Blended with bananas, almond milk and coconut milk, this tea is almost like a rich chai latte or bubble tea. With ginger and honey to soothe your throat and stomach, it’s the perfect thing... to sip on if experiencing nausea or on a bland diet. It’s also better than water if you are trying to squeeze in a few extra calories. Best served fresh and hot — excellent for a cold winter day. If you’re making it just for yourself, feel free to cut the recipe in half.
In a small pot over medium heat, bring 1 quart of water to a simmer. Add tea bags and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until tea is dark brown.
Add almond milk, coconut milk, ground ginger, honey and vanilla to the tea and stir until well combined. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Add bananas to the tea mixture and puree with an immersion blender (see Chef Tips). Serve warm.
If you do not have an immersion blender, allow the tea to cool slightly before adding it to a standard blender. When blending hot liquids in a blender, it’s best to only fill the blender halfway and to hold the lid down with a towel, just in case the steam causes the lid to pop off.
