The Wonder Breakfast When Your on the GO!
Sweet nothings can deny me my favourite way to start the day… OK my SECOND favourite way to start the day ~ wink wink nudge nudge, nuff said.
I’m consciously aware of the importance of a hearty breakfast in our daily diet, but up until this point it has eluded me in the physical sense. I’m either to busy, to lethargic or too busy being lethargic .
I craved something tangible … I quick fix.
The day that my Banana and Manuka Honey Smoothie slid into my life is a day I will never forget. It sums up breakfast on the go for me like toast and marmalade could never do.
And did I mention the health benefits???
So here comes the wavier first. Though I’m no doctor, the ingredients that make up this smoothie are good for your heart, kidney’s and bones that will help to enhance your mood if your feeling a little flat.
Manuka honey is fabulously exclusive, thanks to it being produced by bees that collect pollen from the Manuka trees that grow on the East coast of New Zealand.
This particular honey has all the benefits of normal honey plus the added bonus of being antibacterial and antiviral. In fact, Manuka honey is medical grade honey ~ great for wound healing, burns, wrinkles, acne and a myrid of other ailments.
For those of you similar to myself who like the idea of drinking your yogurt and bananas rather than chewing them ~ this is the Breakfast treat for you!
~makes enough for 1 large glass
1 Banana ~ ripe and smooth, best to avoid unripe bananas in a smoothie as it wont be as creamy
2 Tbs Greek yogurt
2 tsp Manuka honey
350mls of chilled apple juice
Place all ingredients into a blender and whizz until nicely combined and oh so smooth ~ie.
