Banana Almond Coconut Tea

This content was last updated on June 3, 2022

Blended with bananas, almond milk and coconut milk, this tea is almost like a rich chai latte. With ginger and honey to soothe your throat and stomach, it’s the perfect drink to sip if you are experiencing nausea or on a bland diet. It’s also better than water if you are trying to squeeze in a few extra calories. Best served fresh and hot and excellent for a cold winter day. If you’re making it just for yourself, feel free to cut the recipe in half.


  • 4 cups water
  • 2 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 large ripe bananas, diced

  1. In small pot over medium heat, bring water to a simmer. Add tea bags and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until tea is dark brown.
  2. Add almond milk, coconut milk, ginger, honey and vanilla extract to tea and stir until well combined. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  3. Add bananas to tea mixture and puree with an immersion blender.* Serve warm.


*If you do not have an immersion blender, allow the tea to cool slightly before adding it to a standard blender. When blending hot liquids in a blender, it’s best to only fill the blender halfway and to hold the lid down with a towel in case the steam causes the lid to pop off.
