Malted Banana Speculoos Smoothie

Try saying that when you are three sheets to the wind!!
It’s funny how some of the things you decide to make when you are a food blogger, are dictated by the ingredients you have lying about and/or used recently. And this recipe is exactly one of these!

You may have seen recently my malt and chocolate cookies, and the frosting and blondies that I had incorporated the Speculoos spread, I bought recently, into. Also, I had a couple of ripening bananas lying about. What could I make using the Horlicks, banana and Speculoos, I pondered and the answer seemed kinda obvious. Why not make something akin to a peanut butter banana milkshake?

I decided to use fat free plain yogurt. so this was slightly healthier, and I could get away with calling it a smoothie!

Yield: 500 ml of Smoothie

One banana, peeled and chopped
250 ml of fat free plain yogurt
120 ml milk (any type)
1 tablespoon Malted Drink mix (such as Horlicks)
3 tablespoons Speculoos

In a food blender, add all the ingredients. Blitz until the mixture is completely smooth. Pour into a drinking receptacle of your choice and enjoy!

Of course, you could add ice to this, if it was a hot day, and if you can’t get the Speculoos spread, Peanut Butter would work just as well.


  1. Sounds great - and I love your presentation! Those stripy straws take me back to my childhood in the 70s when we were all told there was a Humphrey about!

    1. I remember biting on the ends of those straws then getting frustrated when nothing would be able to get through them!

  2. Yum! what a great flavour combo! plus I love the stripey straw!

    1. It was drunk in a flash Gem, it was that good!
