I made a Plum Milkshake with some licorice. Even though I have stuck a licorice stick in my foamy milkshake, I have to admit I used powdered licorice known as salmiak. Although I got the sweet salty salmiak - licorice powder from Bruge, Belgium. Its a very popular ingredient in the Scandanavian region. I had forgot that I had a little tub of sweet and salty salmiak, it was only whilst I was rummaging in my kitchen cupboards for something else that I stumbled upon it.
This frothy Plum and Licorice Milkshake reminded me of a South Asian Lassi which is both sweet and salty. So this drink is a bit of an acquired taste,
So this drink is a bit of an acquired taste, If you don't like licorice, just make it with a dash of cinnamon, of course it won't be the same. I am sharing this recipe with Recipe of the Week hosted by A Mummy Too.
