DIY Frozen Blue and Green Milk Recipe from Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

For basically the entire month of March, Caitlin and I decided to join each other’s pods and quarantine together after a lot of loneliness. Missing Disney Parks and trying to live life like we’re on vacation, we decided to make a couple of variations of at-home versions of everyone’s favorite Batuu drinks: Blue and Green Milk.  We were so excited to find these spacey glasses at a local thrift store – they remind us of Dryden’s yacht in Solo!

Some notes: Both of these are delicious (even without the alcohol), but both are not a one-to-one recreation of the Galaxy’s Edge version – if you have a favorite recipe that comes close to the Parks version, let us know! The green milk version is an adaptation of this version a listener sent us. We decided to use oat milk since, one, we love oat milk and, two, the Batuu version is a vegan and used rice milk; oat milk allows it to be creamy. 

Let us know if you make these Galaxy’s Edge-inspired drinks!

Announcing Our Sticker Sheet!

Hello! We wanted to take a moment and write a little bit about our sticker sheets that just launched on our website! While we’ve had different merchandise through the past few years (see: our incredible “Look to the Animation Department for the Future of Star Wars” design from our friend, James W), our sticker sheet also felt very on brand for us! We wanted a way to incorporate a lot of our favorite things and sayings into one place and a sticker sheet seemed like the best fit. 

Caitlin has been an avid bullet journaler the past few years and recently has started to grow a little sticker collection of her own. The idea for a Skytalkers-themed sticker sheet grew from there. A couple of months ago, we hired one of our long time friends, Katie Gettys (we all went to middle and high school together), who has a sticker shop on Etsy called Exploremoredesigns, co and she worked with us to design a sticker sheet that highlighted some of our favorite sayings and things from Star Wars (You can see in some photos the stickers put to good use in Caitlin’s bullet journal already!).

Of course, there is Dave’s hat, the Revenge of the Sith novelization, George’s plaid shirt, and the Reylo of it all: the hands are a language and the amazing kiss.  If you’ve listened to our show, you know these sayings and items are a part of nearly every conversation we have. Our sticker sheet felt like a fun way to celebrate some of the things we love to talk about most on Skytalkers and with our listeners as well! 

We created a limited run of these sticker sheets to start off with, with the hope of making more in the future if there is enough interest. We hope you enjoy! Please share with us and tag @skytalkerspod on Twitter and @skytalkerspodcast on Instagram where you put the stickers (aka, please share your bullet journal pages, calendars, laptops,  and more!).
