Banana Cinnamon Coconut Milk Frosty

Hello!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I thought I would share a little recipe with you. I don’t always make the most beautiful food or take the best photographs and by don’t always I mean never. I do like to keep things simple and use whole foods most of the time. So here we go!!!

In most of the blog world it is autumn or fall, but down here it is most definitely spring. So no pumpkins or squash in the recipe just lots of bananas. Bananas are cheap, plentiful and ripening really fast in the lovely spring heat we’ve been having. So this recipe is my answer for those days when you have lots of really ripe bananas and don’t feel like turning the oven on.

Here is what you need:

• 4 ripe bananas

• 1/4 cup of coconut milk

• Pinch (or several) of cinnamon

• Tablespoon of your favourite honey

• Dash of vanilla essence (optional)

Method:

Mix it all up in a blender for a smooth consistency or by hand if you enjoy a more chunky texture with larger pieces of banana.

Pour it in a freezer friendly bowl and freeze!

Take it out of the freezer about 15 minutes before you are ready to eat.

It is not the best looking frosty I’ve ever had and let’s be honest nothing beats ice cream. But it is rather tasty and it (sometimes) takes the edge off my sweet tooth.

What are your favourite banana recipes? Or are you not a big fan of bananas?

Lots of love,

Jess xxxooxx

  1. Bananas and coconut are SO delicious…even better when there is some chocolate added to the mix! Thanks for sharing this recipe- sounds yummy! Next time try blending frozen bananas instead- it’ll make it all the more creamier! My favorite thing to add bananas is peanut butter- so much better than the usual pb & j combo!

  2. I’m so not a banana person – I really want to be just not ! I’m so pedantic I can’t even cope if I know there is a little bit in a smoothie ( some fussy eaters never out grow it). My little boys love banana though so I’ll try it on them.

    • Thanks for the tip on freezing fruit! I feel like we’re costatnnly buying it and throwing it away – and forget about buying strawberries in the winter! I make smoothies every morning with fat free yogurt, strawberries, a banana, a kiwi, some pineapple (out of a can, I hate to admit!) and when the fruits aren’t quite ripe, I throw in a package or two of splenda. We use a margarita machine to do ours because the ice comes out like a snow cone!

      • Mmmmm….smoothies. When I woke up to a 65-degree house this morning, sheomow a smoothie seems a bit chilly, but I’m glad you’re enjoying them! We always used fruit juice instead of milk/ice cream, so that they’re healthier but still sweet. Orange juice works really well, or Juicy Juice. Yogurt is also a good nutrition-booster, as long as you use the unsweetened version. :)If you’re feeling really brave, there’s always Silk Tofu……

  3. I’ve got frozen bannaas and strawberries in my freezer right now. I love smoothies! The strawberry season is very short where I live, so I had about a month where I kept coming home with strawberries to freeze (and telling my husband “This is the last time! Really!”). I use the same method you described and it works wonderfully.
