I call it the Triple B. It’s great to have a big cup of fresh and nutrient-rich smoothie  in your car. I know that a good majority of you guys think that smoothies aren’t enough for a breakfast meal, but trust me, I’m always full even half way through my cup.  The emerging of the yoghurt and the banana adds an extra….POW!

What You’ll need: 

  1. Yoghurt
  2. fruit of your choice
  3. Milk
  4. Banana (optional)

Directions:

  1. Fill half of your blender with the fruit of your choice.
  2. Add 1 and 1/2 cup of milk and 2 tbs of yoghurt.
  3. Blend.

* Check if the consistency of your smoothie is what you desire. For a little thickness, add yoghurt and for a thinner consistency, add more milk.*

4. Gluten-free natural pancakes                                                                                                                        Let’s have a laugh, to this day, I still don’t know what “gluten-free” really means. But this pancake is flour less! Trust me, this does NOT taste as good as the Aunt Jemima ones, but they are VERY healthy. If you enjoy slow, comfortable and cozy mornings, try this out! You can add many things to it as well. It’s super simple, with two ingredients you get the things called banana egg pancakes! Enjoy!

What You’ll need:

  1. Two eggs
  2. 1 medium sized ripe banana

Directions:

  1. Smash your banana with a whisk or a fork, until it resembles a gloppy texture
  2. whisk in eggs to create a batter.
  3. Put heat on low-medium.
  4. Spread a decent amount of oil in your pan (preferably a flat pan) and start pouring the batter.
  5. When the pancakes are solid, top with any garnish!

These are a couple suggestions!

  1. Nutella
  2. Peanut Butter
  3. Maple Syrup
  4. Honey (My favourite!)
  5. Blueberries
  6. Raspberries
  7. Blackberries
  8. Jam
  9. Mango

5. Salad:                                                                                                                                                         Okay, I’m being extremely lazy on this one. Basically, chop all the fruits and veggies you have and throw it all in your bowl! I have a couple of really amazing combination of fruits and veggies here. They compliment each other, try it out!
