Ingredients

Instructions

  • Put the water and cinnamon stick in a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
  • Slice off the ends of the banana and put it into the boiling water. You can choose to peel the banana if you prefer. However, the peel has many nutrients. 
  • Let the banana boil for 10 minutes and then, remove from heat. 
  • Place a mesh strainer above your favorite cup and pour the content. You can keep the boiled banana aside to use it for porridge or chia puddings. 
  • Add honey to taste. It is a wonderfully relaxing drink to have pre-bedtime.

Notes

You always want to use organic bananas as there won't be pesticide residue on the peel. While this pesticide isn't deadly, it can result in some toxicity within the body, so it is best if you avoid that possibility. 
You can also use cinnamon powder instead of a cinnamon stick. Add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder after the banana tea is brewed.
