Did you hear of the new plant-based milk trend in town? Banana milk. Yep, it's a thing. People are buying banana milk in cartons. Why? I'm really not sure when it's so easy and so cheap to make at home! No really, like 2 ingredients, press a button on a blender easy.
Did you guess the 2 ingredients yet? Bananas and water. I knew you would you clever minx you!
I came across this idea a while ago but thought I shouldn't bother posting such an easy recipe that everyone could figure out. But then, one fine morning I woke up, poured myself a big bowl of cereal, only to discover that I was out of soy milk. Heartbroken momentarily, my mental lightbulb turned on and I remembered banana milk!
So I whipped up a batch, added a touch of cinnamon for some extra oh la la, and poured it over my cereal. The result: the most delicious bowl of cereal ever!!!!
So delicious and takes about 10 seconds to make, this 2 ingredient recipe is a good one to have on hand for emergencies or just for enjoying banana-y goodness. It's not just for cereal either, this banana milk would be delish on oatmeal, for dipping cookies, in baked goods, in hot chocolate, to make fudgesicles, or basically anywhere that could use a touch of sweet creaminess.
To make Banana Milk: grab a banana. I know, complicated stuff here. The riper the banana, the sweeter your milk will be so I always love when my bananas get super spotty.
Peel your banana (told you, super complicated), and add it to the blender with water. You could also add in vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, or any other flourishes you think would be yummy.
Blend until smooth and creamy. For a thicker banana milk, use less water. For a thinner milk, use more. That's it. Enjoy!
A great recipe to have on hand for when you run out of milk. Tastes great on cereal, oatmeal, for dipping cookies, in baked goods, in hot chocolate, or anywhere that could use a touch of sweet creaminess.
- 1 banana (the riper it is the sweeter the milk will be)
- 1 cup water
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
Add the banana and water to a blender. If using, also add in any of the optional add-ins. Blend until smooth and creamy. Feel free to add more or less water for a thinner or thicker consistency.
