Banana smoothie: Mornings are hectic! In our busy schedules, we hardly have time for breakfast. I love the concept of a quick fix and filling breakfasts. They keep me fueled throughout the morning and charged up, to focus on my tasks at hand. I know for a fact that not only the working women like us, but many ladies who stay at home and work, eat breakfast several hours AFTER they wake up. What to do! There is so much work to be done. :) Still, going on an empty stomach that early in the day,is a welcome call to ulcers and other gastric problems. Hunger pangs, when you are busy…leave you drained out, moody and irritable!
This banana smoothie recipe, that I am sharing with you today, is going to be the perfect solution for you! Don’t worry, it will NOT cause you any waistline issues;) instead, it is rich in low glycemic index carbs, that keep you full for longer. Add the soluble fiber of bananas and vitamins of milk-this is one of the HEALTHIEST breakfasts that you can have. I promise :)
