Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 1 large ripe banana (or 2 small )
  • 8 - 10 fresh lychees, peeled, or canned lychees (drained)
  • 1 x 400ml can coconut milk
  • ¼ - ¼ cup loose (not packed) cup brown sugar (more or less to taste)
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Peel the bananas, then slice them in half lengthwise. Cut these lengths into smaller sections - roughly 5 cm long.
  2. Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan or pot, and place over medium-high heat. Add the sugar, stirring to dissolve (about 30 seconds to 1 minute). Start by adding ¼ cup sugar, taste-testing for sweetness. If you'd like it sweeter, add a little more.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients. Continue stirring until the bananas and lychees are warmed through (1-2 minutes).
  4. Serve immediately, or cover and place in the refrigerator for later.
Notes
This dessert is excellent served either warm or cold (cold is great for hot summer days, while warm is a perfect comfort food during cooler weather).
