Nifty Notion #6: Breakfast Smoothie

Ever have days when you slept in and just don’t have time to eat breakfast? Ever wake up and just can’t be bothered? If you’re like me you’ll be nodding. But skipping brekkie leaves me feeling pretty ‘blah’ for the rest of the day. 

Here’s my solution to a quick meal-on-the-run come meal-you-have-when-you-know-you-must-but-can’t-be-bothered. It’s great for other times too!

Breakfast Smoothie
Serves 1

You will need:
1 large or 2 small banana/s.
1 egg (raw)
1 teaspoon of honey
A dash of Vanilla
Milk (of your choice – I use rice milk)  

How to:
  1. Peel and blend banana/s.
  2. Add egg, honey, a dash of vanilla, (and a pinch of cinnamon if so desired) and blend until smooth
  3. Top up with milk to required level (I use a 500ml cup – so top up the banana mix to about that) and blend again.
  4. Pour into cup and top with a light sprinkle of cinnamon
  5. Enjoy!

For extra goodness, add a spoonful or two of fibre mix at step 2.

PS - Did you click on the link next to the milk (in the ingredients list)? A real Aussie TV ad, good for a giggle :)


  1. I looked for a link of the funny video, but didn't see one. This looks healthy and interesting. I also use rice milk sometimes, and I love cinnamon! I don't think I have ever made a smoothie with a raw egg in it before. That is the part that makes it interesting to me haha. It sounds yummy, and yet not sure about the egg...but I eat raw cookie dough all the time, so I should dive in and try this! Half the time I can't be bothered either ;) so this would be good.

    1. You won't even know the egg is there, trust me - I wouldn't add it if you did! It provides some protein, and helps keep you going longer. The link is in the ingredients list. In brackets next to 'milk' where it says 'of your choice'. But here it is again to be sure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QphMaa4wxI :o)

  2. ah..I see it now. Thanks! Yes, the protein is great..I am trying to add more protein to my diet. I will take your word for it and for sure try this! I like trying new things anyways :) Thanks for sharing. Lol to the commercial!


Thanks for commenting - I love to hear what you're thinking!
