Heeeeyyyyyyyyyy you guyyyyyys!

You are going to want to make this deliciously warm, thick and sinfully good puree immediately – like right now!

So set down your phone, blast your favorite spotify station and get to work.

Don’t worry, there isn’t that much work involved, it is Friday after-all. And this puree only takes like 15 seconds to make – 5 seconds of prep, 3 seconds of smashing, 20 second of warming and then you get to have a decadent 5 F-U-L-L minutes of pure puree bliss by yourself!!

I can taste it now!

While I am all for this puree being spooned into your little ones mouth, trust me when I say they are going to love you for it, I made this puree more for you. We mommas need a special treat sometimes and since I know I don’t need to talk you into having another cup of coffee, wine or that extra brownie.

I just thought that a nice healthy puree that tastes like a top notch dessert will do the trick.

Here’s the plan – double this recipe so you can serve this puree to your babes tonight for dinner, while you indulge in Friday night pizza and one too many glasses of wine of course. Tthen put your little one down and come back to the kitchen and grab a separate and waaaayyyy bigger bowl of this puree for yourself.

No seriously!

YOU are going to love this puree/dessert/amazingness!!

Ripe bananas smashed with a fork before being gently warmed, this warming step is not weird just go with me here, all before you swirl in some thick, flavorful and delicious coconut milk all topped with a big sprinkle of cinnamon.

Smash
Warm
Swirl
Eat

Motto to live by!
