  • Banana pancakes
  • What to do

  • 1. Grab a blender and add the banana, milk, wheat germ, blueberry yoghurt and honey. Process in 10-second bursts until the mixture is smooth with no big lumps. Pour half out into a glass for yourself.

  • 2. To the remaining smoothie mix, add the ingredients for the banana pancakes and puree until smooth.

  • 3. Place a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Using a ladle, add the batter to the pan a ladleful at a time and cook until the batter starts to bubble and brown on the bottom. Flip over carefully.

  • 4. When pancake is done, remove from the pan and set aside. Repeat with the remaining batter to make more pancakes. Serve pancakes warm with maple syrup or sliced fresh fruit.
