Switch to almond milk, now we’re all on banana milk » ​​Simple and Healthy Recipe! ✅

In my opinion, bananas are one of nature’s perfect foods. My day wouldn’t be complete without a banana or two. I eat at least one every morning before training and sometimes after too.

If you’re looking for a super easy and nutritious milk alternative, making banana milk is worth it. The best part? It’s as simple as turning on the blender.

How to make banana milk

Banana milk is incredibly easy to make, possibly the simplest of all non-dairy milks. All you need is a banana, 8 ounces of water, and a blender.

You can also add a bit of vanilla, a pinch of sea salt, and cinnamon if you want to go a step further. Also, banana milk lends itself to a lot of variations – strawberries and chocolate + peanut butter are my favorites).

The health benefits of banana milk

Bananas contain a good amount of vitamin B6, as well as being a good source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, biotin, and trace minerals like copper and manganese. [source].

The potassium in bananas provides cardiovascular benefits, helping the heart function normally and lowering blood pressure. That potassium is also great for preventing muscle cramps, making it a favorite with athletes and anyone who needs to replenish their electrolytes.

While bananas are sweet, they’re actually on the lower end of the glycemic index (unless they’re very ripe). A regular banana contains about 105 calories, 3 grams of dietary fiber, and about 14 grams of carbohydrates. The fiber in less-ripe bananas works as a prebiotic, providing beneficial gut bacteria with something nutritious to stay and grow.

How to use banana milk

Banana milk offers all the benefits of bananas, but in liquid form, and is a great substitute for milk and non-dairy beverages. Stir a little to drink before or after a workout.

Bonus: Bananas are dirt cheap, making this one of the cheapest plant-based milks.

Banana milk can’t replace milk in all uses, but it doesn’t hurt to try! Some of my favorite uses are as a liquid to cook oatmeal (tastes like banana bread!) and other porridges, with overnight oats, cold cereal, or granola, as a standalone drink, to make pudding, chia, in smoothies (to make banana milk means you’re halfway there!) and for use on pancakes.

One thing I have noticed is that like whole bananas, banana milk turns brown quickly. This can be prevented or slowed down by adding a little fresh lemon juice or citric acid. Milk is best the day of preparation, although it will last several days in the refrigerator.
