Beat The Heat Treat

Ataulfo or Philippine mangoes, peeled and flesh removed from seeds
baby bananas or 3 firm ripe regular bananas
egg, beaten
Tbsp honey
Tbsp white rice flour
cup unsweetened dessicated coconut
cup Kerala coconut oil
juice of 1 lime
Tbsp black sesame seeds
star fruit
sprig Thai mint
dragon fruit

Vietnamese Coffee

lb(s) Vietnamese coffee or French roast coffee
can condensed milk
scoops vanilla ice cream


Step 1

Puree the flesh of three mangoes with the lime juice smooth. Push through a sieve if necessary.

Step 2

Peel bananas and cut in half lengthwise.

Step 3

Combine egg, honey and rice flour, mix until smooth.

Step 4

Dip bananas into egg mixture and coat well. Roll in shredded coconut.

Step 5

Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat and fry bananas for about 10 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

Step 6

Place the fried bananas on a plate, drizzle with mango puree and sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Garnish with a slice of star fruit, a slice of dragon fruit, a slice of mango, and a sprig of Thai mint.

Step 7

Serve each serving with a glass of Vietnamese coffee.

Step 8

Spoon approximately 2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 ml) of ground coffee into Vietnamese coffee filter and using the filter insert tamp the coffee down slightly. The screw in the centre of the filter should sit slightly proud of the packed coffee.

Step 9

Place the filter insert into the filter and tighten it down on the coffee grounds.

Step 10

Pour approximately 1/3 to 1/2 inch (.85 to 1.2 cm) of condensed milk into the bottom of the coffee glass and place the filter onto of the glass.

Step 11

Bring water to the boil and remove from heat for a short time before pouring into the filter. The hot water should be poured into the filter, first just a bit to wet the grounds, and then slowing pour water to fill the filter. Adjust the filter insert so that the coffee only drips a few drops every few seconds. This can be done by tightening or loosening the filter insert.

Step 12

The coffee will take 7 to 10 minutes to drip.

Step 13

Remove filter and stir coffee and condensed milk until thoroughly mixed.

Step 14
