Goals for this Recipe
- Cheapness (low cost) (< $3/day goal.. still a work in progress)
- Completeness (fulfill nutritional profile)
- Vegan-ness (uh.. vegan)
- Edible-ness (Should be consumable)
- Drinkable-ness (End result should be a drink)
- (somewhat required) Easiness (Should be relatively simple to put together)
- So made my first batch today. The first thought that comes to mind when I look at it: "chocolate shake". The second thought occurs after tasting it: "Nasty... in a bad way." Also, "Did I really just drop $200 to make this?". It tastes pretty doughy - like I've just diluted flour with water (which is pretty much what it is) and added a little cocoa in there for fun. I thought 65g of brown sugar would be a lot, but there's only the tiniest hint of any sweetness. Definitely gonna need some tweaking. Will also need to not do an entire day's worth in one blender go.
Ordered all the amazon ingredients besides the soy lecithin. Also getting a scale and mason jars (I've always wanted my own set). Generally following kennufs' notes and tips.
Looking into Sunflower Lecithin as the primary choline source. There seems to be a lot of secondary sources/blog posts regarding soy lecithin's health concerns, so I may try to avoid it. I've emailed Swanson inquiring whether it is suitable for vegans as well as for the choline content in it.
Changed the cocoa source to Hershey's, since it appeared to be cheaper than the original version. For the most part, stuck with this source for nutrition info.
