When you need something sweet, but no too much fat.
Note: In the US, animal products are used in the process of refining sugar.

1)Brazilian Banana for Dessert (Stovetop)

1 banana (medium banana=120 cal)

Put banana in a pan with boiling water and let it cook until it's soft
(test with a fork).

plate and sprinkle with sugar. Microwave until
the sugar melts and the banana is cooked ( 3 min in my microwave
but might be less time in more powerful microwaves). Serve warm.
