Winter Banana "Smoothie"
« on: April 24, 2012, 12:42:06 pm »
Winter Banana Smoothie
Serves one

Ingredients:
20-30g oats
1 large banana, roughly chopped or broken
100g low-fat vanilla yoghurt
250ml skim milk
Extra flavourings as desired: vanilla essence, nutmeg, cinnamon, LSA... you could even try some cocoa powder to make it chocolatey... ;)

Method:
1. Grind oats for 6 seconds/speed 8, or until desired consistency is achieved.
2. Add banana and yoghurt. Blend for 10 seconds/speed 4.
3. Add milk and cook for 7 minutes/70 degrees/speed 4.

Notes:
I love this "smoothie" on cold days. I never make it exactly the same but this is basically what I do. Sometimes I add more oats, cook it for longer, grind the oats more finely, or add more milk. Depends how I feel on the day :D

Below is a photo of one I made tonight. I put a small handful of blueberries in the bottom of my glass, and then poured the smoothie on top. Yum!

My pleasure JD! I did wonder if I should have put it in breakfasts... ???

I am just having a glass of water and realised there's an ant in it. How very rude >:(

I'll put a copy in Breakfasts too Amy - that way it can't be missed.

Thanks Amy. This would be good for a breakfast on the run.

I bought the yoghurt the other day to make this but last night ate the last banana without thinking  :-))

Oh dear JD! I don't think it would be quite the same without the banana... ;)

But that has got me thinking that it might be interesting to try with different fruits... I might experiment! :D

Delicious, was looking for a banana smoothie found this - even better for this chilly morning. Between this and my Varoma omlette I'm all set for winter breakfasts with my TM!!!

Oooh this sounds PERFECT for a cold winter morning, can't wait to try it (waiting not-so-patiently for my Thermomix to arrive  ;) )

We are smoothie mad here, never thought of warm ones, great afternoon tea pick me up after being out in the cold!  I save any uneaten porridge for cold smoothies.

Our current fave is choc mint, not sure if it would work warm, hmmm.
