Some people just aren’t fans of hot drinks; each to their own. But what morning pick me up does one offer someone who falls under this category? A cool, refreshing Espresso Banana Smoothie.
My friend and I were feeling rather parched from perhaps one too many vino’s the night before, and with our hot drink predicament, an iced coffee seemed the perfect solution. Craving a further boost of energy I added a frozen banana and sneaky spoon of chia seeds to the mix. Now we had the extra hit of nutrients we needed to brave the day. Wine, what wine?
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1 shot of espresso
- 1 scoop of ice-cream (depends how healthy you want to be)
- It's a hard one.... put everything into a blender and blitz away!
- Make sure you peel the banana before freezing - it's good to cut it into chunks too.
