"I LOVE this so much, when I didn't have lime one time I just substituted for lemon juice, but it's a taste difference with lemon & lime. However this is one of my favorite banana recipes :D"

"OMgoodness, this sounds so good! In elementary school we used to have a dessert similar to this using mayo in the dressing with the coconut toasted, it was my favorite. I think this is a wonderful lower fat option, Thank You for the memory, Deb in Ocala, Fla"
