Bananes avec Café et Yogourt

Bananes avec Café et Yogourt
Sorry to go all French on you, but does it not sound a whole lot better than Bananas with coffee and yogurt? This is a concoction I got from all By far one of the healthiest desserts you can come up with, and in a matter of 5 minutes FLAT – I am serious – Dun’t get better than this peeps. Got company and don’t want to fret about dessert, this is your baby. Easy, breezy dessert, healthy and endlessly satisfying!!
This is an extremely kid friendly dessert, snack if you substitute the coffee with chocolat and minus the little Kahlua I mixed in for added “flavor” – Pardonez moi (hic) – Just kidding But you can have this sneaky dessert with your man/woman after the kids are in bed- just try saying the name with a French accent to create the “a deux” mood, if you know what I mean …hey it’s French, one’s got to put le twist romantique to it, n’est pas?
Ok – all kidding aside, here goes.


Ingredients Serves – 4
5 Bananas
2 cups of plain low fat Yogurt
1 tbsp instant coffee powder (can be substituted with chocolate powder)
1tbsp hot water
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1tbsp Kahlua (optional)
Agave and slivered almonds for dressing

With a fork, mush 4 bananas into a bowl
Add the coffee powder in hot water and stir in with the mashed bananas
Beat the yogurt smooth

Take a glass, add a table spoon of the mush and top with a tablespoon of yogurt, add a sprinkle of the sugar and repeat a second time

Take the fork and swirl the yogurt around if you want a marble effect

Take the last banana, cur into round thins and decorate on top. Add a few slivered almonds and drizzle a tiny bit of agave.

Keep in the fridge and serve cold. A delicious dessert for about 150 calories – Can you ask for better? Enjoy with loved ones.

and pssst… never let on as to how cinchy this is to prepare.
