A friend from Manitoba, Canada posted a link on facebook to a recipe that gave me the idea of combining two of my father-in-law’s favourite foods; bananas and milk, and so i tried. He LOVED it!
2 cups of milk
1 banana (unmashed)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
Bring the milk and banana to just past warm – don’t really want it to boil or it gets a funny sour taste. Some don’t mind that though. Put a lid on the pot and let it heat through and simmer 10-15 minutes. Remove the banana or pour through a sieve or cheesecloth into heat proof jar like a canning jar. Add the cinnamon powder, but don’t shake a jar with hot liquid, it’ll spew out from under the cap. Stir the cinnamon in when you are ready to enjoy.
Remember, i use canning jars with screw on one-piece lids to make the transport of broth, soups, and drinks easier.
This is another of the liquid diet recipes for helping my father-in-law heal from surgery, so use all organic ingredients (even if the banana comes from Colombia) including raw milk from your neighbour’s grassfed dairy.
