Oh yum--this sounds great. And I'll have to be sure to check out your link to the coconut ice cream as well. I'm sitting in a Panera right now and nothing on the menu sounds as good as this recipe. I'm looking forward to giving it a try once I get the ingredients. Thanks for SHARING and now I'll share it with my friends, too--maybe I can get a friend to make them for me since my shopping trip is still a few weeks away. :-)

J.S. this sounds like an awesome recipe. I wish you had incorporated a picture to go with this. What we get here is fried banana chips-fine slices of fried raw banana, very similar to potato chips. Those taste awesome and I bet this would taste awesome too.

Will be trying this soon.

Thanks for sharing. voted up.

Hello Sueswan! Deep frying can be very dangerous. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, have someone else who is comfortable do it for you. I am used to it as I have worked in the restaurant business for half my life. I hope that you enjoy this recipe and come back after you have tried it to let me know what you think! Thanks for the comment and the votes!


Sueswan on October 04, 2011:

Sounds delicious but I would have someone else make them for me as I am too nervous when it comes to deep frying.

Voted up and awesome.
