Living here in Northern Florida is challenging but not impossible to grow your own green bananas, Fortunately, a friend from Southern Florida gave my husband some homegrown green bananas for which I was elated.
Facts About Green Bananas
Green or unripe bananas contain about 70% starch, most of this starch is resistant starch which is not digested in the small intestines and is classified as dietary fiber.
Green bananas are also high in pectin, both pectin and resistant starch in the unripe banana is great for controlling blood sugar and gut health.
Note: Replace cane sugar with coconut sugar or stevia if diabetic.
You can substitute the coconut milk with other non-dairy milk such as almond, soy, cashew, almond.
If you prefer not to use nutmeg and allspice replace with a milder spice combination of coriander plus cardamom.
