I have been a bit slow getting back into the swing of things...
Little did I know when I was eight posts ahead, already scheduled to publish, that I would fall prey to emergency surgery. Then Snap, quick as can be, a week went by and the posts were published. When I got back home, I was unable to cook for a few days. Worse yet, unable to eat for many weeks to come. Let me clarify, I can eat, but must be very careful with food choices, to allow healing.
This new to me process of eating for healing has taught me one thing, simple foods can be combined in wonderful ways that are truly enjoyed. Honestly it will be nice when I can return to exploring new and different recipes once again, but for now, the challenge has been accepted...
I will make wonderful meals with the ingredients that allow healing while continuing to enjoy the creative process of cooking.
Which brings us to this delicious Summer Fruit Plate with Banana Creme and Toasted Coconut. You may use any fruits that compliment the flavor of bananas. Fortunately, this is just about every fruit imaginable. Today I used a mango and red seedless table grapes, but berries come to mind for next time.

Summer Fruits with Banana Creme and Toasted Coconut
by the seat of my pants
2 small very ripe bananas
1/2 c honey yogurt
1 large mango, peeled and diced
1/3 c red seedless grapes
1/4 c toasted coconut - lightly salted is especially delicious for this arrangement
Mash the bananas, fold in the honey yogurt.
Pile the center of a rimmed plate. Spread the banana creme outward, making room to arrange the fruit around and on top.
Edge the perimeter with the mango pieces.
Moving inward, make another circle with the grapes.
Top the entire plate with the toasted coconut.
