Banana Express

Submitted by: KRISKOVA
Banana Express

Introduction

Delicious and Easy Delicious and Easy
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/2 medium banana
    1/2 tbsp of honey
    dash of cinnamon
    1/4 cup of frozen yogurt

Directions

The recipe with 1/2 banana makes an individual serving. I use 1 banana to make dessert for me and my sweetie.


Put 1/2 banana into a bowl and pour honey on top. Sprinkle the cinnamon and cook the banana+honey+cinnamon in the microwave for about 1 minute or until soft (if you are doing 2 servings, you will need about 1 minute and 1/2).


The water from the banana will make a watery syrup with the honey. Add the frozen yogurt on top of the warm banana+syrup and enjoy.


This is delicious comfort food, for just 150 calories. And it takes less than 3 minutes - including prep work, cooking, and serving.

    I was skeptical about how good this would be because of how simple the recipe is, but all the ratings had me curious... and it really is as good as everyone is saying!!! I could not believe how delicious this turned out! I used chocolate ice cream since I didn't have any frozen yogurt. So good. - 1/31/09

    Delicious for something so simple and low in calories. This has become my go-to snack whenever I'm craving dessert. Thanks for posting it.

    For others: I've noticed it's important to make sure the bananas are fully ripe. I also like adding just a few chopped peanuts for some crunch and flavour. - 11/23/09

    Awesome! Next time I wanna try it with dash of brandy instead of cinnamon.

    It's next time: Did try with brandy (1 tsp) & reduced honey ( 1/2 tsp) per serving (& regular ice cream (25g) instead of frozen yogurt) came out 155 cal...not bad. - 12/4/10

    My daughter and I just got done having some for desert and it was soooo Good. I was a little skeptic because I like my bananas fresh once they even start to turn brown I toss them.
