Coffee of the Week

Blended Banana Coffee
I  highly recommend you drink this yummy concoction as soon as you can after making it.  You don't want it to settle.

1 tbs butter
1/2 banana, peeled sliced, & mashed
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup hot freshly brewed coffee
1/2 c heavy cream
1 tbs confectioners/powdered sugar

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.  Stir in the banana, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Now simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from the heat.  Place the coffee, cream, and sugar in the blender and add the banana mixture.  Blend for 15 to 20 seconds until smooth.
Serve at once.  Yummy for the tummy.
Personally, I've always been one to indulge excessively.  If you're going to go banana, go banana all the way with a chocolate banana coffee cake.
