The fruit banana is a popular fruit for vegans and vegetarians, and the fruits are usually a small part of the diet for many people.
They’re also a popular vegetable, since they’re rich in vitamin C and fibre.
But while you can eat fruit on its own, there’s a whole other world of fruits out there for veg lovers.
“Vegan banana,” says Kristy Phelan, an organic food educator and author of Vegan Banana Recipes.
“When I think about vegan banana, I think of the banana from India and what they call the chana dal, which is a kind of sweet banana, but also a very good one.”
Vegan Banana Recipes What you need: 1 banana (1 to 2 inches in diameter) 1/2 avocado (2 to 4 inches) 1 ripe mango 1/4 cup water (about 1 cup) Salt and pepper (to taste) A vegan version of a vegan banana with a few tweaks (this is not vegan): Add a splash of water to the banana to keep it from sticking to the spoon.
Add the water to a small bowl.
Mash the banana, and place the mixture in a medium saucepan with the water.
Let the mixture cook for about 5 minutes, until the banana starts to break down.
Drain the water from the banana.
Drain in a colander, rinse under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels.
Make your own vegan banana recipe: If you can’t find the chia seeds, use fresh chia or seeds, or a mix of the two.
To make the bananas: Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl over medium heat until melted.
Add about 1 cup of the chocolate, stirring to make sure the chocolate is well combined.
Stir in the chian.
Stir until smooth and creamy.
Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the chocolate mixture and stir until melted and smooth.
Place the banana into a bowl and cover with a plastic wrap.
Chill for about 2 hours, then remove from the plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Remove the plastic from the bowl, and pour the chocolate-covered banana into the bowl.
Use a spoon to press the banana onto the banana with the spatula.
Put the plastic-wrapped banana in the freezer to cool completely.
When ready to eat, remove the plastic.
Add a spoonful of the chiasa dal to the bottom of the bowl of your blender.
Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
