This creamy dessert with ricotta/chevin cheese, banana and mint is a refreshing and delicious treat.
Place some ricotta of plant-based chevin in a bowl, add some icing sugar (enough to sweeten to your preference) and some grated lemon zest and mix perfectly with a spoon. Whip some cold yogurt/coco yogurt and add it to the ricotta/chevin mixture with slow and delicate movements. Transfer to the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Peel and cut a banana into half-moon slices. Add a little lemon juice to prevent them from turning black.
Spread the bananas in the bottom of some glasses. Layer the ricotta/chevin mix on top of the bananas. Garnish the surface of each creamy dessert with a drop of maple syrup and chopped fresh mint. Transfer to the refrigerator.
When ready to serve, remove the creamy dessert from the refrigerator and bring it to the table.
Fresh bananas are available year-round. Unlike some fruits, bananas continue to ripen after picking. Bananas will ripen steadily at room temperature. To ripen faster, people can try keeping them in a paper bag. Refrigerated bananas will ripen more slowly. The outer peel of the banana will darken in the fridge, but the banana itself will stay intact longer.
