Banana Bisque with Cinnamon Croutons

sensational tasting, but so easy to make!
Banana Cream Pie (Low Fat)
have a wonderful friend who has asked me several times what I have in the
house that is sweet to eat, which I usually do have
something. Unfortunately, she is diabetic. Her desire for something sweet,
gave me the idea to start working on some low fat, ADA compliant
recipes. This recipe was the result of trying to stay within the limits of
what we all should be eating in the way of fats and sugars while still
tasting like a “real” dessert.
Banana Nut Bread
There is a saying about lemons; “When life gives you lemons, make
lemonade”. Well maybe there should be one for bananas as well - when
life gives you overripe bananas, make banana bread! At least that is
what I do.

loaded with banana flavor. It is very easy to make and so delicious!

Fresh Fruit Salad
This is my favorite fresh fruit salad. My mother-in-law, Gertrude Zemp, taught me to make this when I
was a young bride. It is very refreshing and also low in calories. I use
whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The banana dressing is
very light and compliments the fruit. You will never want to make a "yucky"
canned fruit salad again!
Fresh Fruit Salad with 1-2-3 Fruit Dressing
This is very refreshing and delicious fruit salad. I use
whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad. The 1-2-3 Fruit

fruits in the dressing gives the salad a wonderful delicious flavor!

course. If you love mangos, you'll love this recipe."

produce or blend whole foods.

Ultimate Banana Bread
This recipe for banana bread fascinated me, as
it takes 6 bananas in the recipe. Also the bananas are heated, juiced, and
the juice reduced! I had never heard of this technique before, so I just had
to give it a try. I very slightly adapted a few instructions in the recipe.
