Breakfast "Milk" Shake

Before we learned that we'd need to avoid peanuts, the boys used to enjoy a yummy dairy-free milkshake made with peanut butter, honey and rice milk for breakfast, especially on days when they needed a little extra protein boost, like before Field Day!  Today we took a chance and made our favorite shake with SunButter instead -- it's just like peanut butter, but made with sunflower seeds (you should be able to find it in your local supermarket).  Wow!  The additional saltiness of the SunButter elevated this shake into the stratosphere.  The combination of the sweet honey and the salty seed butter turned this simple drink into one of our newest cravings!

Breakfast "Milk" Shake

1 cup SunButter (peanut butter substitute from sunflower seeds)
1/2 cup honey
2 cups rice milk

Blend thoroughly in your blender and serve immediately (this will separate after a while).  Makes three 4-oz juice glasses full.  It's very thick, so you don't need much!  If the sunflower seed flavor is too strong for you, feel free to thin the drink with more milk.
