Sourdough Pancakes with Banana Smoothie

There is nothing better than a breakfast with homemade pancakes.  I have this recipe that came with my sourdough starter.  I also added a banana smoothie to go along with this breakfast  The smoothie is also a great way to get a protein filled breakfast if you are in a hurry.

Sourdough Pancakes

Combine 1/2 cup fresh starter, 2 cups warm water and 2-1/2 cups flour.  Set aside in a warm place until bubbly.
To this batter add:
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
Add 2 beaten eggs and thin the batter with milk to desired consistency.  Add 1/4 cup of batter to a hot skillet and cook until bubbly and flip over and continue to cook until done.  Serve with maple syrup or your favorite fruit.

Banana Smoothie

2 ripe bananas, peeled and frozen (this is great if you have ripe bananas and don't know what to do with them, just peel and freeze and then you are all set for a smoothie)
2 cups milk (you can any milk you choose, I have used soy as well as cow's milk)
8 ice cubes
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.  Will make 2 big glasses of smoothie.
