Sailor Moon Inspired Drinks — Act I: Usagi

8:15 AM


I've loved the idea of fictional-inspired foods for as far back as I can remember, starting with Disney films as a kid and moving on from there. The idea of combining various forms of media with things like fashion, food, and beauty is something I've always been so enchanted by, and most of the reason I started this blog.

So, I was sitting around one day, and the idea for a drink came to me that would be the perfect embodiment of Rei (coming soon!), and the idea for Sailor Moon inspired drinks just snowballed from there.

I am aware that a Sailor Moon Cafe is a thing that exists, but unfortunately, it's only limited to Japan, and there's little chance I'll be getting to go there any time soon. So, I thought, why not make my own Sailor Moon themed drinks? I tried to embody one of two things: the character's physical design (color scheme/powers) or (as is this particular case) something to do with the character's personality + interests. Usagi has a particular fondness for all things dessert, so naturally, I had to go that route.

I may do another for Usagi at some point that's more inclusive of her color scheme + abilities, but for now, I figured I'd go with something that Usagi herself would very much approve of.

SAME, USAGI. SAME.

Usagi's Chocolate Overload Milkshake

1 frozen banana
1 c milk of choice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp dark chocolate cocoa powder
brownie pieces of choice
chocolate syrup
whipped cream

1.) blend together banana, milk, vanilla + cocoa powder until creamy
2.) add in brownies and blend just slightly
3.) garnish with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and brownie pieces


The nice thing about recipes like this is that it can be easily tweaked to your liking; ice cream instead of frozen banana, regular cocoa instead of dark, cake instead of brownies... Endless possibilities!

If you try it, let me know how you like it!! Stay tuned... Our lovely resident girl genius is up next!

    1. Hehe surprisingly not as unique as you'd think, but thank you!! I know, Japan has a few different ones that I know of (and possibly lots that I haven't yet heard of!) I always wonder why no one has tapped into that market in America yet!! ALAS. Thank you so much!! :)

  2. Unfortunately, I don't watch anime or Sailor Moon enough to get the reference, BUT I do think that this is a wonderful idea! I'm more of a Butterbeer kind of girl and I'd whip that up anyday, dressed like a Hogwarts Student and all... Hahaha, I loved this!

  6. I've never seen Sailor Moon, but that milkshake look so delicious! I love anything with absurd amount of chocolate on it! Food and literature is a great combination, I think it really brings us closer to the characters, and we get to experience them more like actual people!
