Banana smoothies are one of our favourite morning pick-me-ups during the hot summer months. They're quick, easy, healthy and delicious. What's not to love about that?
I first fell in love with ice cold smoothies in Bali, and we watched plenty of them being made behind the counter, so this is where the recipe comes from. I love that it contains yoghurt and water instead of milk. It still tastes great, but it's much better for you.
Anyhow, into your blender put a good handful of ice, a ripe banana, 160g or so of natural yoghurt (that's the amount in a small tub, and I'm just guessing here), a teaspoon of sugar or a drizzle of honey to taste, half a teaspoon of vanilla essence and some water. About a cup, I guess. Can you tell that it doesn't matter if you don't measure? Then blend for a bit, and voilà, it's done.
