Banana smoothie

I'm not a fan of plain yogurt, unless eaten with zelnik or some other savory dish. I can't just sit down and eat a cup for breakfast. Unfortunately my adventures with wisdom teeth forced me to eradicate a decent portion of my natural gut bacteria, so I need to eat probiotics. One morning I discovered that the otherwise boring plain yogurt tastes very good blended with a banana and a little bit of milk to adjust the viscosity.

1 banana
0.5 cup plain yogurt
0.5 tbsp sugar
2-4 tbsp milk

Break the banana into 1-inch pieces. Add to a blender. Add milk, sugar and yogurt. Blend until completely smooth. Serve immediately.


  1. This was breakfast for me for maybe two weeks. (Before my blueberry phase.)I also liked to put just a bit of cardamom into it. Although, truth to be told, ever since I discovered that cardamom tastes the way pine trees smell I'm very sold on it.

  2. I also enjoy cardamom, the Norwegians put tons of it in all my favorite pastries :-)

    "Tastes like pinetrees smell"...that brings forth the thought of gin for me.
