A lot of times, most of the time, my recipes are complicated, and can’t be replicated in a working environment. I was challenged to create a creative, in-store pairing with the Brazil Santa Ines. I love how sweet this coffee can be, how it can stand up to distinct flavors like bananas, which really showcase it’s creaminess. Yes, this coffee pairs well with banana bread, but I wanted to do something more. I was having a craving for sushi, and then it hit me.. banana sushi.
Using my resources at Starbucks, I decided to top my banana sushi with caramel and mocha drizzle and the mixed nuts package for the classic oatmeal. You could also use peanut butter, Nutella, dried fruit, the possibilities are endless!
- one banana
- caramel drizzle
- mocha drizzle
- one package of mixed nuts
- peel the banana and place on a cutting board. slice the banana in even slices, about ¾" in length.
- once the banana is sliced, it's time to add the toppings. i like to make sure the slices are flush together while i add the toppings, and then space them out afterwards (food stylist at heart)
- there is no real technique here, just have fun 🙂
