There is something about smoothies that make them very hard to decline. The froth on top
sprinkled with nutmeg or cinnamon, the coca taste that stays on your tounge. The sweet,
soft texture and the how on hot summer days they are rarely unwelcome.
Banana and cinnimon make an excellent couple! The pair go very well together when introduced to blueberry muffins and fruit platters for a Sunday morning brunch. The soft texture and the
froth on top wins me over each time! I sit in the sunshine and enjoy.
Smoothies never taste half as good bought at a coffee shop, you have to mix them up yourself
to capture the homemade essence that a chef at a cafe' could never capture. A few pieces of
fruit (to get the best results use banana) full cream milk, yogurt and a little sprinkle of sugar and
spice and all things that are nice and 'Voila' you have the perfect mid-afternoon drink.
These smoothies are simple and srumpitous, and this is how you make them.
