Baked bananas with cream cheese and dulce de leche

I will never forget the taste of banoffee pie which I was passionately picking at while working in one restaurant in England. Not that it was the best banoffee pie in the world, but because it was the first time for my taste buds. I was delighted by this unique combination of bananas and dulce de leche, and even though I didn't really like cream, in this excellent company it was also kind of delicious:).

Today's recipe resembles a bit banoffee pie. Consist of 4 levels: baked bananas, cream cheese with yogurt and a pinch of vanilla, walnuts and dulce de leche at the top :) 

Ingredients (serves 2):

2 ripe bananas
50 g cream cheese 
50 g natural yogurt, sweetened
1 teaspoon sugar with vanilla
2 walnuts
2 tablespoons dulce de leche


Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Put unpeeled bananas on a tray and bake for 8 minutes. After this time flip them over and bake for another 4 minutes or till the whole skin is black. Remove bananas from the oven and let them cool. 

Mix cream cheese with yogurt and sugar.

Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork.

Put mashed bananas at the bottom of a glass or a bowl. Add cheese combined with yogurt. Sprinkle with walnuts cut into pieces and pour with dulce de leche.

Enjoy !!!
