Cinnamon Banana Spiel



Three ingredients. Pure heaven. A dessert healthy enough for breakfast.

I debuted “Cinnamon Banana Spiel” at my Family Friendly Cooking Class entitled “The Picky Eater’s Club.” I have an overwhelming number of moms that come to my cooking classes and complain that they can’t get their kids to eat anything other than chicken nuggets and pasta with cheese. I wanted to show them a dessert that they could easily whip up with what they already have in the house, but something that would seem like an extra special treat for their kids. And, of course, there’s no refined sugar in “Cinnamon Banana Spiel.” For special occasions, I particularly like it a la mode with non-dairy coconut milk ice cream (Coconut Bliss).
