John requested a shake to be named after him back in Montezuma, but John Sullivan as a shake name, ummmm not that catchy??? Hence, Phraxos Nights, for him!
It is very easy to make and you don't even need a Vita-Mix! Here is the recipe:
1 small papaya
1 tablespoon of agave nectar
1 tablespoon of flaxseeds
1/2 cup coconut water (from young Coconuts)
Papaya seeds and mint for decoration
Blend all the ingredients and taste...add more agave if you like...Decorate with papaya seeds and mint...Hupurrrrt!
Phraxos is for imagination...It is the Greek island of Spetses, where another John (Fowley) wrote the Magus and made up the name. We had this heated debate one night whether it really existed or not. John read the novel long time ago and remembered the name of the island, Costas he is from Greece and insisted it didn't exist. What are names after all? Aren't they all made up? I found the pictures of Phraxos, quite nice actually.... :)
