Creamy Banana Breakfast Smoothie

I got one wisdom teeth out yesterday. Ouch!
I’m still numb/sore and most of all irritated by the fact that I cannot eat solid food.
When you get a wisdom tooth pulled, the rule of thumb is to chew as little as possible, eat cold foods to soothe the mouth, and avoid seeds and hot spices (as they’ll irritate the wound).
In other words you can have smoothies, juices, and ice-cream during the first few days, and when the wound starts to heal you can start eating hot food such as soup, mashed potatoes, and other non-chewable things like hummus, applesauce, etc.
So, no solid food and no strenuous physical activity. Which begs the question: What the heck I am supposed to do then if I cannot eat and train?
I dunno, I dunno people

Creamy Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Anyways, since I cannot eat solid food here’s a recipe for a fantastic Banana Breakfast Smoothie.
Deliciously thick and creamy, this Creamy Banana Breakfast Smoothie tastes like a classic banana milkshake minus the ice-cream.
This is perfect for breakfast or for an afternoon snack.
Two whole bananas are used in this recipe — try use sweet and ripe bananas, an unripe one will taste chalky.
Then we add Greek yogurt, (almond) milk, and maple syrup.
Simply add everything into a blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy.

Delicious as it is, but you could always throw in more fruit or some greens to get extra nutrients.
The option are endless!

  1. I feel ya. I had four wisdom teeth (yes, all four) taken out at once. I literally could not eat for a week, haha!

  2. Ouch, getting teeth removed sucks! Though I admire your creativity with healthier foods, last time I had a tooth removed I shifted between mac and cheese or rice and curry sauce as my meals, haha! Smoothie looks delicious btw :)

  3. I'm supposed to get my out soon, all four of them! Hang in there. Random side question: Did they put you on antibiotics?

    1. haha I meant I'm supposed to get *mine* out soon. Typing is hard...

    2. I had all,four wisdom teeth out at once. They gave me prophylactic antibiotics and an antiseptic mouth wash. It was painful but I was meticulous with mouthwashing and had no problems. I lived on tomato soup and scrambled eggs. There was no way I could have sacked on a straw though that would have been agony ��

  4. As painful and annoying getting your wisdom teeth out is, at least you can drink this think, creamy smoothie to soothe your mouth and taste buds! Ain't nothin' better than a banana smoothie ;)

  5. Right there with ya. I had dental surgery on Wednesday and all I want is chia seeds and sriracha! The smoothie looks great and is super simple. Think I'll have that for breakfast tomorrow (without the straw because I'm not allowed straws).

  6. Had all 4 pulled at the same time years ago. Definitely NO straws; the sucking could cause more bleeding and pain. Jello and pudding the 1st day, then mashed potatoe's and soup the next day. By the 3rd day any soft foods, just remember to chew with your front teeth.
