Banana Juice Making

Banana juice making

Banana juice can easily be made after understanding the steps. Banana juice is mainly done by the Azizi people. Its most served on  Rwandan weddings and parties. Early in the morning, you and the host collect the green bananas and the leaves needed to begin the process from the garden.

Banana Juice making is done by hand picking  green bananas burying them, and dropping them into a hole in the ground for ripening Later on, lunch is prepared by the host in a traditional way with your help. After lunch, you collect water from a near by source which can be either a well, spring or even a valley. As you enjoying your delicious lunch, you will have lively conversation with your host. The ripening of bananas takes a period of 3-4days.

There will be no worries for the bananas because their will be ready ones for making juice. You’ll then peel, mash, and strain the bananas using traditional techniques, and voila.  You take photographs as a way of remembering how you did Rwandan traditional juice. Your banana juice tour  includes;-  a guide, lunch and round-trip transport to the juice-making site. Enjoy a tasty lunch and lively conversation with your hosts. At the end of your tour, you will have stop overs at a local handicraft store for souvenir shopping.
