This recipe is inspired by "piña colada", the famous rum-based cocktail made with coconut and pineapple. The featured ingredient in this case is banana "colada", i.e. strained. Rum is not present in the "kid" version of the dessert, but a few drops are a nice addition for the adults.

Ingredients

2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed 1 lime
2 bananas, small, sliced into 1 cm rounds 300 g
1/3 cup grated coconut 28 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Put the lime juice and some of the coconut milk in a blender. Add some of the banana slices. Mix at maximum speed, then stop the blender and scrape the ingredients down.
  2. Add more coconut milk and banana slices, then blend without over-mixing. If blending goes on too long the mixture will get runny and warm rather then creamy and cool. Add the grated coconut at the end and run the blender 5 seconds.
  3. Pour the mixture into individual bowls. Chill them in the refrigerator for about 1 h before serving.
