Moose Juice, sounds good to me!



I, yes I do read books, was looking over the new children's books when I spotted the "Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook" by Georgeanne Brennan and couldn't resist taking a look because the cover said that inside was a recipe for "moose juice". Of course I first recoiled in horror, how could mankind squeeze us noble moose into juice for their selfish consumption....ah, but then I calmed down and remembered one lesson that I've learned living in the library, that is never judge a book by its cover. Sure enough, the good Dr. Seuss had in his wisdom, intended moose juice to be enjoyed by moose! Now a good refreshing beverage is always something to look forward to and moose juice is an excellent example. Below is the recipe -

Moose Juice
¾ cup orange juice
½ cup orange sherbet
½ banana sliced
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon whipped cream

Directions for Moose Juice
combine the orange juice, sherbet, banana, vanilla extract in a blender. Puree until smooth.
Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream.
makes one serving.

And to show that this moose has literary interest, here is the appropriate Dr. Seuss excerpt from the cookbook....

A moose is asleep
He is dreaming of moose drinks
A goose is asleep
He is dreaming of goose drinks
That’s well and good, when a moose dreams of moose juice
And nothing goes wrong when a goose dreams of goose juice
But it isn’t too good when a moose and a goose
Start dreaming they’re drinking the other one’s juice

Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book.
