Strawberry Banana Coupe



The recipe called for ice cream. I wanted to make it healthier and subbed vanilla Greek yogurt.

I didn't make the meringues. This would of worked a little better if the meringues were smaller. 

Ingredients:

16-20  small meringues

2 pints strawberries

2 bananas

2 tablespoon port wine or orange juice ( used OJ)

2 tablespoon powered sugar

2 cups vanilla ice cream ( used vanilla Greek Yogurt)

2 tablespoon grated chocolate ( optional)

Whipped cream ( optional)

Directions:

1. Hull strawberries. Rinse and drain well. Chop coarsely in a food processor.

2. Peel and chop banana, add to strawberry mixture in food processor. Add OJ and powered sugar. Pulse a few times until combined.

3. Place a few meringues into dessert glass.

4. Layer strawberry over meringue then layer of ice cream or vanilla Greek Yogurt. Add more meringues and repeat strawberry/ yogurt layers.

5. Garnish with mint and whipped cream.

6. Serve immediately.
