If there are many of you out there like me who thought that banana flour tastes exactly like a banana and is set out to ruin every dessert, well it’s safe to say we’re all wrong. It tastes nothing like that! Banana flour is a gluten-free substitute to wheat flours and is made of unripened green bananas.

I cannot vouch for these seeing as this is my first time working with the ingredient but it is known to have the following benefits:
– It contains resistant starch, a type of carb that acts like fibre
– It helps control blood sugar levels
– Keeps us feeling fuller, longer
– Healthy way to carb cravings

Sounds good to me!

A good friend recently sent over a packet of Kadhali Raw Banana Flour to test out recipes – http://www.mystiqueconfections.com/kadhali/

I’m still trying to perfect a dessert recipe so do bear with me until I can come up with one but in the meantime, here’s a delicious fruit smoothie. It’s extremely filling and is a great option either an hour before a workout, or immediately after one.

Ingredients:

3 tbsp banana flour
1/2 cup diced strawberries
1/4 cup sliced bananas
1/4 cup mixed berries
1 tbsp chia seeds
6-8 cubes ice
3/4 cup chilled almond milk/skimmed milk

Method:

  1. Blend all the ingredients together and consume chilled! That’s all !
