Banana Coconut Soup
1. In a large saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil. Add the banana, ginger, cinnamon stick, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the banana is very soft.
Remove the cinnamon stick and allow to cool slightly.
Using a handheld blender (or a blender or food processor), purée the soup until smooth.
Serve the soup in preheated bowls, garnished with banana slices and coconut.

This is such an incredibly soothing soup. It reminds me of eating warm pudding, only it's a lot better!
