Christmas Bananas

"This dish is similar to one I ate at Shoney's. It makes a great holiday dish. Minimal prep time and no cooking time, but it does need to marinate overnight to taste best. Bananas shouldn't be overly ripe. you can add more bananas to the juice as you eat them ."

    So, I'm sick and in the hospital, but my husband has been cooking for the ZWT9 challenges and for himself and our kids. They really enjoyed this dessert and he said it was easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this for our family when I get home and recooperated. Thanks Dienia B. Made for team Tasty Testers during ZWT9.

    Forget the title ~ We enjoyed this very easy-to-make, tasty treat well before the end of the year, obviously! This is something I could get used to with no trouble at all, so will be keeping the recipe around! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
