What Is Banana Tea?
Banana tea is a popular drink made from bananas (or other fruit) and sugar or honey. It’s often served with ice cream. Some brands add milk, but most don’t. Bananas are high in potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure; they’re also rich in fiber and contain vitamins A, C, E and K. They’re low on calories so you’ll feel full after drinking it without feeling hungry afterward!
The taste is sweet and tangy. It’s very refreshing, especially when hot. It’s a great way to get your daily dose of potassium. If you have trouble keeping down water, try this one time treat!
