Kayak Coffee

Inspired by Bulletproof Coffee, lactose intolerance, nutritional needs while kayaking, and the fact that peanuts taste good with coffee, here is the recipe for Kayak Coffee:
Kayak coffee
  • Rinse the filter paper with boiling water
  • Use the water to pre-heat a blender and a 0.5 l vacuum flask
  • Brew strong coffee from 500g water and 45g coffee (15s on my Bodum grinder) into the blender
  • Add 25g black syrup
  • Add 25g peanut butter
  • Blend it thoroughly
  • Pour into the vacuum flask
  • Go kayaking
  • Take a break
  • Shake the vacuum flask
  • Serve
  • Enjoy
The peanut butter in my initial test contained 0.7% salt. That didn't seem to matter, we probably got more than that from the salty ocean environment.

Maybe the syrup and nuts dosage can be increased. But if your are not enjoying a break from physical activity, drop the syrup.

Optional: If all guest tolerate lactose, add two teaspoons of whey protein powder.

Safety warning: When blending hot liquids, the air in the blender will expand violently. Maybe I should drop the messy blender, and just shake the vacuum flask violently.

Er skummet melk sunt?

En liter skummet melk inneholder 1400 kJ.

Den samme mengden energi får man fra 560 g helmelk, 359 g ymer(hvíta) eller 543 g skyr.

Så dosen med skummet melk inneholder nesten dobbelt så mye sukker som det nest søteste alternativet: Helmelk

g g fett g protein g sukker
skummet melk 1000 1 33 46
helmelk 560 17 18 26
ymer/hvíta 359 14 27 14
skyr 543 1 60 20

Sammenligning per liter gir et annet resultat. Men hverken melk, jus eller øl skal drikkes som tørste­slukkere.
