I’m not a big breakfast person. If I eat anything at all, it’s usually just a bowl of All-Bran cereal with milk. End of story. Mostly because I’m just not hungry that early in the morning (hello, I have school and I wake up at like 6 o’clock in the morning). But during the weekend, breakfast usually happens around noon, which opens up a whole new dimension of possibilities. Smoothies are great, especially for people like me, that have a hard time actually making and eating breakfast. It’s liquid, so your strength wont be diminished by all that chewing, HA! And all the ingredients are packed with nutrients which wakes you up and nourishes both your brain and your body.
I love my my little mini grater. It’s adorable. OK, enough with the girly talk.
Here is the “recipe”:
1 ripe banana
2 dl / 0.85 cup juice of your choice (I used some fresh orange and pineapple juice that was left over from earlier)
½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons low fat yoghurt
Blend the banana, juice and ginger until smooth. Then add the yoghurt and blend for 30 more seconds to whip some air into it. Done!
I don’t really use recipes for making smoothies, it’s mostly about using what you have and going with what flavours you like. But for the sake of education, I thought this would be nice. And yes, I had a macaron for breakfast, don’t judge.
Happy… blending! ;D
