Super quick, super healthy and super yummy! The super smoothie!
This is for the days when I'm in a hurry or just too lazy to fix a proper breakfast but need the energy to get a kickstart to my day.
A friend introduced me to this juice bar near where she works where they serve this really delicious, to-die-for breakfast drink. She swears by it and I believe her ... stick thin and she runs on endless energy. I so need that ... the energy and definitely the stick-thinness. At $12 a pop ... I thought I'd try do this myself.
This is so easy, healthy and the best part is that all the ingredients can be stored easily ...yes, even the bananas, which can be frozen (don't mind the color change. It doesn't really affect the goodness or the taste).
I always have frozen bananas in the freezer for the days when I need to satisfy an ice cream crave and don't need to regret it afterwards. I have a one-ingredient ice cream (best eaten freshly made) that does the trick. I guess I could also have this as my breakfast-on-the-go but I like a little variety and I can take this along with me without any drips and messes ... oh, you'll need a really fat straw (I tried it the first time with a regular sized straw .... saw stars and nearly passed out by the time I finished the entire cup).
1/2 cup of your favorite muesli
1/2 cup fresh yogurt / frozen yogurt
1 cup fresh milk
1 banana (fresh/frozen)
honey to taste
Plonk all ingredients into a blender. Buzz. Slurp.
*Note: I love using frozen bananas for this as it makes the drink super cold and gives it a slushy-like texture as well without having to use ice cubes. I sometimes reduce the milk to make a thicker smoothie but then ... forget the straw, fat or skinny or you'll pass out for sure :D
* Makes 1 breakfast-on-the-go!
