I thought I'd start the week off with a fun and funky post! I was driving along the other day and had the idea for these mad bananas. I just had to come home and make one. We've been eating them ever since! This is such a fun way to eat fruit-especially if you're a big kid like me...It's a snack or dessert that will make people of all ages smile.
Select bananas and strawberries of a pretty much identical diameter. Peel the banana on two sides, leave the third strip of peel attached. Don't take the banana out of the peel, leave it sitting in the skin. Slice some strawberries about 3-4mm thick. Make slices in the banana the same width and remove every other slice, slotting in a slice of strawberry as you go. Either arrange the spare slices of banana on the plate or save and add to a fruit salad.
When completed, 'close' the banana up again and arrange on a bright, fun plate with a sprig of mint.
Let the recipient have the fun of 'peeling' the banana and revealing its strawberry stripeyness!
For those silly moments when only a striped banana will do!
