ALMOND BANANA DRINK--RM#2

DAY21 OF RM#2
Photobucket

We usually have a small portion of either of these fruits ---Oranges, Nectarines, Apples, Mango , Watermelon, after our daily dinner,but never this high sucrose content fruit.I was so much used to eating the small variety bananas(called as chekkarakeli) we usually get in Andhra side and never even considered have one(the normal sized banana) once in a while.I dont know why am so obsessed with those small varieties....But that sure is the difference in the taste that keeps me away from the normal ones.Somehow i was attracted to these greenish-yellow spotless bananas and madethis drink,baked muffins before they turn black.

INGREDIENTS:

Banana----------------1 ripe but still yellow!!

Almonds meal---------4 tsp or 10 almonds whole

Milk------------------1 cup(Boiled and cooled)

Cinnamon-------------1/2 tsp

Honey----------------3-4 tsp(or more if required)

Vanila extract--------1/4 tsp

DIRECTIONS:

1.Use almond meal or microwave the whole almonds for 4 mins and peel the skin.Grind to a coarse paste.

2.Add banana slices and blend till nice smooth paste.

3.Add milk,vanila extract,honey and cinnamon.Blend together again for a minute.

4.Transfer to serving glass with ice cubes or refrigerate.
