"The coconut in the picture doesn't look toasted, but it looks yummy none the less! To Vicki Stoeckel, MN., I hope the scoop of ice cream was sugar free, because it kind of defeated the purpose otherwise... :) "

Have to like bittersweet chocolate taste

Good if you are after sugar free. Otherwise would be improved by using a couple melted choc chips drizzled on top instead of cocoa powder :)

No added sugar

Toasted coconut is easy to

Toasted coconut is easy to do. Preheat oven to 300 to 350 degrees. Warm in oven for about 10 minutes, stirring once after 5 minutes.

I made this for my family for after dinner. The only thing I did different was that I sliced up the banana's more and put them into a bowl. Then before we eat dinner I mixed in the cocoa and the coconut so it would sit for alittle bit. I also used 3 banana's. Everyone Loved it!! The kids had theirs on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. My husband and I had it alone in a dish. My kids asked if we could have this every night!
