Wednesday January 25 - Banana Smoothie

I have a lot of milk to get through.  I had one more banana that was getting to the 'very ripe' stage.  Result: banana smoothie for breakfast.

Recipe: 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup yoghurt, 1 quite ripe banana, 1 tablespoon protein powder, 1 tablespoon psyllium husks.  Blend.  Result:  quite yummy.

I adhere as much as possible to the zone diet, so added a teaspoon of peanut butter on the side.  (I was tempted to mix the peanut butter with all the other ingredients like Joon in Benny and Joon, but resisted).  It still didn't feel like I'd had a proper breakfast, but coffee afterwards helped of course.  I wasn't hungry again for more than 4 hours so maybe it was just in my head.  The weather is still quite cool and rainy, but I think this could make it onto the hot weather breakfast options.


  1. Have you tried mixing a spoonful of honey into the smoothie, and finishing it off with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top?

  2. This was my first ever smoothie! I had cinnamon out but didn't notice it again until I was putting breakfast things away. D'oh. Next time, I'll try your suggestion :)
