SWEET TEA

Saturday, July 9, 2011

If you give a friend a banana. . .

I love my Blog friends.
Your comments add to my day
and I always look forward to
seeing who has visited and left
some words for me.

I do wish there was a way to
respond back to your specific
comments and questions.
I bet you feel the same way.
Am I right?

Several of you have asked about
the Grilled Banana Splits
I mentioned in my 4th of July post.

Here is how we made our
Grilled Banana Splits.

We split the banana (leaving the peel on)
and filled them with our choice of yummies.
We chose from chocolate chips, flaked coconut,
peanut butter chips,  and mini marshmallows.
Then we wrapped our creation in foil -


and grilled them till they were
heated through.

 As soon as the foil had cooled
for a bit
we squeezed the warm banana goo
over ice cream.
I know it doesn't look very pretty,
but it was oh-so-delicious!
(And quick.  And simple.)

*I'm guessing this would be equally
good heated in the oven.

That just looks so yummy and putting it over homemade icecream might just take me over the top! Seeing the bananas in the foil reminded me of Girl Scout outings where we did the same thing only just ate the banana out of the foil..really roughing it! Have a good weekend!

Yum.....I think we may make that real soon!!!

It does look like a fun way to grill something "new" this summer. I need to get out our old crank ice cream maker to go along with this. Thanks- xo Diana

Yummy except for the coconuts.

And about commenting back - I do if I can find the address - write them directly back!

Oh, my goodness - that sounds wonderful.

And I think I had better go eat a high-fiber "filler bar" as soon as possible, before I am too tempted to go try that whole banana-thingie. :) ...Marsha

Our theory is if there is chocolate in it....it is GOOD!!
The bowl of yumminess is very appealing.

Okay, that sounds incredibly yummy. You have my mouth watering now :)

You can comment back to many of the readers by having comments sent to your email address. You probably knew that already though :) Quite a few have "non-reply" though, so it doesn't work for everyone.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings,
Marcia

Hey Sweet Tea! We love grilled bananas but we actually grill them. I peel and slice the bananas halfwise, coat them in a mixture of melted butter, brown sugar and honey and grill them on a flat sheet a foil. The mixture carmalizes and then you brown them just a bit and serve over vanilla ice cream. Delectable I tell ya!

I'm with yaya -- we did that at girl scout camp. Just shoved them down in the coals. Of course, we suspected our leaders were trying to sneak healthy stuff in on us -- so we clamored for s'mores as well!

Sounds yummy! Thanks for your very sweet visit to my blog.

Stephani said...

Wow! Who knew you could do such a thing?! ~ It does look good, but I've been off sugar for about 2 months now and I'm feeling great! My energy has skyrocketd! But my husband on the other hand may want to try this! :) Thanks for sharing!
