- 4 ripe organic bananas, peeled
- Liquid from 1 young coconut (optional)
- Small handful of fresh organic Basil leaves
- Large fresh edible squash flower** (optional)
- Filtered Water as you desire (I used about 20 oz. for the two of us)
Put all the above into the Vitamix carafe and spin up until homogenous and foamy very delicate light yellow-y green. Consume with great pleasure-- I felt it warm as it descended down my throat (probably something to do with the eugenol essential oil, the same chemical responsible for the clove-y smell in cloves). Lovely!

** Fresh organic squash flowers have the most beautiful sweet scent-- reminiscent of our grandmothers' gardens from long ago... I just happen to have a lot of flowers and no squash this year boo hoo...
