I am not a very fruit loving person and rarely buy any fruit. But lately, due to the fear of me becoming obese, I have started buying fruits and started including in my daily diet. Not quiet loving it but I try to make it taste more exciting rather than eating it raw. So today morning, I wanted to have a light breakfast (after the hangover of yesterday's heavy Sadya) and I decided to have the banana and mango which was kept for the Vishu Kanni. They came handy this morning. So I made a fruit Smoothie, had a large glass of it and went for an hour long walk by the canal. :)
A "Smoothie" is a health drink which is made by blending various fresh or frozen fruits or vegetables with some natural ingredients like honey, yoghurt, milk, oats, chocolate, and some crushed ice. It is often mistook as a milk shake and slush but it is not the same. It does not have any syrup or flavours added to it unlike milk shake and slush. So here goes a Healthy Breakfast Smoothie. Just sip away this heavy, energising drink for breakfast and your tum will be full till noon!! :)
- 1 ripe mango (peeled and chopped)
- 1 banana
- 120 ml natural yoghurt (not sour)
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp honey
- 8-10 ice cubes
- Blend everything together in a liquidizer/blender until smooth.
- Tip it in a glass and serve immediately.
