If you don’t have time to sit down to a real breakfast, the next best thing is a breakfast fruit shake. Banana is an especially good ingredient, because it makes the shake thick. With so many interesting fruit juices and fruit juice blends available, you can use the basic proportions here and try this shake with other flavors. For an easy flavor twist, use maple syrup as the sweetener instead of honey. Or use one of the darker honeys available, like buckwheat.
1/2 cup tangerine juice
1 medium banana, cut into chunks
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ice cubes
In a blender, combine the tangerine juice, banana, honey, and vanilla. Add the ice and blend until thick and smooth. Makes 1 serving
