Spiced Apricot Turkey  


(Per Person)
1 banana
1/4 pint or 125ml skimmed milk


This simple recipe is in my opinion best made with bananas that are starting to go over ripe but fresh bananas can also be used. Peel the banana and cut into slices then put in a freezable sealed container and freeze over night. You can freeze them for longer but I recommend using them within a month.


Step 1  
Remove the banana from the freezer and put in the blender. Add a shot of boiling water to the banana to speed up defrosting, it will have little affect on the taste. Use a pulse technique to blend until a smooth paste is formed. Each time the blender struggles add a shot of boiling water, don't push it too hard or you may break it.


Slowly add the milk whilst continuing to pulse the blender. Once well mixed in serve in a glass.
