Mango-Wrapped Bananas

Wrapping banana chunks with mango and topping them with mashed raspberries turns morning fruit into sushi-style beauties worthy of Sunday brunch. Use a Y-shaped vegetable peeler to cut the mango into long, thin strips that are pliable enough to wrap around banana chunks.



Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup plain low-fat yogurt
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. fresh orange juice
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. honey
Ingredient Line: 
1 large mango, peeled
Ingredient Line: 
3 bananas, peeled
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup fresh raspberries


1. Whisk together yogurt, orange juice, and honey in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Cut mango from top to base into 16 4½- x 1-inch strips using vegetable peeler. Cut bananas into 16 1-inch pieces. Wrap 1 mango strip around each banana piece. Arrange on plates cut-side up.

3. Mash raspberries in separate bowl until slightly liquid, but still chunky. Spoon mashed raspberries atop center of each mango-wrapped banana piece. Serve with yogurt sauce.

Comments on this Recipe

These were easy, delicious, and lovely. I actually left the yogurt, orange juice and honey out altogether (had a vegan over for dinner). I was pleased to discover that the mango just kind of glues to itself for easy wrapping. Huge hit. Will definitely make again.

This looks like the perfect thing to add to a bridal shower menu or similar type of gathering! It's easy but looks so pretty and gourmet.

this looks so easy, and the best part was every one loved it. perfect 2 thumbs up!

I used peach halves instead of mango slices. I sliced them a little on the bottom so they would sit still on the plate. I couldn't get nice, long, thin mango slices with a peeler ... don't know why. May be mangoes were little too ripe? Can you suggest any trick?

This looks so easy and the presentation is amazing.

Sounds yummy!!!!
