Is Banana Milk the Next Big Thing in Alternative Milk?
You might have already tried almond or soy milk, but what about banana milk? Yes, apparently you can make alternative milk out of a banana. A quick search on Google reveals a few homemade recipes, but a new startup — Banana Wave — appears to be the only commercial banana milk that’s picking up steam.
The beverage created by Banana Wave is made from bananas, grains, and seeds. One (eight-ounce) glass of the alternative milk contains as much potassium as a small banana. It can be used just like any milk alternative: consumed by itself or in cereal, and in any of your baking needs.
Banana Wave was launched in 2013 by H.E. Neter Kush Ben Alkebulan; his fiancé, Trendolyn Hopkins; and his mother, Claudette Patron. They were recently picked up by all the Whole Foods in Florida. Banana Wave also has plans to be in Walmart as early as 2017.
