“A quick and easy dessert recipe I came up with when I had a few not-so-ripe bananas on my hand. You can play around with different ice cream flavors if you like. For more of a "s'more" flavor, add marshmallows to the packets for the last 2 minutes and top with graham cracker crumbs instead of coconut!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Tear off 4 medium-size squares of aluminum foil.
  3. Place 1 banana on each foil square.
  4. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over bananas. Top with chocolate syrup.
  5. Fold square over and fold edges to form a packet.
  6. Roast in oven on cookie sheet or oven rack for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Place coconut on baking sheet and place in oven. Stir every 45-60 sec. until lightly browned.
  8. Remove foil packets from oven and open. Cut bananas into pieces and spoon onto ice cream in dishes. Top with toasted coconut.
