These past two weeks the temperature in Khartoum has been in the fifties /122 ° Farenheit (more about this in tomorrow's post).
Last night, following another particularly hot day, I decided to serve a refreshing dessert after dinner. I paged through my weigh-loss magazine (now almost three months old!) and came across an old-fashioned sweet, albeit always a firm favorite in hotels when I was a child.
I always have a bunch of bananas in the house , mainly as a treat for the bulbuls who visit our birdfeeder on the balcony daily, and because they are only SDG1 / US$.43c for a dozen. I didn't have cherries, but used halved grapes which were just as delicious.
Sweet and simple banana split (Weigh-less magazine Feb/March 2010)
200g diet ice-cream
2 small bananas, peeled
4 black grapes (or cherries if available)
20g crushed almonds
2 ginger biscuits, crushed
Cut the banana in half lengthwise and place in a serving bowl. (I used tumblers)
Place ice-cream between the two banana halves
Cover with crushed biscuit and almonds
Drizzle honey over
