Grilled Bananas: Platanos Asados

Total Time
Prep 0 mins
Cook 10 mins

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.


  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.

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!

These were great and oh so easy! I had to substitute unsweetened vanilla-flavored Almond Breeze and Splenda for the sweetened condensed milk due to dieting. They were great this way too!
