Banana Cereal with Banana Milk

I'm crazy for bananas! They are the most versatile fruit. You can literally make everything out of them; ice cream, smoothies, chips, cake, muffins, bread, a tonne of different raw desserts and even cereal and milk. 

Today, I'm sharing with you a very simple breakfast that I enjoy when I don't feel like a smoothie. What I love about banana cereal is that is it almost like a 'monomeal' - dependent on what you garnish with on top. 

A 'monomeal' is eating a single-ingredient of fruit as a meal. 

"At first attempt, the monomeal may seem "boring", because we are so accustomed to the stimulation of eating multi-ingredient meals. Over time, the simplicity of mono-fruit meals improves digestion and heightens your senses, so that you pick up the nuances of every bite of raw plant foods. As an added benefit, you will be able to better recognise when you are actually satisfied". (Dr. Douglas N. Graham, The 80/10/10 Diet). 

Banana Cereal with Banana Milk


6 bananas (leave 1/2 for banana milk), chopped into coins

1 cup almond or other plant-milk (macadamia is the best!)

1 - 2 fresh dates

Toppings: 1 - 2 chopped fresh dates, shredded coconut and coconut sugar, chia seeds



To make the banana milk, blend 1/2 a banana, dates and 1 cup of water in an Optimum or high powered blender until frothy. 

Pour over banana coins in a bowl. Top with your desired toppings - keeping in mind the more simple, the better on your digestion. Eat immediately and enjoy!
