Banana CocoNut Mylk

This morning when I walked to work it was a few degrees below zero, in other words, cold as F*&%! (You know it's REALLY cold when you can no longer breathe through your nose and your teeth hurt down to the roots when you breathe through your mouth :)

And after a day's work in the coolers and freezer, I am still cold. So, instead of a Green Drink I just blended up an AMAZING nut mylk creation which I warmed up a little bit on the stove top. As long as the heat is on low and you remove the mylk when it's warm to the touch, it will still be raw, never having exceeded 100 or so degrees.

If you don't have a nut mylk bag, I suggest purchasing one off of Elaina Love's Pure Joy Planet web store. Google it since I can't get the link function to work :)

The recipe is as follows...

Banana CocoNut Mylk
4 cups fresh almond mylk
2 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon coconut butter
smidgen coconut extract (optional)

To make the almond milk, simply soak 1 cup of raw almonds in purified water for 4 hours or longer, then drain & rinse. Next, put them in the Vitamix (or other blender) along with 4 cups of purified water and blend for about 1 minute. Strain the liquid through the nut mylk bag, removing the pulp.

Transfer your nut mylk back into the blender, add the bananas, coconut butter and coconut extract and blend briefly until smooth.

If you want to heat the mylk up a bit, as described above, go for's most certainly delicious on a cold, cold day!!

Peace yall~
