WARM BANANA MILK - without milk

I've recently been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, which is one of the Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD)

I can not eat any fruit at the moment, except bananas. I know and I feel that they are easily digestible. I still have to do a bit of research about their properties regarding our digestive system... 

This recipe is very simple. It is nice and soothing, when you need something warming, comforting, nourishing and above all liquid if your gut can not tolerate any solid or irritating food. 

If you don't have any issue, it is nice too ! 

You will need a blender.


- 1 banana (ripe like on the picture)
- 1 cup 1/2 of filtered water 
- 1 vanilla pod
- 2 desert spoons of coconut cream ( I like the brand Niulife, it comes in a glass jar)

- Peel the skin off the banana and slice it into small pieces
- Put the pieces into a pan filled with 1 cup 1/2 of filtered water 
- Add the vanilla pod
- Heat up the pan ( low heat) for 5 minutes. It should not boil. 
- The banana should look softer 
- Remove the vanilla pod and pour the content of the pan into your blender
- Add the coconut cream
- Blend for 15 seconds

Enjoy ! 

If you've got a small appetite, just chill and appreciate it either cold or warm ( reheat it). 

Another tip : I have used the leftover into cooked white rice, to make a warm rice porridge. Yummy!
