A refreshing blend of coconut and banana. Quick and easy to make, vegan if you’d like.
It’s best if you use a smoothie attachment for your blender or food processor. You’d prefer little to no air inside the container, otherwise the mixture become frothy. If you have a larger blender and no small containers, you won’t be able to avoid the airy milk. It still tastes great, and some people even prefer it.
Use any milk you’d like. I find cashew and soy milk work well. It’d be redundant to use coconut milk, but hey, it works. You can also add more coconut to get a stronger coconut flavour.
I often have “fresh” coconut around, or rather a drinkable coconut with the hard layer of coconut inside. Making drinks is one way to use this coconut. If you don’t have this fresh coconut, you can use dried flakes, or even the powdered coconut, to save yourself the 10s of blending effort.
Enjoy your drink.
