Bananas in Tropical Dressing

Bananas are mucous forming and coconut is cooling in nature, therefore this scrumptious dessert is not ideal for Kapha, though is very soothing to Vatta.

This is a lovely breakfast in the winter time. 

Serves 2

10 minutes

Bananas greatly benefit the body. They contain Tryptophan, an aminoacid that can be converted to Serotonin, which helps improve one's mood. They are high in Iron, helping the body's hemoglobin function. They contain a high content of fiber, restoring normal bowel function. They contain Pectin, a soluble fiber that helps movement in the digestive tract. Bananas give eyesight protection. They give you healthy bones, kidneys, heart, blood pressure, and nerves. Bananas are a stress reliever. With Vitamins B6 and B12, they can help you recover from nicotene withdrawal, helping people who are trying to give up smoking.

1 ripe banana
½ tsp grated ginger
1 tsp ghee
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup grated dry unsweetened coconut
