Recipe: Banana-Honey Juice from Tea Garden in Mae Sot

Banana juice with honey recipe, Tea Garden at Border Collective  in Mae Sot

The bright yellow banana juice with honey is one of the most popular drinks at Borderline Collective’s Tea Garden restaurant. It is easy to make, and it tastes amazing, like sunshine in a jar.

Recipe and notes by Chef Nge Nge: The bananas here in Thailand are smaller and sweeter than in Europe and the US, but you can use any kind of sweet banana for the recipe.

The secret is to boil the bananas as it will bring out the sweetness and the banana flavor. If you don’t have time to boil the bananas, make sure you use very ripe bananas (the kind that has gone brown on the outside, and that you would otherwise use for banana bread.

If you like peanut butter (I do!) the banana juice gets even better, if you add a tablespoon of peanut butter before mixing.
