Hot Bananas in Coconut Milk

"This is a Chinese dessert that I found to submit for the Zaar World Tour '05... Coconut milk lends a sweet flavor to bananas in this quick and easy recipe. It makes a light dessert for two, or can easily be doubled to serve four people."

    I didn't put my bananas in the hot milk, instead cut them up and put them in a bowl and poured the hot coconut milk on them, and they turned out beautiful and not mushy. Sprinkled with a little cinnamon and some fresh sweet coconut flakes YUM!

    Absolutely delicious! I layered the bottom of my mug with marshmallows, added a drop of rum extract to the mix then poured it over the marshmallows to create a warm, sweet and very tasty treat. Thank you for the inspiration!

    So good! I used condensed milk, I’m not a fan of cinnamon so I omitted it. So good!

    Very good! I knew there had to be something you could do with a banana other than peel and eat. :-) -- We did blend it in a Ninja once cooked. I also used brown sugar instead of white sugar. We doubled the amount of sugar. (Bit of a sweet tooth here) -- As an after thought and half way through my cup, I added shredded coconut. My thoughts....shredded coconut would make a great garnish. -- Thinking ahead...after blending with the shredded coconut, it firms up will. Let cool and drizzle chocolate over them. Yum! Can't wait to try that one. :-)
