We love our cheeses in savoury dishes, pizzas and burgers. One of the most popular cakes of all time is a cheesecake.
But will cheesy beverages achieve that level of love?
To the uninitiated, cheese and tea would more likely to drew a grimace than an all-out “YES, give me that!”
But who knows you could be like me – after my first cheese tea months ago followed by these Moodmojee refreshing beverages last week, I am now official a big fan of them!
Ok, maybe not in THAT size. 😀
The folks over at Anchor Food Professionals launched six (6) new dairy beverages recently. If you are keen to try them, you can enjoy them from these cafes:

During the launch, I witnessed the drinks being made and had a taste of each and every one of them. Some were too sweet for me, but I enjoyed the Pom & Grey Twist followed by the Tangy Brew and lastly the White Chocoffee.
The Pom & Grey Twist (flavoured cheese tea and Earl Grey with added pomegranate syrup and topped with chocolate cream) was absolutely refreshing and a perfect thirst quencher.
If you are familiar with Earl Grey, then you would know that this black tea is blended with oil of bergamot; infusing it with a delicate taste and mild citrus aroma.
The added pomegranate syrup enhanced the tea taste so as you sip the drink together with the top of cream dusted with cocoa powder, you will find that every element blended well on your tongue.
Tangy Brew (cold brew, orange, cream and cheese foam) had me licking my lips too.
This is for the coffee lover who appreciates a bit of additional flavour to their coffee, but not overly so.
So, here is a drink with a jolt of zest and oh-so-creamy cheese melting on your tongue as the rich coffee flowed through your lips.
Moodmojee White Chocoffee (white coffee + peanut butter + chocolate) is a crowd pleaser. I mean, you can’t dislike peanut butter and coffee and chocolate can you?
The unlikely pairing of rich and sweet chocolate and citrusy yuzu offers an interesting flavour. Yuzu Chocolate Surprise is a mixture of iced chocolate with Yuzu puree and rimmed with salt lemon cooling candy.
Now, say it again – “rimmed with salt lemon cooling candy“. Interesting isn’t it?
Lemon Mint Meringue is a lemon mint vanilla ice blended. Topped with a strong dollop of freshly whipped and torched meringue with slices of candied lemon and orange, this was sweet, creamy and well, RICH!
Last but not least was an ambitious Malaysian invention where glutinous rice, red beans, our local coconut custard (kaya) plus coconut palm sugar were thrown in, with a piece of toasted bread dipped in for good measure.
Looks good, sounds intriguing but how did it taste?
Created by Chef Firuz (as above), Kayanika Fusion is a milky drink layered with sweet traditional ‘kaya’, ‘gula melaka’, ‘pulut’ and red beans.
The result was a dessert-drink which works both to fill you up as well as a fancy beverage.
So there you go, the 6 Moodmojee creamy beverages that were created to boost your mood, each showcases the delicious possibilities of DAIRY in beverages, thanks to Anchor!
These drinks are available in Anchor Food Professionals’ partners around Malaysia (check the list I shared above) or you can buy Anchor Full Cream Milk, Anchor Cream Cheese and Anchor Whipping Cream to create them at home!
