You may have noticed by now that I have a little tiny obsession with bananas. Don't worry though, it's not harmful, in fact bananas are fruit's little power punchers. Full of potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, fibre and protein, these little babies punch way above their weight in the health department. But even banana-obsessed me cannot eat them all before they go brown, so that is where recipes like this one come in so handy.
This delicious smoothie has a good amount of fruit, sweetness and chocolate, plus is probiotic and sugar free! The kefir adds a wonderfully tangy twist to what could be quite a rich beverage and due to the high amount of the stuff, you know you're doing good things for your gut. Hoorah! By adding chia seeds, you add a powerful punch of omega 3, antioxidants and protein, helping to give your body a boost of important nutrients. Plus these super little suckers will help keep you feeling full for longer.
Who likes pancakes? Stupid question, everyone does. Everyone has wonderful memories of waking up on a Saturday morning to the smell of cooking pancakes.

The soft, spongey texture, the layers of butter and maple syrup drizzled over the top, licking the plate at the end to remove all pancake residue. Just me? Okay then.
This morning the three ladies of the family went to a Zumba class together. I was up way too early for any human and decided I needed a quick and healthy breakfast to help me keep up in the class. Cue: Microwave Mug Granola.
