Apples and Bananas……….

Don’t store apples and bananas near each other. Apples give off a gas that makes the bananas ripen (and go soft) much faster!

Banana Cream Angel Bites
A uniquely satisfying, diabetic-friendly and indulgent guilt-free dessert.

Recipe Ingredients:
Angel Bites:
5 large egg whites
1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pinch salt

Banana Cream Filling:
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 cup LACTAID® Fat Free Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons light butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 teaspoon banana flavor
2 bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions:
1 – Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly oil a 13×11 inch-baking sheet. Set aside.
2 – Make Angel Bites: Place egg whites in a medium mixing bowl. Whip on high speed using an electric beater or wire whisk until frothy.
3 – Add Splenda® Granulated Sweetener, vanilla and salt. Mix on high speed until medium-stiff peaks form (approximately 20 to 30 seconds).
4 – Spoon rounded tablespoons of egg white mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350°F (175°C) oven 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Cool.
5 – Make Filling: Place egg substitute, LACTAID® Fat Free Milk, vanilla and light butter in a small saucepan. Blend Splenda® Granulated Sweetener and cornstarch together and add to ingredients in the saucepan. Stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken and bubble (approximately 3 to 4 minutes).
6 – Remove filling from heat and add banana flavor. Stir until well mixed. For an extra creamy filling, pour into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Cover and process until very creamy (approximately 10 seconds). Pour filling into a bowl and refrigerate at least 20 minutes or until ready to serve.
7 – Assemble Angel Bites. Just before serving, sandwich Angel Bites with filling. Place three Angel Bites on a plate with the bottoms facing up. Top each with sliced banana and a spoonful of filling. Stack another Angel Bite on top. Repeat for each serving.
8 – Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
Makes 5 servings. Serving Size: 3 prepared angel bites.

Tip: If egg whites start to separate, whisk them back together using a wire whisk.

Ripen fruit faster……..

 

If you buy some fruit that’s not quite ripe, try this hint – To speed up the ripening process, wrap any unripe fruit inside a paper bag with a banana and stash it in a dark place. The banana will release a natural gas and your fruit will be ready to eat in no time.

Freeze the Bananas………..

As soon as bananas turn too ripe to eat, freeze them for baking and smoothies. Then thaw whole bananas in their skin. Do not allow frozen bananas to thaw completely before cooking with them, as the juices are messy.
