The Dos Toros Experience

The Dos Toros Experience

For years, burritos have been a staple lunch food for me. Ever since I started college in 2010 I became attached to the thought of rice, beans, meat, veggies and cheese wrapped in thin doughy-wrap. The mix of these 5 key ingredients is part of what makes the burrito so special. It is also the experience around which we eat a burrito which brings sweet thoughts of the food to mind. I started eating Chipotle with friends while attending Hofstra University. Then it became a place to get a quick bite in NYC, along with the occasional pizza hole in wall. Chipotle still holds a place in my heart as a place where cool ideas for my future endeavors spawned. A friend of mine named Maxx had the fantastic idea of starting a Millenial Startups club while we were eating at a Chipotle, like a support group for Millenials starting their own companies.

Banana Oreo Milkshake + Bonus: Dirty Banana Cafe Allemand Drink Recipe

One morning I was feeling like I wanted make something awesome. You know what is an awesome breakfast beverage? Milkshakes!!! I’ve also included a bonus drink recipe for those interested in a cool milkshake spinoff:  So I made a sweet banana shake: Here is the recipe: Makes 5-6 servings. Ingridients: 3 bananas ( organic and nonorganic ) 2 tsp of maple syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract 4 cups milk Optional: 1-2 scoops of Vanilla Ice cream Directions: Put all ingredients in the blender in this order: bananas, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract With the cap on the blender, blend the ingredients on the puree setting for smooth or mix setting for chunky. Pour into spare glass bottle for storage. It will brown, but flavor is enhanced if it sits for one day. — Next step get a large glass mug and add 2 scoops of your favorite Oreo and Vanilla Ice cream. For this example I used Cookies and Cream by HagenDaz. Then pour roughly 1/4 cup of milk over it. You can eyeball this measure. Mix together those ingredients until you have a milk and ice-cream Oreo piece mix. Next grab your cold banana shake from the fridge and pour roughly 3/4 cup over the top. Mix that with a spoon and there you have it! An awesome Banana Milk Oreo Shake. Add ice if you want it to be colder, or add Kahlua Liqueur, Cacao Liqueur and Amaretto to make a Cafe Allemand Drink.
