Banana smoothie

1 Comment

Recently it has all been about using up old bananas. There are always old bananas in my fridge. I honestly don’t know where they come from, I think they might be breeding in the back of the vegetable bin or reproducing on the top shelf behind all the condiments. Either way, there are always a few to deal with and after cakes and muffins I was getting a little bored with cakey ways of dealing with them so was born my breakfast for a few days last week. Most days I have a big bowl of sliced bananas and grapes around the mid-morning mark. Faced with yet more old bananas and a distinct lack of young ones I decided to pull out the trusty old blender and wiz what I could find into a breakfast smoothie.

So simple but very quick, tasty and satisfying.

Banana smoothie

3 old bananas, peeled
1 Tbls honey
1 cup milk (I use hilo, a kind of skim milk but feel free to use what suits you)
a sprinkle of Nutmeg

Bung it all in the blender and wiz it up until smooth. Drink straight away.
I suggest adding the honey last else it can stick to the bottom and stubbornly refuse to blend.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.

  1. I have found that ‘soft’ bananas with Kale, ginger and maple syrup makes a mean smoothie. Give it a go!
