Hello Friends! I have an exciting post today to share with you – it’s about Banana Milk. I first tried it was last year and let me tell you, if you haven’t tried it yet you’re missing out big time.

All the information is in the video above, but essentially, Banana Milk is a great milk alternative. I like to use it when I want a change to almond milk, but if you have a nut allergy and are dairy free, this could be of true great use to you.

Although banana milk isn’t technically milk, it looks like it, tastes like milk and can be used just like milk in many recipes. Best part – the amount of nutrients!

Banana milk is, thanks to the banana, loaded with potassium, Vitamin C, Fibre and Vitamin B6. It’s such a great start to your morning, and I would highly recommend trying it in your coffee – hello Banana Caramel Coffee!! Oh my gosh, YUM.

Let’s talk flavour. It has a creamy, very subtle see flavour. I haven’t had cow’s milk in ages so I can’t compare, but it definitely tasted very close to my almond milk. Now the additives. You can “spice it up” as I like to call it.

Nutmeg, cinnamon, cacao powder, vanilla extract and turmeric are my favourite add-ins. They all add their own divine flavours and nutrients to enhance this already nutritious drink. If you’re feeling daring, you can add them all! Think of it as a banana version to my favourite turmeric milk drink.a glass full of banana milk on a cloth.

Drink up! Let me know what you try this in!

How to Make Banana Milk (Vegan, Paleo, 5 Minutes!)

  • Blend the ingredients in a blender. If you want it thicker, add more bananas, or a frozen banana.
This recipe is vegan, paleo and gluten free. I recommend making this fresh when you need it as nutrients become to get lost after a while of it sitting out.

  1. Bet it’s delicious as it sounds like a lighter version of banana smoothie…

  2. Whaattttt? How come I’ve never heard of this before? Banana milk is a genius idea! Making this tomorrow for my smoothie 🙂

    Definitely hesitant to try this one – I’m not a huge fan of bananas. BUT I think it’s the ice cold water that makes it awesome!! I really loved it. It was light and refreshing and it’s an awesome way for me to get a piece of fruit in without having to actually eat a banana. (I love bananas sliced or topped with PB but for some reason a whole banana at once is too much lol)

    Thanks for the recipe!

      Hey Sara,

      I’m SO glad to hear – yay!! I’m loving it also over here. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback!!

    Hi. I made this now and it’s pretty good but the spices are too much. I have always suspected my “teaspoon” is huge! But the spice quantity should be halved with my set of spoons. And I added some raw honey.

    I didn’t have the cocoa, but the vanilla was a nice addition! It’s the nutmeg that’s too strong as I am savouring it in my coffee now. I can taste it a little too much. But otherwise I really like it. MMMMM!

    • Jessica says:

      I”m so happy to hear Kristina!! Thanks so much for your feedback – nutmeg is a pretty strong spice so I’ve cut it down from ½ teaspoon to ¼ teaspoon! So glad you enjoyed!!

  7. Svetla says:

    How long can I keep the milk in the fridge ?

    • Gavin | Jessica in the Kitchen says:

      Hi Svetla! The milk lasts in the fridge for a day but its best used fresh before losing the nutrients. It will also separate so you will have to shake it to get a homogenous mixture again.
