Smoothies always look delicious and they are also healthy and fun for breakfast or brunch. Been wanting to put up my usual pancakes and smoothie recipe but decided to switch things up a bit and try something new. I used leftover bananas (which I didn’t want to go waste) to make the banana pancakes and banana smoothie.

Peeled both fruits and chopped the fruits into small bits
Put the fruits into the blender and added the milk. Blended into a smooth mix and yes…my smoothie was ready!
Ingredients for banana pancake
This batter can actually be prepared in several ways but this is how I chose to prepare the batter for this particular ‘experiment’.

I used sugar cubes and not granulated sugar, so I had to dissolve the cubes in water.
Poured in some low fat milk (my first time using this particular type of milk)
Sprinkled some nutmeg into the sugar-milk solution (lol now it feels like a science project)
Added two eggs and whisked the mixture into ‘perfection’
Sifted the quantity of flour I wanted to use, although that was not necessary because the packaging of the flour indicated that it was already super sifted.
Poured in the flour into the mixture and mixed thoroughly.
With my complete pancake mixture ready, I brought out my SECRET INGREDIENT; a banana. Mashed it and added to the pancake mixture.
I got the frying pan ready and started frying…
This is the finished product, how delicious does it look?! It tastes as delicious as it looks. Home made pancakes are just the best.
