Lemon and banana is an underrated combination. That is why it is only right to make this lemon and banana mimosa recipe. So without further ado, here is the lemon banana mimosa recipe.

Do Lemon And Banana Go Together?

The combination of lemon and banana is an intriguing mix. You would not think that this could be a tasty mixture, and you would be wrong.

The sourness of the lemon and the sweetness of the banana balance each other perfectly.

After coming across this mixture, I did some research to see if there are any recipes using these two ingredients, and what I discovered was an eye-opener.

For the most part, the recipes were all dessert-based, but there were a few drink recipes here and there.

Regardless, I am more open to trying a lemon and banana recipe, so the lemon and banana mimosa recipe was created.

Lemon And Banana Mimosa Recipe

Once I discovered that banana and lemon go well together, it was a no-brainer to make this lemon banana mimosa recipe.

Maybe it is just me, but champagne goes well with any juice combination. Every time I drink juice, I end up turning it into a mimosa.

What To Mix Bananas With?

Banana mix with so many things that it is hard to keep up. Moreover, to summarize what bananas mix well with, use this rule of thumb.

You will never go wrong with mixing a banana with another fruit or with food that is made of dough. In other words, a bread product.

Why Is A Mimosa Called A Mimosa?

Mimosa is such a unique name, but how does that end up being the name for a drink? The name comes from a yellow flower name, Acacia dealbata.

Also, this is a mimosa plant, and yes, this has nothing to do with the lemon banana recipe, but it is a cool, fun fact to store in your brain.

What Is The Most Popular Tropical Fruit?

Based on my research, I discovered that mangoes are the most popular tropical fruit. After that are pineapples, papayas, and avocados.

In fact, if you want a recipe using mango, try this mango drink. If drinks are not your thing, then try these mango chicken wings.

You can eat those wings after you get your banana and lemon to make the lemon banana mimosa recipe.

Furthermore, let me be transparent, I Googled this question and mangoes were the answer I received. Do whatever you want with that knowledge.

There may be other articles and studies showing that mangoes are not the most popular tropical fruit on the planet.

That is the internet for you because that article should have mentioned bananas and all of their glory.

Bananas are an amazing tropical fruit that goes incredibly well with lemon. Now here we are again, talking about the lemon and banana mimosa recipe.

What Drinks Do Lemon Goes Well With?

Outside mimosas, the best drinks with lemon are margaritas, more margaritas, and a jug filled with a gallon of margaritas.

You do not believe me? Try this margarita recipe for yourself.

What Glasses Do You Serve Mimosas In?

Mimosas are drunk in a champagne flute glass. Does that mean you can only drink mimosas in that type of glass?

Nope. In fact, you can drink your mimosa in cat litter if you want to, the drink will still get you where you need to be.
