Very good flavor. I had also watched the same episode of Calorie Commando and just had to give this unusal sounding recipe a try. The sweet potatoes are rich, delicious, and smooth. Clear, accurate instructions. The unusual banana topping was what had initially drawn me to the recipe, but they turned out to be the only thing I didn't enjoy as much in this recipe. I think I might have liked it better with the bananas mashed up with the sweet potatoes instead, or leave them out altogether next time.
