Breakfast Frozen Banana Smoothie
Breakfasts, when you live with endometriosis, can be tricky. A lot of us suffer from frequent nausea, so having an appetite early in the morning can be a challenge. In my case, anything with added sugar or gluten causes me the worst case of endo belly, so breakfast cereals are a no-go.
One day, I began making frozen smoothies, and especially in the summer, they are wonderfully tasty and kind to my stomach. This is a super simple recipe, one that doesn't even require one of those fancy bullet-blenders. All you have to do is use whatever mixer or blender you have around, and just ensure you blitz the mixture for a really long time. You end up with a super nutritious and refreshing drink that feels like a treat.
