Indeed, its flavor is what you'd expect. If you adore bananas, you may have met your ultimate cereal milk.
From the looks of it, there aren't too many brands offering vegan banana milk in the U.S, yet...

Reviewers warn that it's highly addictive. Pros: no artificial preservatives or flavors, rich in omega-3s and supplemented with an array of vitamins and minerals.

Mild in banana flavor and sweetness, Mooala Original is warming with cinnamon spice. It's advertised as nut, carrageenan and gluten-free, and from the looks of the ingredients list, it's most likely soy-free.

Depending on where you live, you may find it at Whole Foods, Costco, natural foods stores or chain supermarkets. Check Mooala's online store map. Note: contains sunflower seeds.
Ingredients: Water, Organic Banana Puree, Organic Roasted Sunflower Seed Butter, Sea Salt, Organic Cinnamon, Gellan Gum.
