Banana and Masa Harina Smoothie

Sometimes you just want the kind of breakfast you can whip up very quickly and sip while reading the newspaper , checking your emails or better still just sitting quietly and relaxing for a few minutes before the day gets busy.
I always keep some chopped up bananas in my freezer to make one ingredient banana icecream and recently discovered that I could also use them to make this nutritious smoothie.

Per person
1 tablespoon of Tio Pablo masa harina
1/2 cup of trim milk
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of brown sugar or maple syrup
1 frozen banana ( chopped into chunks)
1/2 cup of chilled full cream yoghurt ( I used Clearwater's with a touch of honey

Whisk the masa harina ,trim milk , brown sugar and cinnamon together until the mixture is smooth
Put in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high (whisking every 30 seconds) for 1 1/2 minutes or until it has thickened
Leave to cool until lukewarm
Put into in a blender or food processor with the still frozen chopped banana and the yoghurt.
Whizz together until smooth.
Stir with a cinnamon stick (optional)

Put into a tall glass and sip, or scoop out with a teaspoon.
