For this month’s Recipe Redux Challenge the theme given was…….
Break Out of Breakfast Boredom
Cooks aren’t always pressed for time in the mornings – they just need new ideas. Think mug cakes, smoothie bowls, breakfast cookies and more. Show us the healthy way you wake up your breakfast – or wake up just for breakfast!
The breakfast being the first meal of the day , it must be filling and healthy to start the day. I choose to make a smoothie bowl with the common and healthy fruit Banana. In the smoothie I added cocoa powder to add the flavour and taste. I added oatmeal to thicken the smoothie .
I used greek yogurt which can be replaced by Milk . For vegans , use almond milk or soya milk.
2 Large Banana
6 whole Almonds
1tbs cocoa powder
5 Dates Pitted
2 tbs Rolled Oatmeal
¼ cup greek Yogurt
2 tbs Honey
In a blender , add the peeled and chopped banana , almonds , oatmeal , cocoa powder ,Dates , honey and yogurt. Blend all together until smooth.
Pour into serving bowl .
Arrange the toppings banana slices , choco chips , chopped almond and pumpkin seeds.
Banana Cocoa Oatmeal smoothie is ready to serve.
