Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Goat-puccino?

As your barista today I'll be serving you a goat-puccino:

Goat-puccino in a pint jar

Yikes! Did you spit out your $5 coffee drink? Sorry! But really, this is delish!

When I tell folks that we milk dairy goats they usually have the same, involuntary reaction... a sniffed up nose and an exclamation of: "eeeeuuuuwweee!"  Then a pause.. then the questions: "What's it like? Is it goaty?"

Really - goat milk is as smooth, creamy, and delicious as the best cow's milk. While I prefer cream (from a lovely jersey gal) in my hot coffee, when I need a frozen coffee drink I head for the freezer for one of my half-full, already frozen pints of goat milk.

I make strongly brewed coffee (no cappuccino maker here), let it cool a bit, then pour it over the frozen goat milk in a pint jar. I give it a few minutes to melt...then give a shake-a shake-a shake-a shake-a and voila.... goat-puccino. Easy, fun, and cost of goods... maybe $0.50? Now did you spit out your expensive coffee drink?

Would you like a pastry with that? Maybe a tiny pie?

Cuddling a Meep WHILE drinking a goat-puccino out of a mason jar... now THAT is the ticket!

That actually looks really good! Followed link over from your comment on the goat site(?). I'm an Ohio girl dreaming of farm/ranch life while living in town. :)
