    Easy and delicious dish! We loved the combination of coconut and lemon juice on the banana. It was great as-is, and with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 27

    This is a a great easy & healthy snack or dessert. I used unsweetened desiccated coconut. I did find the lemon juice a little strong so next time will try with orange juice or maybe lime juice. Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.
    Very easy and would work equally well for a child's dessert as an elegant dessert for adults. I used both lemon and lime juice and garnished the top of the bananas with lime and lemon zest (which I would probably omit if serving to children.) Added a very light sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg. Reviewed for Veg Swap/Tag July.

    Simple, fresh, healthy and tasty. . .and took about 1 minute to prepare. MY kind of recipe! We tried them as written then added some cinnamon to the tops and a quick squirt of canned whipped cream which took them OVER the top yummy! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe.
    Love bananas, Love Coconut! What's not to love about this snack? Made for ZWT6 - No-Nonsense Nibblers


I come from the land of Dracula and I have two little daughters; they're three years apart.I travelled a lot and I lived in Hungary,Croatia,Canada,Thailand,Japan and Iran(DH is from here). I've seen a lot of wonderful places, the travel bug is still in me but waiting for DDs to grow a little so we can go together. Lots of wonderful memories and hoping to add some more,but my travelling style has to be adjusted now.No more backpacking! I feel old,suddenly. My girls are everything for me and I'm lucky that I'm able to be at home with them.My life really changed since having them. I like eating healthy,DH works out a lot and taught me about the right foods.Right now I'm trying to lose a few kg,but I'm happy if I lose one kg/month. Never needed a drastic diet,I drink a lot of water and luckylly there's no McDonalds here(yet) to eat junk food. I prefer homemade cooking to restaurants, these days we can make a better tasting meal at home. I like knowing what goes in my food and what hands are cooking it. I always look at a chef's hands and believe me I've seen dirty fingers too! I came to the Zaar to look for a pancake recipe and now my refrigerator is full with jars of homemade stuff. I made a lot of friends and I enjoy playing in the tag games since receiving a premium membership gift from Sydney Mike. Thank you, Syd. I want to thank everyone who makes my recipes and takes the time to take photos. Sometimes I loose track and I can't get back to thank each person making a recipe. I don't mind if someone doesn't stick to the recipe,everyone's taste and needs are different,sometimes ingredients are hard to find and I know this better than most. Please feel free to experiment and hope we'll learn something new from your feedback. <a href="" id="clustrMapsLink"><img src="" style="border:0px;" alt="Locations of visitors to this page" title="Locations of visitors to this page" id="clustrMapsImg" onerror="this.onerror=null; this.src=''; document.getElementById('clustrMapsLink').href='';" /> </a> These are the tag games that I took part in: <img src= ""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Gimme 5 personal banner"> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
