Nut milks have become increasingly popular as a replacement for dairy. However, some companies have been cited for using fillers and even gut irritating carrageenan as a thickener in their nut milks. While cashew, almond and pistachio milks are all great additions to your morning breakfast muesli or smoothie, banana milk as them over a barrel.
Bananas are a known source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, Vitamin C and B-6. Add a date and aside from the vitamins and minerals just mentioned, you've added more fiber, calcium and iron. The milk also thickens up like a boss without the need for any artificial thickening agents. Can you say sweet?
You will need:
1 medium organic banana
1 cup distilled or pure water
1-2 organic Medjool dates
Dash of cinnamon (optional)
In a high speed blender, add water and cinnamon to the bananas and dates as illustrated below. Mix on medium, then high speed for one minute and serve!
