Coconut mousse and Sweet fried bananas: Paleo dessert pairing

I’m into my final week of the 30 Days of Paleo challenge!


It’s going well, and I think I’ve lost some weight because my friends just attacked me and forcefully took a picture of my bum to prove how loose my pants have become. Yes, I have super friends 😛


The thing is I’ve been eating A LOT. I’m not depriving myself at all.


The strangest thing is that I don’t even have those annoying sugar cravings I was feeling earlier on in the month.


But that’s probably because I’ve had these wonderful desserts for company.


Silken, snow-white coconut mousse. Cold and smooth.

Don’t you just want to marry these adorable little cups btw? 🙂


Crisp, golden, sweet bananas. Warm and caramelized.

These two desserts were meant to be together – kinda like Hugh Jackman and me.


They’re fantastic by themselves, but together they could rule the world.


If you have only 5 minutes and are craving something sweet, make the Sweet fried bananas. They will make you happy 🙂

Ingredients:


3-4 semi ripe bananas
1-2 tsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon


Method:


1. Slice the bananas into 1/4 inch circles. Heat the oil in a large oil stick pan over a gentle heat.
2. Slide the bananas into the pan, making sure they are all on their flat side (you might have to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan) and fry over a low flame. Turn over after 3-4 minutes to fry the other side as well.
3. Dissolve the honey with 2 tablespoons of water and pour over the bananas. Toss gently and allow the bananas to be coated in the sticky mixture. Take off the flame and place in a shallow plate. Sprinkle over the cinnamon and serve.


Happy weekend lovelies! Stay bright 🙂
