbs of your grandma's best turkey dinner, plus 15% alcohol." From this description, I instantly imagined a sort of alcoholic protein shake. This recipe is not going to be everyone's cuppa, obviously, but that's sort of how it is supposed to be. The drink is super filling, and I think it tastes pretty rutting good myself. It would be a great meal replacement for one of those days.


Ingredients

2-3 Shots of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey

1/2 Cup Milk

1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt

1 Banana

2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter

1/4 Cup Oatmeal

Honey to taste

Cinnamon to taste

  2. I always imagined Mudders' Milk as something that was much less healthy. I like your take on it though!

    1. Thank you! I figured, they probably don't want to be killing off their laborers. Also, it does say there's vitamins!

    2. Probably closer to Soylent, with the alcohol content provided by vodka or grain alcohol: http: //en. wikipedia. org /wiki/ Soylent_ %28food_ substitute%29

      I wager it would taste like rubbing alcohol and paper machet paste with a metallic tang.

  5. I'm assuming that any kind of honey whiskey would work (I have Drambuie in my liquor cabinet currently) but I'm going to get some bananas tomorrow and definitely try this. Looks amazing!

    1. I don't see why any other honey whiskey wouldn't work. Hope you like it!

  6. Hmmm..i almost wonder what this would be like with protein powder added to it! Could chocolate it up!

  7. Would you just omit the Jack Daniels if you want to make it virgin? Or is there something that would be substituted? It looks like it would taste SO good!

    1. Yeah, I would just not include the alcohol. I actually did a test run nix whisky and it was still really good.

    2. I nixed it due to my epilepsy and added a couple tablespoons honey for the sweetness and it was shiny!

  8. What would you recommend using as a substitute for peanut butter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any nut butter would probably work, like almond or hazelnut. Hmm, maybe Nutella?!

      Delete
    2. No dice, also allergic to hazelnuts and almonds.

      Delete
    3. Perhaps tahina/tahini? Unless you're allergic to sesame seeds of course.

      Delete
    4. I have a nut allergy too, but not a seed allergy.

Now go out there and plz do it(my techie showed a bit) !

  11. How much ice does this need?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's sorta personal preference, and ice cube sizes vary.... I used enough so the liquid covered the ice completely by a couple inches.

      Delete
  12. Ice is wrong. Dark rum and not whiskey. No yogurt. No honey. Remember that the drink is supposed an acquired taste and not just an alcoholic smoothie. So stir it by hand and put more alcohol in it! Be men not fanboys

  13. this is pretty much what my grandparents used to drink every morning for breakfast! (minus the whiskey) i've been reminiscing pretty hard lately so i might just have to make this in their honor :'-)

  17. When I saw that episode I thought that this looks to be a variation of an old Scottish dessert, called Atholl Brose. There are several variations on it, some only changing by method of preparation. Sometimes is also will have Currents re-hydrated with whiskey. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atholl_brose

  18. Hey Chef, Have you thought about a recipe if you actually wanted to try to ferment from scratch a batch of Mudder's Milk?

    I'm a mead maker and I've got empty fermenter's calling to me. With honey in the list, it becomes a mead in my mind. : )

  19. Ugh and my blender JUST broke.
    I cannot wait to get a chance to try this :3
