favorite fruits

Baby Bananas are my all time favorite fruit since living in Southeast Asia. Take a regular banana and squish it, but keep the same amount of nutrients, more flavor, same density = a short and super concentrated hybrid of potassium goodness. Regular bananas are dry, Baby Bananas are juicy! Regular bananas are only sweet when brown, Baby Banana are deliciously sweet 24/7. And they're versatile. Leave the Baby Banana fresh for a sweet juicy snack, or grill it for a plantain-like consistency. It's dense enough to handle the flame and pack in the flavor. My favorite is the Vietnamese dessert, of grilled baby bananas in warm coconut milk. You will see the older ladies on the side of a hem, grilling these bad boys, till they are firm. mmm mmm good!
