  • Saucepan
  • Blender


  • 3/4 cups brewed coffee
  • 1 1/2 cups milk I used semi skimmed, see notes for vegan option
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and nutmeg for dusting


  • Brew the coffee as you prefer and save ¾ cup to make the drink.
  • In a large flat plate, add the bananas without skin and press with a fork until a smooth paste forms.
  • Add the banana and clove to a medium saucepan over low heat and gradually pour half of the milk. When starts to steam, remove immediately from the heat, add the cinnamon and nutmeg, if using and stir.
  • Remove the clove, add the mixture to a blender and blend for 30 to 40 seconds until smooth. Add the other half cup of milk when blending.
  • Return the mixture to the saucepan quickly over medium heat and reheat again until steaming, stirring frequently.
  • Divide the hot coffee into two mugs and top with the banana milk, sprinkle more nutmeg and cinnamon and serve.


  • Bananas: The best bananas for this recipe are the very ripe ones when it has large black spots all over the skin. Avoid using green unripe bananas as they taste bitter.
  • Blender: Be careful when blending hot drinks as the steam pops the lid and causes burns. Hold firmly the lid with a towel or leave the small lid compartment slightly open.
  • Vegan: Replace whole milk with plant milk. The best alternative is unsweetened almond milk.
  • Smoothness: I like the small bits of banana in the coffee, but if you prefer, pass the banana coffee through a sieve to remove the extra banana bits.
