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