When I prepare banana milkshake, I always make it with coconut milk or almond milk. According to ayurveda, the combination of bananas and dairy milk do not go well and this can lead to toxins, laziness, indigestion and slowing down of mind. In short, it creates heaviness in the body.

The banana shake recipe posted here is prepared with thin homemade coconut milk And surprisingly it is much lighter and soothing than banana milkshakes made with milk.

I don’t know what is ayurveda’s stand on using almond milk or coconut milk with banana but I definitely find it much healthier and better way of making banana milkshake than with cow’s milk. Do give it a try.

This banana milkshake is good for children and grown ups who have lactose intolerance. If you want to make the banana milkshake more easy to digest then use bananas which are more ripe. You can also use a pinch of cardamom or cinnamon powder to flavor the milkshake.

How to make banana shake

1. Peel and chop 3 medium sized bananas. Add the chopped bananas in a mixer or blender jar.
