“Luke! Luke! Come inside and have some blue milk.” The obvious was pointed out in Seth MacFarlane’s “Blue Harvest”, and we all laughed. Star Wars broke through so many creative barriers, even thought went into what type and color the milk would be. While Bantha Milk isn’t native to Earth, you can still have fun making a tasty treat an using your ***imaaaagination***.
The basic idea would be to use blue food coloring in regular milk (2 drops per roughly 1 cup of milk turned a decent result). There’s a recipe out in the cyber world that calls for Soy Milk and Blue Powder Punch mix, however, the local corner ethnic store didn’t have a wild collection of Kool-Aid, let alone blue punch mix.
The Soy Milk added an interesting nutty taste, however, it didn’t go great with the fruitiness. The regular milk provided more of a Berry-creamsicle flavor.
With summer rapidly approaching, here’s a new spin on the Blue Milk idea. It is a chilled, tasty treat for those hot Tatooine-esque summer days.
Blue Milk Popsicles
2 Cups Cold Milk
3 Tablespoons Blue Jell-O
Mix the milk and Jell-O together in a bowl with a whisk. DO NOT HEAT. Make sure well combined. Pour into the popsicle molds and chill until solid. Remove and enjoy!
***If you’re a fan of the blue milk mustache, you can drink this cold, in a non-frozen version. The Jell-O will set slightly to give a thicker, milkshake-esque texture, and is just as tasty.
Bohemian Rhapsody… just reading the words probably stir some kind of response inside you. Whether you love the song, or hate it, you’ve probably come across hundreds of versions of the Queen hit. Heck, even the Muppets have covered it.
If you’re one of the many people that blasts this song when you’re in the car, whether alone or with the company of others, or starts “head-banging” at that perfect moment, you’ll enjoy the video below.
It’s performed by Richie Castellano, guitar and keyboardist from Blue Oyster Cult. He covered every aspect of making this video, from the singing, the instruments, the recording, and the editing. One heck of a job, and even slightly stylized it in the Queen fashion. Love the Wonder Woman figurine watching over the keyboard.
