My favourite meal as a child was mashed bananas with custard which is perhaps why I enjoy this dish so much.
These proportions with do for a small snack but double the amounts if you're hungry.
1 large ripe banana
1/2 tablespoon lucuma
1/2 tablespoon ground flax seeds
small handful currants
hazlenut milk (or other milk of your choice)
Mash the banana in a bowl with a fork.
Stir in the lucuma, flax seeds and currants.
Cover with hazlenut milk and mix. The consistency should be porridge like.
DID YOU USE LUCUMA POWDER OR FRESH LUCUMA?
This was a lovely filling, easy and mellow breakfast. It was just the right sweetness and consistency. My husband and daughter (non-raw) both liked it too and cleaned their bowls. The only thing I did differently was to swap the currants for some pomegranate and it was really good.
I just bought my first chia seeds today so I'm excited to try them with this.
This is the type of breakfast I make often for the kids. I tried this one without the lucuma and I replaced the flac with ground chia seeds. Delicious!
I added the lucuma because I love its flavour. I think that a ripe banana is sweet enough without any added sweeteners and the lucuma isn't necessary. However it is described as having a maple syrup like taste so if you're not 100% raw I think a splash of maple syrup would be lovely in this. Pixx's suggestions also sound good. x
I'm guessing the lucuma is added as a sweetener. Maybe agave, or some date syrup (dates & water -or orange juice- blended to syrup consistency), could possibly work? Just guessing here, but sounds good to me-- I think I'll try it! :~)
