Blueberry bliss and Mac-nut butter banana bomb smoothies

Thick, creamy and almost milkshake-like, but super healthy. These breakfast smoothies are ‘the bomb’ and especially good for mornings when you need a little extra boost to get you going. The Blueberry bliss is rich in vitamin B 6, antioxidants and an excellent source of vitamin C.

Mac nut butter banana smoothie

A favourite in our home is the Mac-nut butter banana bomb. The addition of low GI oats provides soluble and insoluble fibre which ensures sustained energy throughout the morning. I’ve used macadamia nut butter, but you can replace it with peanut butter or better yet, organic almond butter which has a higher protein value than most other nut butters.

Now, for the all important smoothie starter-kit. It’s worth mentioning here that there are smoothies and then there are smooooothies, which is what we’re after. Step 1 is to freeze your well ripened bananas. Peel, slice into pieces and store in individual zip-lock bags. Step 2 involves making frozen yoghurt blocks and then, we’re on our way to convenient breakfast bliss.

Frozen yoghurt blocks

2 cups Greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons honey

Mix together the yoghurt, vanilla and honey until well combined. Pour into an ice cube tray and smooth over with a palette knife. Freeze overnight.
