Saturday breakfast

Banana smoothie by kehkat

I’ve had a bit of a craving for smoothies of late, so figured I’d give one a go since I had some bananas I wasn’t trying to make go black for banana bread.

Ingredients:
– A2 full cream milk
– A2 natural yoghurt
– 1 banana
– copious amounts of honey

Mixed together in my blender inherited from Grandma, which is rather quite noisy but does the job. The results? YUM!

Really quite quick and easy to put together, the hardest part was cutting up the banana. So not that hard at all!

Gluten-free biscuits w/ smarties

I am a huge fan of this recipe from kidspot.

I have successfully made it gluten-free a few times now, so I’m happy to experiment a little with what goes in it.

We had a bunch of the small packets of smarties leftover from showbags at Easter – we don’t eat much chocolate as I’m allergic to dairy as well, so it seemed like a good opportunity to use them since I was out of choc chips.

I substituted normal self-raising for Aldi’s Has No self-raising flour and added some xanthum gum to pad it out. I also had to add 2 extra eggs to bind it all. Everything else is as the recipe recommends.

The verdict from Adam: yum!
