We started to cook all kinds of dishes early on – drinks were seldom included. In the Japanese cookbook “The Japan Cookbook: Pictures, Stories, Recipes” we came across something very simple that piqued our interest: pea milk shake. We thought that maybe it was similar to having nut chips in chocolate and that it could give the drink a kind of “crunch”. So we quickly carried out the simple recipe and the result was…

Awful! Or rather, how can you make something as simple as a banana and milk shake worse? With every sip of the drink you could feel the split pea pods in your mouth and throat, which was just disgusting and uncomfortable. Our conclusion at the end of the day was simply: The Pea-(Banana)-Milk-Shake would have tasted quite good in and of itself, had it not been for the peas.
