Vanilla "Bean Milk"

We’re always looking for ways to “sneak” healthy goodness into our kids, and this bean milk fits the bill. The white beans are totally undetectable, and the frozen banana imparts just a hint of flavor. It tastes kind of like liquid vanilla milkshake. Both my daughters liked it! The ingredients are definitely cheaper than nut milk.

This recipe is adapted from Melomeals: Vegan for $3.33 a Day.

Vanilla Bean Milk
Recipe type: Beverage
  • 1 cup white beans, cooked very well (I just used a cup of canned great northern beans)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 frozen banana (make sure you slice it first and freeze the slices apart from each other so that it blends well)
  1. Combine ingredients in blender and blend well.
  2. Drink warm or cold.

    This is a great recipe. I omit vanilla and cinnamon for recipes like soup. The vanilla and cinnamon are a great touch for cereal, pancakes, & muffins. Cook beans from dried and it makes for a budget friendly milk. I suppose you could freeze some to have on hand?
    Thank so much : )
