Here is a healthy, fresh dessert I highly recommend and children love it:


Banana-Raisin Coconut Delight

  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Handful of red flame raisins, or to taste

In a flat dish mash one ripe large banana, until smooth and creamy. Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and top with raisins, coconut. Drizzle honey over and enjoy.
