Voila! Enter the Banana-Coconut Custard. I have to admit, I just invented this for breakfast this morning, since I was tired of my usual veggie/egg scramble. Here's the basic recipe:
1 banana, smushed
2 eggs, whipped to a frenzy
4 tablespoons coconut milk
3 tablespoons flaked coconut (large flakes)
I whipped up the eggs, added the coconut milk and blended until creamy. Folded in the well-smushed banana, and the coconut flakes. Then I put it in the microwave for 90 seconds. The middle still looked a little goopy so I put it in for another 60 seconds. As you can see, it rose up in a lovely souffle-like manner and was a light and tasty start to the day. It's a testament to how few sweet things I've been eating that this tasted more like a dessert than breakfast to me.
