Banana two ways: Banana shake/banana pancake recipe

Posted in Recipes.

First thing in the morning can be trying at best. You’ve made them cereal but they don’t want that, they want cake. Meanwhile, you’ve decided to skip breakfast all together and just have a coffee. Well, here is an easy fix: a smoothie and pancake mix all in one from Aaron Harvie’s cookbook, A house husband’s guide: Our meal, their meal.

Banana shake/banana pancake recipe

Serves: 2 Grown-Up shakes, or pancakes for the family

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 2 bananas, roughly chopped
  • 750 ml (11⁄2 pt) low-fat or skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ
  • 6 tablespoons blueberry yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey

 Banana pancakes

  • 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 banana
  • 200 g (7 oz) plain (all-purpose) our
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 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.

Step 2. For the Little Ones, to the remaining smoothie mix, add the ingredients for the Banana Pancakes and puree until smooth.

Step 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.

Step 4. When the 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.
