Go Get ’Em Smoothie

Recipe

This is truly a weekday special: a breakfast that combines food and drink for people who don’t feel they’ve even got time to sit down in the morning.

If the person-in-a-hurry is miniature in stature, and not progressed to caffeine intake, then replace the espresso powder with a tablespoonful of peanut butter. Extra protein and ultradelicious.

I keep overripe bananas, peeled and cut into quarters, in bags in the freezer which help give ice-creamy bulk to the smoothie and dispense with the need for ice.

Yield: Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 peeled frozen banana, quartered
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 teaspoons chocolate malted drink powder
  • ½ teaspoon instant espresso powder

Directions

Put all ingredients into a blender and whiz to mix.

Pour into a tall glass and drink before dashing out the door.
