Good morning everyone!
As I thought about what I should make myself for breakfast this morning, I felt like a nice sweet treat before starting work.
A few days ago I came across a recipe where they used frozen banana to lose up the banana mash. So I thought I would give it a try. But because of the fact that I didn’t have any frozen banana but a fresh one I had to cheat a bit.
And what came out was so delicious I had to share it with you.
This fruit mash is a combination of smooth, cold, warm, soft, sweet, exotic and light, what makes it a perfect breakfast to kick off the day.
It is really easy to make and it only takes you a few minutes of preparation.
A plus point for all vegan friends is that you only use fresh fruit, chia seeds and cinnamon, so no milk nor sugar.
3 tea spoons of chia seeds
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
2 ice cubes (depends on rather you use a fresh or a frozen banana)
1 tea spoon of cinnamon
and some red currants as a topping (Or any fruit you like)
First of all you should prepare your chia seeds because they are the ones that take the longest time.
Give 3 tea spoons of chia seeds in a small bowl or cup and fill them up with a bit of water, so they are completely covered by it.
Then leave your chia seeds in the fridge for about 20 minutes until they have soaked up the water and are now soft and look like a jelly. Chia seeds are full of good proteins for your body so they are perfect to put in your breakfast to start the day with lot of fresh energy.
Meanwhile cut your banana and nectarine in pieces and let the mixer do the rest for you. Make sure to mix your fruit so long as they reach a nice smooth consistency.
In the winter time when you can’t buy any nectarines at your fruit market you can sure use plums instead. I think that especially during the winter time plums in combination with cinnamon taste just like Christmas.
If you don’t have any frozen banana but you want to eat this breakfast any way, like I did, then you can now add two or three ice cubes in your mixer. That way your fruit mash gets looser and a bit like an ice cream.
As I already mentioned above I think that cinnamon goes really well with this breakfast, so I added one tea spoon of cinnamon to my mash and gave it a last round in the mixer.
And now your breakfast is nearly ready to be eaten.
As the final step take your chia seeds out of the fridge, but them in your breakfast bowl, then put your fruit mash on top and to make your breakfast a bit special and also to your own creation you can put any fruit you like chopped on top. I chose to take some red currants because I like them a lot and their light sour taste was the perfect contrast to the sweet taste of the fruit mash.
I hope you enjoy my breakfast creation as much as I did. If you have any suggestions what fruit in your opinion goes really well as a topping just leave it in the comment below.
Enjoy it and let me know how you liked it!
