Bananas and (frozen) berries are my kitchen staples. Bananas are a perfect to-go snack, a beautiful pair with oatmeal and an excellent base for smoothies, smoothiebowls and nicecreams. They’re good fuel with plenty of fibre, loaded with potassium and easy to digest when fully ripe (aim for brown spots, or leopard skin as I like to refer to it).

Besides bananas I always have soft fruits and frozen leafy greens in my freezer, since fresh ones go bad very quickly. It’s one of the easiest ways to create healthy morning habits. Must haves for me are spinach, kale, berries, cherries and mangoes. A cupful of either one combined with 2 ripe bananas is enough to create a quick, tasty and filling smoothie.

I like to keep mornings raw and simple. For proper digestion, always eat fruits alone. Combining quickly digestible fruits with foods that take longer to digest, like protein or grains, make the fruits ferment in your stomach, which lead to acidity of the body and may cause discomfort.* By keeping it simple you’re not only out of the kitchen before you know it, but you’re also being kind to your body.

For this smoothie you just need bananas, blueberries and water.


* (The exception to this food combining mentioned above is combining fruits that don’t readily ferment, like bananas, apples or coconut, with complex carbohydrate rich foods such as oats, or millet. Also, according to Dr. Hay’s research, acidic fruits like oranges and lemon combine ok with nuts).

Recipe

Equipment

High speed blender

Ingredients

2 ripe bananas
1 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries
1 cup of water

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

If you’re using fresh blueberries and you like your smoothies cold, you might want to consider substituting the water with a couple of ice cubes, or 1 of the fresh bananas with a frozen banana.
