Plantain stem Buttermilk - vazhaithandu mor - neer mor with banana stem- Banana Stem Butter milk - Healthy drink recipe

I Love all buttermilk based recipes. You can have this any time..It is quite refreshing and you can replace your frizzy drink with these kind of recipes. Generally I prefer flavoured buttermilk. It is also easy to add vegetables which normally kids don't eat.. This buttermilk is very easy to make. I have used store bought fat free buttermilk but you can make buttermilk from the homemade yogurt. I normally have this as part of my breakfast or even after my workout.
