[Recipe] Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast Smoothie

Breakfast Smoothie

Inspired by Ramona Champion and her veggie craze (see youtube video below) I thought that Kale and Banana smoothie would be pretty good for breakky.

This is kale, a bundle of curly-leaf kale in fact

I don’t have fresh kale but I have Aojiru (Green Juice Powder)! It is a drinkable vegetable supplement and it contains kale and other green stuff. I once used Aojiru for Swiss roll cake baking, there are more details about Aojiru in that post. I will put the link to it at the bottom of this post!

Take FANCL Aojiru if you don't get the time to eat enough veggies!

Fresh kale alternative for now

So then I added a banana that’s got black spots on it (not necessary of course)

Ever watched Despicable Me? Baaa-Na-Na.

A little yellow minion knows that: Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B6, soluble fiber, and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and potassium. Along with other fruits and vegetables, consumption of bananas may be associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer and in women, breast cancer. (not paraphrased).

Banana ingestion may affect dopamine production in people deficient in the amino acid tyrosine, a dopamine precursor present in bananas. Individuals with a latex allergy may experience a reaction to bananas. The minions don’t seem to care, so why should you?

With a bit of help from a cup of milk (portion judged by how much I can drink in the morning) – blend away!

That thing you use to chop veggies? I used it to make smoothie.

Here you go!

Here you go!
