Grilled Bananas: Platanos Asados

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Brandess

One of our favorite quick desserts from Grill It! with Bobby Flay. This is a great way to use up over ripened bananas. The fresh, naturally sweet flavor of the bananas is intensified by the grilling and the cinnamon really makes this recipe a winner.

Did this tonight after eating some BBQ. It was very good! I would have never thought to use sweetened condensed milk with a grilled banana. Followed the recipe and added a dollop of whipped topping at the end. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Leaving the peel on and intact, place whole bananas inside the grill at any temperature, and grill until very brown and soft, anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the grill temperature.
  2. Slice bananas, through the peel, from end to end.
  3. Squeeze open like you would a baked potato.
  4. Put a little bit of condensed milk over the banana and sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon.
