Banana Smoothie

January 18, 2011 at 4:23 pm (recipes) (, , , , )

As you may be aware I often have a protein shake for breakfast as I do an hour of exercise in the morning and it’s quick and easy to prepare at work.

However on the weekend when I have a bit more time I like to mix up my breakfast a bit. Therefore after seeing Lisa Simpson’s YouTube clip on making a deliciously healthy banana smoothie I decided to make one after my bike ride on Saturday.

It’s really easy, tastes great and has a heap of added benefits including LSA (linseed, almond and sunflower seed mix) which is a great source of essential fatty acids and fiber.

How to make it


  • 1 banana (the riper it is the sweeter the smoothie will be!)
  • 1 cap of vanilla essence
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of LSA
  • 1 dollop of natural yoghurt (fat free Yalna and Easiyo skimmers are good ones)
  • Skim milk (or another kind of low fat milk)


  1. Place all of the ingredients into a blender
  2. Blend and enjoy!

What is your favourite weekend breakfast?
