This is another recipe I did with banana blossom, last time it’s in the form of adobo (something cook with soy sauce). It only means that banana blossoms are very flexible as an ingredient to different kind of recipes. Take a look at the photo below and the procedure of cleaning it. Banana blossoms are very rich in fiber making it a good food to aid in constipation and to promote good digestion. It is also rich in potassium that is good in regulating fluid balance in our body, helps in muscle contractions and nerve signals and antioxidants that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals. This recipe also used coconut milk which contains also a good amount of antioxidants and offers a lot of health benefits like: it can improve digestion, can help you fight infections, increase metabolism and a lot more. It’s really a superb recipe that offers substantial amount of health benefits.
Note: Excessive consumption of food is not good to our health and can bring a negative result or bad effects on our body. Always eat the right kind and the right amount of food.
