“A fast easy snack, I also substitute any fruit -( apples, pineapple, cherries, grapes, melons, oranges etc ) I have handy, You may also chill any fruit. I'll even dip small extra sharp cheese chunks into the sauce and lightly dust them with freshly grated cinnamon( My DH doesn't understand that one, just something about sweet, salty and sharp ), pretty tasty to me that way. Prep time includes preparing the bananas and saucing them.”
