This is truly a weekday special: a breakfast that combines food and drink for people who don't feel they've even got time to sit down in the morning. If the person-in-a-hurry is miniature in stature, and not progressed to caffeine intake, then replace the camp coffee with a tablespoonful of peanut butter. Extra protein and ultra delicious. I keep overripe bananas, peeled and cut into four, in bags in the freezer, which helps give ice-creamy bulk to the smoothie and dispense with the need for ice.
- 1 peeled banana, cut into 4, from the freezer
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 4 teaspoons malted chocolate drink powder (recommended: Ovaltine)
- 1 teaspoon strong coffee or 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
Put all ingredients into a blender and whiz to mix.
Pour into a tall glass and drink before dashing out of the door.
