Smoothies have never been a favorite of mine. Perhaps because they did not feel me enough, perhaps because they often looked complicated to make, and I never had all the ingredients to make them. Well it all changed this week. For some reason, my traditional breakfast did not suit with me this week. I did not feel like eating toast, or scrambled eggs or anything else really. But as a firm believer that breakfast should not be skipped, i scouted my fridge for something to eat. Fruits did not appeal to me… so what???? I had bananas getting brown and that’s when I decided that instead of wasting them, I could use them for a smoothie. I will tell you that I did not follow any recipe here, I just used what I had on hand and threw things here and there in my mixer.
Ingredients for 2 tall glasses:
- 1 large banana
- 1 mango ripe
- 1 cup of milk ( almond, coconut or regular ) I used skim lactaid.
- 2 tbsp of brown sugar, or honey, or agave.
- Place all ingredients besides the sugar in a mixer.
- Add sugar if you deem it necessary
- You may add more milk if you wish to make your smoothie more liquid.
You can substitute any fruit to the mango. One day i used strawberries, another day I used blueberries.
The recipe makes 2 tall glasses, so you can either share with a person in your household ( i did with my daughter Lisa one day), or you can keep one for snacks ( I also did that several days in a row.) Thos smoothies are very filling, and I was fully satisfied ans satiated. Give it a try, it is a nice healthy option for breakfast. Now I am a smoothie addict;-)
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
