  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 to 1 cup coconut milk, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


Peel bananas and cut in half. In a saucepan, bring 1/4 cup coconut milk and water to a boil. Add sugar and salt, and cook until dissolved. Add bananas and let boil for 1 minute.

Add remaining coconut milk. Serve bananas with plenty of the coconut liquid so that they partially float. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Special notes:

Serve with vanilla or coconut ice cream, if you like.
