Recipe adapted from the cookbook "Desserts All Around The Year" by Martha Day.
Brazilian Coffee Bananas
2 small ripe bananas
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules or powder
1 tablespoon muscovado sugar
140g Greek-style yogurt (I used low-fat natural yogurt)
1 tablespoon flaked almonds (lightly toasted)
1) Peel and slice one banana and mash the remaining with a fork.
2) Dissolve the coffee in 1 tablespoon of hot water and stir into the mashed bananas.
3) Spoon a little of the mashed bananas mixture into 2 serving dishes and sprinkle with sugar. Top with a spoonful of yogurt, then repeat until all the ingredients are used up.
4) Swirl the last layer of yogurt for a marbled effect. Finish with a few banana slices and flaked almonds. Serve cold. Best eaten within about an hour of making.
Yummy ... Not too heavy for our after meal dessert. Relax and enjoy a bowl of light and smooth yogurt dessert with a hint of coffee flavour. :D
