Banana Peach ‘Mushrooms’

Banana Peach ‘Mushrooms’

For a celebration this month, one of my children requested a special treat from the past, these simple Banana Peach ‘Mushrooms’.  I used to make them occasionally when the children were small, so long ago that Miss 15 cannot even recall them, and they always brought joy then.  They did the same now.

I hope that your loved ones will be delighted by them as well.

What you need:

  • One banana for every 3 or 4 ‘mushrooms’ (depending on the size)
  • Canned peach halves
  • Whipped cream, fairly stiff
  • Toothpicks

How to assemble:

  1. Spoon a few tablespoons of whipped cream onto each plate.
  2. Peel the banana, cut into 2-3 inch (~5-7 cm) sections, and remove the pointed ends.
  3. Stand banana sections up in the whipping cream.
  4. Partially insert a toothpick into the top of the banana.
  5. Carefully place a peach half onto the toothpick.

Serve this to your family or friends, young or old, and see the sparkle in their eyes!

(Unfortunately, I cannot recall where I first learned about these.)
