Brighten up your day with this delicious banana milk recipe!

Spring is finally here and although a majority of us are still practicing social distancing and remaining quarantined, we are still trying to find ways to enjoy the beginning of this warm weather season. My favorite way to relieve some mental stress and enjoy the beautiful weather is to curl up on my deck with a good book, soak up some sun and sip on some homemade banana milk!

I found this recipe on youtube and you can click here for the link to that video. I of course made it to my own liking but you can go ahead and choose whichever way you think will taste better for you!


Prep Time: 5-10 mins. tops! Super easy to make.



Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 4 cups of almond milk (original)
  • 1 can (12oz) of evaporated milk
  • 1 can (14oz) of sweetened condensed milk
  • about 1 tsp of ground cinnamon or to taste
  • 2-3 tsp of vanilla extract

First peel and slice up your 2 bananas then place inside of your blender along with the almond milk, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon.

Blend on low for about 30 seconds or until fully mixed to your preference (I like having small banana chunks in mine!) then pour into a large pitcher.

Add your can of evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk and stir until perfectly mixed. I usually taste it to see if it’s sweet enough or to my liking. If not I will add more cinnamon or another teaspoon of vanilla. This drink usually tastes so much better the very next day!

That’s it! Once you know what you’re doing it probably doesn’t even take 5 minutes to make. For asthetic purposes I like to add some cinnamon on top and swirl it around a bit. All that’s left to do after that is pour yourself a glass, curl up in your favorite spot and enjoy!

Favorite Tea This Fall Season

By no means am I an expert on tea and let’s be honest.. I don’t even drink caffeine (for reasons). However, Fall season is well under way and there are a few flavors that i’ve been loving this season so I thought I would share!

(Tea pouring asmr anyone?)
  • Ginger & Probiotics – It sounds really healthy (and it is!) but its super delicious as well. Not as good as actually making ginger tea yourself (which I recommend everyone try) but with a little honey it’s definitely a nice little morning go to. It’s also not as strong as homemade ginger tea if you’re not a huge fan of ginger.
  • Honey Vanilla Chamomile – This one is SO yummy! Just the right amount of sweetness without being too much and will give you all of the Autumn vibes your heart desires! Also, does chamomile make anyone else sleepy or is it just me?
  • Gingerbread Spice – This one is my absolute favorite! It is definitely true to it’s name. Tastes just like gingerbread spices. Add a little honey and it’s almost like you’re actually eating gingerbread cookies!
  • Caramel Apple Dream – If you love apples, this is definitely one to try. It tastes more like apple with the tiniest hint of caramel flavor but it’s still delicious. It’s a little on the sweeter side though and could probably be a really good flaver to try for the warmer months as well.
