I have this banana boost smoothie as a refreshing “pick me up” if I find my energy levels begin to drop during the day, because it’s so simple to make.

It’s certainly much better for me than reaching for a chocolate bar which is what I used to do before I started following the 80/20 rule for eating.

  2. Yum! This is so simple, but sounds so tasty! Your blog was one of the blogs suggested to me in the “You May Like” box on my WordPress homepage. I’m so glad I clicked it! I’m also a firm believer in the 80/20 rule 😀 Looking forward to browsing more of your recipes!

    • Hello Alissa, thank you for stopping by and posting your comment, and for following my blog. I really appreciate that. 🙂 I’ve so many recipes that I’ve got, so I hope that as I post them you may find some favourites, and perhaps try them out. I’ve another “simple” smoothie coming in the next couple of weeks! So glad that you too are a firm believer in the 80/20 rule. Life’s too short to restrict ourselves 100% of the time, I feel. Thanks again, and if you try any of my recipes, let me know how you get on. 🙂

  3. Love the banana smoothie.
    I changed the second one up a bit
    by adding coconut milk, no honey,
    garnished with coconut and cinnamon. Loved it!
