Woah. The deliciousness of this recipe was an accident, but that makes it even better. I made pecan milk and decided to add a little to my smoothie because nut milk in smoothies takes them to the next level. What I didn't realize was that the tap water I used to make the milk was hot, so I ended up with warm pecan milk. To this, I added frozen bananas. What happened? The warm liquid made the bananas taste baked - like banana bread! By chance I had also thrown in some nutmeg so the spicing was perfect. I couldn't believe it! Seriously it tastes like banana bread batter. I decorated it with some carob syrup and pecans to make it look pretty. Then I inhaled it.
