This Banana Almond Coconut tea is almost like a warm smoothie or like a chai latte. It’s the perfect thing to drink if eating solids is not on the menu, or if you are trying to squeeze in a few extra calories. It’s best if you drink it hot as it’s made so feel free to cut the recipe in half. The ginger and honey will soothe your throat and stomach, while the vanilla pleases your sweet tooth! Enjoy this super soothing hot drink on a cold winter day.
- 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. Serve the smoothie warm.

Ann's Tips and Tricks
Ann’s Tip: if you do not have an emersion blender. Allow the smoothie to cool slightly before blending in a standard blender. When blending warm items, only fill the blender half way, to avoid overflow.
