This recipe intrigued me, but I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. The bananas and dates were great together! I also loved the different textures of the nuts, the broiled sugar, and the soft warm fruits in cream. I used Medjool dates and sliced blanched almonds, and I used half and half instead of light cream. I will definitely be making this again, thanks for posting :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 NA*ME
