I never knew that milk could be made from bananas, but guess what, it can! I was recently sent samples of a new milk to hit the Denver market called Sir Bananas Bananamilk. Yep, it’s true and even better, it’s delicious. I was excited to see that Colorado was added to one of the 4 areas that Sir Bananas can now be found. To see if it is available in your area, you can visit this link.
Sir Bananas comes in two different flavors. The first is Bananamilk and the second is a Chocolate Bananamilk. Either can be enjoyed on their own or in your favorite recipe such as smoothies or Bananamilk Pancakes. Stay tuned, as I will be sharing the recipe for Bananamilk Pancakes below. You won’t want to miss this one!
From the aspect of a mom, I love that Sir Bananas has essential nutrients in each 8 oz serving.
- 7 grams of protein
- Vitamin B12
- Potassium (a whopping 20% bananas in every serving)
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D
- Riboflavin (B2)
However, I was a little surprised to see 24 grams of sugar in each 8 oz serving as well. For someone that is trying to cut sugars out of their diet, this may not be the way to go on a regular basis. Sadly for me, I am one of those people. My daughter on the other hand begs me for a glass of the “new” milk. Because sugar from bananas is mostly naturally occurring, I don’t mind giving her a glass of Bananamilk daily.
I also use it in my shakes once or twice a week for a special treat instead of adding a fresh banana. I love the flavor of a banana in my smoothie, but for some reason bananas tend to go bad in my house before I get the chance to use them. Sir Bananas is a great way for me to get the flavor of bananas in my shake without the waste.
Now for the Bananamilk Pancakes recipe I promised you guys. They have a great flavor with the slightest hint of bananas! It’s the perfect way to start your morning:)
