Let me share an after dinner scenario that recently happened: my little boy started whining that he wanted dessert and I suggested that he have a piece of fruit. He insisted that fruit was NOT a dessert and I quickly replied that fruit indeed makes a fabulous dessert! So, I had to prove it to him…in the form of a quick, delicious, warm banana split! He now requests fruit for dessert after every meal – I don’t blame him. Enjoy!
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
1 tablespoon mini-chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand)
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk ice cream (this homemade recipe is my favorite!)
Cut a banana lengthwise and fry it facedown in 1 teaspoon Earth Balance spread for 3-5 minutes, or until golden. Arrange the banana on a plate and top with ice cream, cinnamon, pecans, chocolate chips, and a drizzle of honey. (Adapted slightly from Recipe Source: The Forest Feast for Kids)
