So today I have a far more natural banana milk for you, because it’s literally two ingredients – bananas and water. It’s delicious, banana-y and perfect for those who are looking for an alternative to nut milks.
It’s also healthy as bananas are full of potassium, electrolytes and other nutrients. But remember that if you do use banana milk, don’t top your cereal with banana slices. Bananas are naturally sweet for a reason, they’re full of sugar and carbs (not a bad thing, but something you don’t want to go overboard on), so opt for a variety of other toppings.
When it comes to non-dairy milks there are lots of options available. But most, including the ever-popular almond milk, are made from nuts.
But good news – I have a new option for you and one you can make at home (that’s super cheap) and takes 30 seconds – banana milk.
Easy Banana Milk Recipe
Out of curiosity, I just looked up the ingredients for that old Nestle Banana Quik product and it’s literally sugar, chemicals and emulsifiers (ugh, no surprise, eh?).
Banana milk is a delicious nut-free, dairy-free milk alternative. With only two-ingredients it’s quick and easy to whip up at home. All you need is bananas, water and a blender.
If you’ve never made homemade banana milk before, here are a few tips:
A Nut-Free Dairy-Free Milk Option
If you’ve been following Downshiftology for any length of time you know that my favorite nut milk is cashew milk. Especially as it’s so easy to make at home and there’s no need to strain it. But still, there’s nuts. Oat milk and hemp milk are delicious nut-free options, but today I have something even easier – banana milk!
So what’s someone with a nut allergy or sensitivity to do? Well, you could drink coconut milk, flax milk, hemp milk, quinoa milk or oat milk. Of course, there’s also soy milk, but I don’t recommend soy milk due to it’s GMO and pesticide-laden base, along with high estrogenic qualities. There are also some newer plant-based milks on the market, made from pea protein, though I’ve yet to give those a try.

Banana Milk is a hybrid weed that was created by Alien Labs. Its parent strains are Banana OG and Purple Punch F2, which gives it a very fruity lineage. Other than its taste, the Banana Milk strain is also known for its moderate THC content that rests between 18% and 22%. The CBD content in this weed is low, while the CBG content can be as high as 1.83%. Keeping this CBD/CBG/THC ratio in mind, it may not be a good idea for complete beginners to smoke some of its buds as it can produce quite a heavy high.
Because of these effects, this strain can be great for treating chronic pain and depression. It can also be helpful for people suffering from insomnia. Like most other hybrid strains, Banana Milk can also lead to headaches and paranoia if not used carefully.
Effects of the Strain
This cannabis is known mostly for its taste. It has a very fruity flavor that combines the tastes of berries, bananas, and grapes with some flowery notes. The aroma is similar to the taste – mostly fruity with some flowery hints. This combination of taste and aroma makes Banana Milk a very popular strain among cannabis connoisseurs.
It is not difficult to grow this plant from its seeds. The flowering time is between 75 and 83 days, and it can be grown indoors or outdoors. The yield outdoors is better than indoors, so if you have space, plant the seeds outside.
