Mango Banana Dessert with Lime Coconut Cream

Do you ever have days when you want something that tastes indulgent, but you want it to be healthy at the same time? I’ve been craving more tropical favors, something sweet, something that will take me to warmer climates, somewhere on the beach, on a tropical island… Well, it can’t get more tropical than mango, banana and coconut! The recipe for this dessert is rather loose. I’ve added some rough measurements, the lime coconut cream depends on your taste. If you like it sweeter, then add more agave nectar; if you like it more citric flavor, then go with more lime juice; if you like it spicy, add more ginger, etc. I also added some coconut cream to balance out the flavors and add a creamier texture. Coconut cream is very similar to coconut milk, but contains less water. If you can’t find coconut cream in your grocery store, you can use coconut milk instead. If you don’t shake your coconut milk before opening the can, there are two layers. The top thick white layer is actually coconut cream. The bottom layer of gray/whitish watery liquid is coconut water. Use the top thick layer for this recipe. Enjoy this guilty-free treat for when you feel like something sweet!
