Sophie’s quinoa, banana & pecan smoothie

on 03/02/2010

A yummy banana, kefir & quinoa breakfast smoothy!

I love making drinkable breakfasts, don’t you? Sometimes, we can be a bit lazy.

This is what I made.
Recipe: For 2 persons, each 1 large glass
Ingredients:
500 ml of unsweetened kefir
1 ripe large banana, peeled & cut into chunks
2 tablespoons of finely chopped pecans
a few drizzles of agave syrup or brown rice syrup
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract ( I use home-made )
Method:
1. Put every ingredient, except the agave syrup or brown rice syrup in a bowl & mix everything together or put into a blender. Mix finely.
2. If necessary, add a few drizzles of agave / brown rice syrup into the bowl & mix well.
3. Pour into 2 breakfast glasses & serve.
Enjoy

A delightful combination!
