Simple Banana Smoothie With Ginger
Simple Banana Smoothie With Ginger. Start the day with this quick and simple smoothie.
Last Monday I went to a baking class on mastering macaroons and it was the best fun I’ve had in ages! I met some lovely people, including a lady called Patricia. Patricia and I were the two early birds for the class, so we had time to chat a bit whilst prepping our ingredients for the class. Patricia talked about the gingerbread men she had made recently and I talked about my favourite smoothie of the moment, as it happens to have ginger in it. Before we knew it we were laughing at the mishaps we were having with the macaroons; Patricia was having trouble with the food colouring (grey instead of red), whilst mine were gorgeous in colour but rather on the thick side. They piped out looking like uumm…pink poo! Macaroons are hard to get right but luckily smoothies are so simple to make, especially if you’ve invested in a good quality blender.
Do you ever go through phases of using ingredients for weeks on end? For me, my ingredients of the moment are ginger and coconut. This smoothie was the first one I tested out using the Froothie Optimum G2.1 and the flavours remind me of sitting on a beach soaking up the rays of the sun! Ah, sunshine! It’s made a guest appearance here for the past week and I’m thinking it’s not going to stay for much longer. It really does lift your spirits though and so does this smoothie, with its yellow colour and tropical flavours.
