Kitchen Confidence Rating Scale:

Budget Rating Scale:


3 or 4 ripe bananas

1 cup coconut milk

1 teaspoon vanilla (or pandanus leaf if you want ‘authentic’)

2 tablespoons brown sugar (or firm palm sugar if want ‘authentic’)

Pinch of sea salt, to taste


Boil bananas in water in a large, flat frying pan for 2 minutes 2 Minutes until skins turn dark and start to break. Gently remove from pan, peel and cut into 4 pieces each.

Rinse and reuse the same frying pan. Pour coconut milk into pan, bring to a boil. Add bananas, vanilla, sugar, salt and boil 3 minutes 3 Minutes. Don’t over boil or the oil will start to separate out from the coconut milk and the bananas will be too soft, they should be slightly hard. No comment…

Sprinkle with cinnamon and love of course.

And if he isn’t a fan of bananas, we have loads of chocolate dessert recipes to select from!!
