The weather has been so bad in the sense that it’s already unbearably hot come seven in the morning. That said, I haven’t really had that much appetite for solid food, preferring to guzzle down cold water, lemonade, and iced tea in copious amounts just to cool down.
But a girl needs something filling in the morning just to be able to keep heat-induced sluggishness at bay. So when you’re ready to throw in the towel and scream at the heat, may I suggest this delectably nutty breakfast smoothie?
It’s a very simple affair, really: instant coffee, milk, a ripe banana, and a tablespoon each of peanut butter and Nutella. Blitz and you’re good to go – even if the day continues sweltering hot.
Nutty Breakfast Smoothie
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 sachet 3-in-1 coffee
- several ice cubes
- 1-1/2 cups cold milk (plain or chocolate) or ready-to-drink bottled cafe-au-lait
- 1 tablespoon Nutella
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
Throw all the ingredients into a blender and blitz for a minute and a half or till properly liquefied and frothy. Pour into a tall glass. Makes 1 large smoothie.
