Directions

  1. Remove stems & puree strawberries with 1 tbsp powdered sugar. Set aside.
  2. Combine room temp low-fat cream cheese with 1 tbsp powdered sugar & set aside.
  3. Peel & halve the bananas, then split each half again -- but lengthwise.
  4. Begin to assemble the tortilla wraps by 1st placing 2 banana quarters side-by-side in the center of ea flour tortilla.
  5. Fold the 2 side edges of the tortillas over to encircle the banana halves.
  6. Fold the open ends in slightly & then the entire end back over any exposed tortilla edges to form a wrap with all edges on 1 side.
  7. Place the wraps (exposed edges down) in a dry skillet & brown the tortilla over med heat, turning several times. (The 1st browning will "seal" the edge side & keep the tortillas in a uniform shape as you continue to brown.).
  8. Transfer tortillas to dessert plates. Spoon 1/4 of the strawberry puree over each tortilla & 1/4 of the cream cheese in the center. Serve warm.
  9. NOTE: This dish was created for a friend & written to be low-fat. You can dress it up by adding choc chips &/or nuts to the inside of the wrap w/the bananas or other options your imagination might envision.
