kerravonsen: tea, nuts and noodle soup (Food)

I came back from the doctor's appointment after eleven, turned on the heater, and the temperature inside according to its thermostat, was 10C. Which is COLD for an Aussie. And though I pottered around and had lunch after that, I was still hankering for a warm and filling drink, something which wasn't cocoa or tea or soup or coffee. So I made a warmshake (which is a hot/warm milkshake).

Bananaloaf Warmshake

(no actual banana-loaves were harmed in this experiment)

Ingredients:

  • 100ml quick-oats
  • 300ml milk
  • 1-2 bananas (depending on size of bananas - I used 2 small ones)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 whole cloves (because I didn't have any ground cloves; if you have ground cloves, add a pinch)
  • sweetener to taste (optional -- depends on how ripe your bananas are)

Instructions:

  1. Put the oats and the milk in a microwave-safe container and cook in microwave for 3-4 minutes, or until it just starts to boil over (that is, it hasn't boiled over yet, but it is nearly there). This isn't my carelessness, this is the test I use for cooking porridge, and since this is a super-milky porridge, I figured that would do.
  2. Put the banana and the milk mixture and the spices into a tall milkshake-sized container and puree with a stick blender (or put into a conventional blender and puree with that)
  3. Taste-test, and add sweetener if desired.
  4. Drink and enjoy!

I call it a "bananaloaf" warmshake because the oats make it loaf-like, more filling, and probably better for you.
