Banana and Blueberry Smoothie

October 24, 2012 5 Comments

If you have a poor appetite or just pushed for time in the morning, this smoothie is so quick and simple to make.

It is also a great recipe to make as a snack during the day, or after exercise.

All you need is a hand blender (or a full blender if you have one) and a glass ready to go

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 banana

1/3 cup blueberries

1/3 cup yoghurt

1/3 cup soy milk

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method:

Place all ingredients into the blender and mix

Simple.

To Vary the Flavours Include Milk and Yoghurt and Substitute the Banana and Blueberries for;

Mixed Berries

Banana and Date (cut the dates up prior to mixing in blender)

Banana and Honey

Any combination of Stone Fruit

Banana and Oats (More substantial and higher protein)

Peanut Butter and Dates (Cut dates up prior to mixing in blender)

You will be surprise on how little you can taste them. The banana and blueberry covers the taste almost completely!

or how about cinnamon, a date or two, almond butter, 1/4-1/2 avocado and a handful of spinach along with some fruit and yoghurt +chia seeds or linseed meal- now that’s a meal replacement!
