Mmmmm smoothies

I made this just now and was reminded of how scrumptious it is. I thought I'd share it with you, as it's really easy to make and is great for breakfast.

Banana, lemon, honey and yogurt smoothie

2 large bananas
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp honey
300 ml low fat natural yogurt
300 ml milk
Lemon and banana slices and/or springs of fresh mins leaves to garnish

Step 1
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Serve. That's it :-)

Step 2 (optional)
Pour into glasses and garnish with lemon slices, banana slices and fresh mint leaves, if used.

And for those of you who had breakfast several hours ago and are already thinking of their mid-morning snack, here's another one of my faves.

Strawberry slush with mango and lime

1 ripe mango or 1 cup frozen or canned mango pieces
grated zest and juice of 1 lime
6 large strawberries
6 ice cubes
sparkling water
honey or sugar, to taste

Step 1
Blend the mango, then add the lime zest and juice, and the strawberries. Blend some more.

Step 2
Add the ice cubes and blend to a froth. Add enough sparkling water to make the mixture to the consistency you prefer.

Step 3
Add honey or sugar. Serve and enjoy!
