BANANA GINGER BEER DRESSING
A fat-free creamy dressing using banana, ginger beer, turmeric and nutmeg. No added sugar beyond what’s in the ginger beer! Makes 5 cups
2 c. ginger beer – I used Goslings brand
3 med. size peeled bananas, cut into chunks
1/2 c. white Balsamic vinegar
2 t. pink Himalayan salt
1/2- 1 t. ground nutmeg
1 t. turmeric
fresh grind black pepper to taste
1 t. guar gum powder (thickener)
Place ginger beer and bananas in blender container. Blend till banana dissolves into ginger beer.
Add vinegar, salt, nutmeg, turmeric and black pepper. Blend till smooth on high speed.
Add guar gum. Immediately blend till smooth, about 15 seconds to be sure powder dissolves. Let set for a few minutes, then blend again, on high speed. Dressing will thicken more as it sets.
Pack into covered containers and refrigerate.
Before using I add fresh lime or lemon squeeze to taste along with chopped fresh tarragon (or crushed dried).
