      I had some raisins and dates soaking in orange juice already for a couple days so I used some juice from that and added in the dates and raisins and the coconut and a little coconut juice and raw sugar and let it reduce down. I served over plain yogurt. It's similar to what I do with the soaked fruit except has beautiful baked bananas in it. A definite improvement. Next time I'll try it on some rice pudding or ice cream. Thank you. Made for Ramadan Tag 2011.

      The flavor was outstanding. The banana and coconut always work well and the tangy orange / lemon is a nice contrast. I was hoping that the juice might cook down a little more. It ended up thin. I think I will try and mash up one of the banana segments into the orange juice before adding to the dish to see if that helps. Thanks ~Leslie~ this was great.

      This is such a yummy recipe! It is juicy, fruity, sweet and comforting! Mmmm! The bananas go so great with the coconut. YUM!
      I made half the recipe for my sis and me and it was very generous. Instead of orange juice I used apple juice and I also left out the sugar. But other than that followed your recipe to a t and loved it!
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing it here with us!
