baked banana ambrosia

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Last night after I put Max to bed..and had a little glass of wine ;)..I was browsing my new thrifted cookbook and bookmarked a bunch of desserts I wanted to try. We have a ton of bananas in our fridge at the moment so I hopped on over to the banana section. I spotted something that sounded delicious...Baked Banana Ambrosia! ...I had to google to word ambrosia because I had no idea what it meant. According to dictionary.com it means "The food of the gods"....there was also another meaning that said it meant "A fruit dessert made of shredded coconut and oranges"...Boring. I like the first definition.

What you'll need:
  • 4 peeled bananas
  • 5 tablespoons of orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup of shredded coconut ( I used a little more)
1. Cut bananas into little slices. Place them in a baking dish that has a lid.

2. Combine orange juice, lemon juice and honey in a small bowl. Pour over banana slices.

3. Pour coconut over bananas; cover.

4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.

5. Serve warm

Such a simple YUMMY little treat!

Yum! That sounds delicious! And a very healthy dessert that I can totally justify having...maybe even with some ice cream :)

Hello! I just found your blog through pinterest. I am interested in making this recipe, but have a quick question. Do you use unsweetened or sweetened coconut? I have both in the pantry. Thank you!
