I Made A Thing: ANZAC Biscuit Smoothie

I am a big lover of cookbooks, as you all know. There are very clever people who have created recipes and put them in a book (my preferred form compared to online, I just love a cookbook) for me to access their wisdom and make delicious food. I do not have that wisdom. But, occasionally, I make something. Nothing fancy or complicated, but still something that I had to put a little bit of thought into. So here is a thing that I made!

It is ANZAC day here today. Traditionally I should be eating ANZAC biscuits, but I didn't get any vegan ones and I couldn't be bothered making them. So I made it into a smoothie. The photo is pretty average, I know. I should have made more effort to make it prettier, but I had just come home from 90 minutes of very sweaty and hot bikram yoga, so I just wanted to eat. Or drink, I guess. Anyway, no mason jar or perfectly messy overflow here.

ANZAC Biscuit Smoothie


Ingredients:

3/4 cup oat milk (or your favourite non-dairy milk)
1 frozen banana in chunks
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 AU TBS shredded coconut (or 1TBS plus 1 tsp for my US friends)
1 heaping teaspoon golden syrup
Pinch of salt


Directions:

Put in blender. Blend until smooth. Put in glass. Drink!

You could very easily pretty this up by adding some toasted oats and coconut on the top, or even crumble a bit of ANZAC biscuit on top!

I don't know how common golden syrup is outside of Australia, but I would definitely recommend it above other sweeteners for the authentic ANZAC biscuit taste.

So there you go. I made a thing! I may very occasionally make other things and share them with you.

  3. Golden syrup is super common in the UK and I think not so common in the rest of Europe or the US. I can't believe I didn't get an Anzac biscuit - fail! Also, hugs. Sahara was such a cutie.

    1. Sweaty workouts require a cooling smoothie when the weather is hot!
