Nigella's Breakfast Smoothie
Back in March when I wanted to take on Nigella Lawson's cookbook Nigella Express, I started working through her many great, yet fattening, recipes. Well, between vacation time and just getting busy I have neglected her.
Last night we wanted dessert and decided to modify Nigella's Go Get 'Em Smoothie from the breakfast version to an evening treat. No caffeine is needed at 9:30 in the evening in our house.
The original recipe, for breakfast or anytime you want a treat with caffeine, requires the following:
1 peeled frozen banana, quartered
2/3 cups milk
1 tablespoon honey
4 teaspoons chocolate malted milk powder
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
Note about the frozen bananas - when they start turning a bit too ripe just peel, break it into a quarters and toss into a baggie. Freeze for later use. Using frozen bananas will take the place of using ice when making a smoothie.
We tossed the frozen bananas in the blender. Added fresh cut strawberries instead of the espresso powder and used a bit of extra honey. Blend until smooth.
Pour into glasses and enjoy. What could be more simple.
