Love to cook? Read on for professional tips on building flavor without all the calories!


This is the fourth and last in the series of four WACKY things to do with tortillas! So of course it’s a dessert… and what a dessert! These healthy treats will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for several months. They are always great to pull out and enjoy… not just in the hot, summer months! These tasty treats contain only 350 calories per huge serving… enough to satisfy sweet tooth, although the main ingredient is a healthy banana! Great for an after school snack or as a make ahead dessert for a party!

Frozen Banana Desserts

Wacky Frozen Banana Tortilla Desserts

Serves: 12

Ingredients:

12 six inch MexAmerica flour tortillas

6 large bananas

24 Tablespoons Weight Watchers Cream Cheese

3 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk or white)

4 cups ground pecans

Method:

  1. Cut each banana in half. Lay the banana piece on a tortilla and trim it at each end of the banana.
  2. Remove the banana and spread the tortilla with cream cheese. Place the banana on the end of the tortilla and roll it up tightly. Place seam side down and repeat for all bananas.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. Brush melted chocolate on each tortilla roll; then roll in the ground nuts.
  4. Push a Popsicle stick half way into each one. Freeze for at least two hours before serving or up to 1 month.

Chef Lynn’s Tip:

You can also melt chocolate in a microwave. Zap it in spurts starting with 20 seconds and reducing to 10 seconds each, stirring in between. Chocolate burns VERY easily, so zap it in moderation!
