Malty banana shakes

Malty banana shakes
  • Servings

  • Courses


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.
