Banana Smoothie (Cinnamon & Honey)

We sometimes have to deal with a banana glut in our house. The Junior Gingerbread's go mad for them and then you mistime the shopping, or your Mum brings an extra large bag of them round and we go from famine to feast.

If you read this regularly you will know my attempts at banana cake and muffins have failed in a bouncy rubbery heap of yukkiness that even the birds rejected. Instead here is my current favorite banana 'user upper'. As an aside the kids like these when recovering from a tummy bug - an easy way of getting something gentle into their tummy's.

Oh and it turns out that photographing a smoothie to look attractive with my trusty camera phone is a bit of a challenge - please forgive the rather uninspiring image and imagine the amazing smell and taste that goes with it instead.

One ripe (but not brown) banana
Spoon of honey
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Semi skimmed milk

Whiz the banana and a little milk in a jug (or use a blender if you don't have a hand 'stick' type blender).
Slacken with as much milk as you like until you get a consistency of smoothie that suits you
Add honey and cinnamon - again as much or as little as you want
Serve and consume immediately
