Making banana milk ahead of time is a great option for those who have busy mornings or are on-the-go. You can make a big batch of it and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Stir well before serving as separation may occur.

For those who like their banana milk cold, add ice cubes to keep it chilled. Alternatively, you can freeze your banana milk in ice cube trays and use them later to create smoothies or frozen treats like dairy-free ice cream.

If you prefer warm banana milk, heat up your desired amount on the stove over medium heat until warmed through. Do not boil as this may affect its texture and flavor.

Reheating banana milk in the microwave is also possible but it may alter its creamy texture. If you’re going to do this, heat it for only 30 seconds at a time on medium heat and stir in between to prevent clumping.

Whether you prefer it hot or cold, banana milk tastes great as is and pairs well with other flavors such as chocolate, sesame, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Add a splash to your morning coffee or tea for some extra flavor and nutrition!

Now that you know how to make banana milk, it’s important to have a few tips to ensure the best possible results. These tips will help you create a smooth and creamy banana milk every time.

5. Experiment with other plant-based milks: While almond milk is popular for making dairy-free milks at home, you can also try using other plant-based milks such as coconut milk or oat milk for a creamier texture.

6. Adjust water amount: The amount of water you use depends on how thick or thin you want your banana milk to be, so adjust accordingly.

7. Nut or non-nut variations: If you have nut allergies or don’t like the taste of nut-based milks, feel free to use any other non-dairy alternative such as oat, rice, coconut or even soy milk.

8. Serve immediately or store properly: Banana milk is best served immediately after blending but if you’d like to store it for later, keep it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create delicious and healthy banana milk every time!

Banana Milk (Raw, Dairy Free)

Banana Milk (Raw, Dairy Free) Recipe

Africa has a long history of banana cultivation. Phytolith discoveries in Cameroon dating to the first millennium BCE triggered an as yet unresolved debate about the date of first cultivation in Africa. There is linguistic evidence that bananas were known in Madagascar around that time. The earliest prior evidence indicates that cultivation dates to no earlier than late 6th century AD. It is likely, however, that bananas were brought at least to Madagascar if not to the East African coast during the phase of Malagasy colonization of the island from South East Asia c400CE. Here we have a simple, healthy drink made with just 1 banana. Idea from The 80/10/10 Diet by Dr. Douglas N. Graham, a cool raw food book.
