Little man loves Plantains and this is another one of Dad’s creations for him. He still likes the Plantain Pudding Dad made earlier for him too.
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Bring a pot of water to boil. Cut the ends of a very ripe (black) plantain. Slice the skin down the middle to remove. Slice each plantain into rounds and boil until fully cooked (20 minutes). Drain and rinse the plantain rounds. Return to pan and add butter and cinnamon. Mash the plantains with the butter and cinnamon. If the mixture is too thick, add water or milk until you’ve reached you’re desired consistency. It will solidify more as it cools.
2 tsp Butter
1/2 tsp Muscovado Sugar
1/2 c Fruit Dip
Cut off the ends of the plantain and slice down the middle. Remove the peal and discard. Rub butter all over the plantain and sprinkle sugar over the top. Cover with plastic and microwave for 3 minutes. Remove plastic (plantain will be very hot!). Slice plantain and mix with fruit dip with a blender or mixer in a large bowl until smooth. If it’s too thick for you liking, you can thin it out by adding milk 1 Tbs at a time until it’s to your desired thickness.
