Swedish Tarts Breakfast smoothie

Swedish tarts is (as the name suggests) a Swedish inspired café known for its diverse and exciting breakfast menu. Potato pancakes with bacon, breakfast flatbreads and mushrooms with polenta are all featured on this vintage inspired café’s menu. A beachside feel, you can find Swedish Tarts at Henley Beach and Semaphore.

Mr Bball and I went for a nice beach walk followed be breakfast at Swedish Tarts – a common weekend occurrence. This time it was a hot day so I opted for a breakfast smoothie instead of my usual large, extra hot, skim flat white. The ingredients:
  • Banana
  • Yoghurt
  • Berries
  • LSA
  • Apple juice.


The good:
Tart, refreshing and healthy. Not creamy like I expect of a banana and yoghurt breakfast smoothie but perfect for a 38 degree day. Its initial bite is followed by the natural sweetness of the banana. Plus the rich purple colour makes me want to go back for more.
The addition of LSA, linseed (flaxseed) sunflower seed and almond, means I've had my nutrients for the day :-) LSA is a great source of:
  • protein
  • fibre
  • omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids
  • vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamin)
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  • magnesium
  • manganese
  • calcium
  • phosphorus
  • potassium
  • selenium
  • copper
  • zinc.*

I was even able to skip my morning coffee. For a few hours anyway...

The bad:
Be prepared it does have berry pips that can make some mouthfuls chewy and unpleasant if you prefer a smoother consistency.

The ugly:
You will get pips in your teeth - so it may not be a first date drink.
My farewell fun yoghurt fact… There is no need for breath mints when frozen yoghurt is involved. Have a scoop before your next close encounter as eating yoghurt has been shown to improve bad breath.”*
