Sinfully Spiced Plantains with Chocolate Sauce

PlantainsBeing that I am of Spanish decent, I love eating plantains (those banana looking things). Ever since I was a kid, my mother would cook some up with some salami or eggs and I would scarf them down. Ahhhh, the memory makes my mouth water.

Anyway, I was at Wal-Mart the other day and came across a little recipe index card that they had laying around. It was for heart-healthy plantains. I decided to incorporate my own little touch, so here goes. Enjoy it, its extremely tasty and health conscience.

2 tbsp. Cinnamon sugar

4 ripe Plantains, peeled and sliced

1 cup jarred chocolate sauce or topping

  4. IsraelNo Gravatar says:

    tell me about it. it used to be that I could buy 10 plantains for a buck. now i would be lucky if i found 3 for a dollar. whats the world coming to?

  5. JessieNo Gravatar says:

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM that sounds sooooooo good!!!!!!

  6. IsraelNo Gravatar says:

    it definitely is. but some need to build a tolerance. what i do is have it with cereal.

  7. JessieNo Gravatar says:

    A tolerance? Please elaborate for me.

    well some people hate the taste. it depends on the kind of soy milk you buy. there are vanillas versions, chocolate, regular. then there are different brands. i buy Silk soy milk, regular. I have had the vanilla version and it tastes really creamy, and good.

    i dont drink it it alone. my first time drinking it i didnt like it. so i started having it with cereal. now thats what i normally do and it helped me get used to it.

  9. JessieNo Gravatar says:

    you do realize that your recipe here does not include soy milk right?

    I even went back to re read

    and yep, still sounds as good as the first time

    That sounds delicious. I love plantains! One thing you can do to make this even healthier is to replace the jarred chocolate sauce with melted 70% cacao dark chocolate. Mmmmm 🙂

  12. Mmmmm, sounds delicious! Will definately try it out!
