Recipe for Red Velvet Shake from Savour Ontario chefs

Local Ontario ingredients always make the best meals and snacks in our opinion, and Savour Ontario chefs Emily Richards, Jasmine Baker & Sarah Evans have collaborated on creating a real treat using Ontario beets, Ontario dairy and local maple syrup.  The Red Velvet Shake, and other recipes from the Dairy Famers of Ontario, will be available at the Restaurants Canada Show from the 1st – 3rd of March 2020. Don’t worry if you missed the event, because you can still whip up this tasty treat at home!

This innovative and delicious shake tastes just like decedent red velvet, but is packed with nutrient-rich ingredients including grass-fed organic yogurt, organic chocolate milk, maple syrup and local beets. The subtle heat from the panca pepper paste elevates this delectable shake to the next level and adds a little extra zing!
