Is Multnomah Falls Milk Any Good?

Let me start by saying that Multnomah Falls has several varieties of plant-based milks available and I only tried one. This one ⬇

A mixture of soymilk and almond milk. Shelf-stable so that it doesn’t need to be refrigerated until it’s opened.

This has a .. perfume flavor to it. Almost like the fragrance found in cherry almond body spray – just without the cherry.

Optimistically, I’ll say that it is creamy. But I can’t fake the funk. It does not appeal to my tastebuds.

Perhaps it is the cooking process (that’s required to make it shelf-stable) that gives it a weird flavor. I’m not sure.

Or maybe it could be the soymilk. I don’t drink soymilk unless it’s the only non-dairy option available at Starbucks. At the grocery store, I perfer almond milk.. Or a coconut almond blend.

I dont mean to dump on this brand. They seem to have good intentions:

But for me this is a big NO THANK YOU.

Dragon Fruit

Trying an exotic fruit carries the risk of over paying for something that you don’t like.

Luckily, that wasn’t the case with Dragon Fruit, although it was risky!

Having only seen the exotic fruit on Instagram, I really really wanted to give it a taste. The beauty of it alone was an experience I craved.

So when I was in Virginia and saw one on sale for 5 dollars, I didn’t hesitate to get it.

It’s pinkish red and and a little yellowish green. & about the size of a softball.

It felt ripe so I cut into it. It looked exactly as it should:

Having previous knowledge of the texture, I used a melon baller to scoop out the soft flesh.

And then, me and my son had a taste.

“It tastes like water!” He said.

I couldn’t disagree with him. The texture was very light and lightly sweetened. The small black seeds were close in texture to those found in kiwis.

He went back for more and so did I – until it was gone.

I don’t think I would eat a Dragon Fruit any other way. Not in a smoothie- raw is the way to go, I think. Mixed with anything else the flavor might get washed away. And now, typing this up, I wish I had more Dragon Fruit to eat!

There are other varieties of Dragon Fruit out there and I look forward to trying them 🙂
