Banana Peel Tea
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Makes: 1 small cup tea
An organic banana is preferable to avoid pesticides in your tea. However, most tea that we drink is not organic anyway. So don't let perfect be the enemy of good.
  • ¼-1/2 banana, including the peel
  • 1 cup water (You can use more but who wants to drink a lot of liquid before bed? Then you'll really be waking up.)
  • Optional: dash of cinnamon
  1. In a small pot, combine water and banana. Bring to a boil. Simmer 10-20 minutes.
  2. Add cinnamon if desired.
  3. Strain and enjoy.
