Eat Your Veg | Banana Breakfast SmoothieEat Your Veg | Green Smoothie with Kiwi & OrangeEver since I was sent my beloved Russell Hobbs Illumina jug blender to try out back in May, there’s been a distinct increase in smoothie making at Eat Your Veg HQ, which has to be a good thing. Being short on cupboard space it’s taken on a cosy spot for itself on my work surface and thus on permanent view to The Monsters. Who pretty much without fail have taken to asking for a smoothie every day, and usually for breakie.

Funny really as they’ve never been into smoothies at all before, pa3090_illumina_light_ring_jug_blenderturning their little noses up at virtually every combination I’ve put their way in the past. I put it down to the funky light rings on the Illumina which they were immediately drawn to, blue for a slow speed blend (purees), pinky purple for medium (smoothies), green for faster blends (soups) and red for pulsing (ice crushing). There’s always a bit of fight on as to who’ll get to work the control dial!

Simply a banana or two broken into a jug blender along with a couple of tablespoons each of natural or Greek yogurt and oatbran or oats, a teaspoon of honey and all topped up with lots of lovely organic milk before whizzing into a smoothie. I use top quality and tasty Mornflake Oatbran or Jumbo Oats which I was recently given to try out and have been most impressed with. Here’s a couple of my other Mornflake oaty recipes: Oatmeal Mackerel Fillets with Rhubarb and Easy Peasy Spelt & Oat Soda Bread.

A handy hint on the banana front. Peel and freeze your brown bananas, they’re perfect to use in a smoothie or to turn into my yummy instant ice cream.

    I just tried the banana-oat smoothie combination last week for the first time and thought it was really interesting. I’ve never made it before though, so thanks for sharing the recipe! Good to know that you can use oatbran or oats in it.
