Banana juice is a sweet and creamy combination of ripe banana, apple, honey and milk (or water). The honey brings its subtle flavor that compliments the smoothness of banana while milk brings down its excess thickness, making its more savory.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2 servings
2 large Bananas, sliced
1/2 Apple, cored and chopped
1 tablespoon Honey
1½ cups Milk or Water (milk is preferable)
Wash the bananas and apple, and pat dry them.
Peel the bananas and cut into slices. Peel and cut apple into halves. Take one portion and cut into medium pieces, keep another half for other use.
Add banana chunks, apple pieces and honey in a blender jar.
Add milk. (Use milk for better taste or use water to make it a low calorie juice).
Blend all ingredients together until smooth puree.
Check the consistency, if you feel that its too thick, then add more milk to dilute it and blend it again for 5 seconds. Pour it into serving glasses, garnish with a banana wheel and serve.
Tips and Variations:
Consume it immediately otherwise its taste changes and turns darker in color.
Do not use juicers to make it because banana contains very less amount of water compare to other fruits and it would clog the juicer.
Change the quantity of honey to sweeten it as per your taste.
Add pineapple juice in place of milk for variation.
Replace apple with carrot to make even healthier banana fruit juice.
Taste: Sweet and creamy taste of banana with apple and milk.
Serving Ideas: Make your breakfast tastier and healthier with it. Since it packs goodness of fruits and does not use sugar, it can be given to 1 year or older babies and kids too.
