How To Make Banana Milk At Home
You will need the following ingredients:
- One cup of water
- One frozen ripe banana
- A pinch of cinnamon
- A pinch of Himalayan salt
First, add the frozen banana and water in a blender. Pulse until the banana starts to melt in the water. Once you’ve done that add the cinnamon and salt in the blender. Start blending until you get a liquid and smooth mixture that resembles milk. Afterward, strain the liquid through gauze to remove any small particles from the banana. You can use this milk in preparation of smoothies, oatmeal, or you can pour it into your morning coffee.
Before you freeze the bananas slice them into pieces because it will be easier for you to blend them.

Ripe bananas are the best choice for this recipe. They will provide natural sweetness to the milk. But if you can’t find any or you just can’t wait for the bananas to ripen you can use any natural sweetener such as honey, maple syrup, stevia, dates paste etc.
You can add vanilla extract, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, chia or flax seeds to enrich the texture and flavor of this milk. The combinations are endless, depending on your taste.
