I make SCD legal yogurt every week, but occasionally I have a bad batch come out. The yogurt itself isn’t bad, but it has a grainy consistency. I think it happens when I’m pressed for time and I bring the milk to a boil too quickly. I have a weird issue with the textures of food and this almost curdled texture makes it not palatable to me. I don’t want to waste the batches so I use them in smoothies and the blender does the trick.
Since I’m just finishing up round 2 of the introductory diet to get things back on track, I can’t have the normal fruits I usually use. I’ve been drinking this “banana milk” as I like to call it every morning for the past couple of weeks and just can’t stop! I really notice a difference in the way my stomach feels if I start my day off with a tall glass. The probiotics in the yogurt settle my gut and the banana adds a great sweetness without the use of honey. Not to mention bananas are a binding fruit! I usually buy two bunches of bananas when I go to the store. One to eat immediately, and one to let sit on the counter and get overripe for use in smoothies, muffins, and other baked goods.
This isn’t the most innovative recipe, and I’m sure I’m not the first to make it, but wanted to share it all the same.
1/2 overripe banana (with brown spots)
1/8 cup unfiltered apple juice
1 jar SCD yogurt (6-8 ounces)
Put it all in a blender and process until smooth! The consistency will be like that of whole milk or those little pro biotic drinks you can buy at the grocery store.
