After having tried making a healthy tamarind drink, only to realise once it was done that I had used the salted preserved tamarind instead of sweet tamarind chutney and finding to my horror that it was...dreadful - I knew I had to redeem myself and make up for the funny faces that I caused my face to pull. I'm sorry face, let's try again...
And so it was that I made the "Good Mood Food"'s smoothie, and it made up for everything wrong and took me beyond - so simple, and so good - for both mind and soul ^ ^ You might wanna double of tripple this recipe, just sayin'!
1 cold (or frozen) banana, broken into bits
300ml low-fat natural yogurt (or Alpro!)
1 heaped tbsp cocoa
For sprinkling: I used cinnamon and a little bit of nutmeg, but you can use chocolate powder too of course!
- Simply whizz everything smooth either in a smoothie maker or with a stick blender. Pour, sprinkle and enjoy - it doesn't have to be more difficult than that *smiles*
Have you ever had a bit of a funny fail in the kitchen, mixing up ingredients or whatnot? I think most people have been there done that, that's what I tell myself to make me feel less of a fool anyway *starts playing Fool on the Hill by the Beatles*
PS. The evil tamarind drink in question, it looks like the one in the picture alas - tasted nothing like it would have using sweet tamarind!
I hope you have had a great start to your week!
