If you prefer a liquid breakfast or something you can have on the go, a shake or smoothie is just the ticket.
I have added the goodness of cereals and sweetened mine with malt extract – yes, just like you used to have off the spoon when you were little!
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 Weet-Bix or wheat biscuit, crumbled
- 1 ripe banana or ½ cup fresh or frozen berries
- 1-2 tbsp malt extract (ie Maltexo)
1 Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add a few ice cubes, if desired, and blend until smooth and frothy. Serve in glasses.
About Jo Wilcox
"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See www.jowilcox.co.nzmore of this author
