Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.
Maple syrup: The combination of sugars and high mineral content quickly travels to the liver and becomes instant fuel of phytonutrient composition. It’s like an IV for the liver containing the best of both worlds: a vast array of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients (many of them still undiscovered) coupled with high-quality sugar on which the liver thrives.
Baked Bananas Foster
Makes 3 servings
2 ½ tablespoons maple syrup, divided
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons maple sugar
¹⁄8 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the bananas in half lengthwise and arrange them in a baking dish lined with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir together ½ tablespoon of the maple syrup with the cinnamon, maple sugar, and sea salt until well combined.
Brush the banana slices with the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, making sure to coat both sides. Spread the cinnamon mixture evenly along the top of the banana slices and bake them in the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until the bananas are soft and golden brown.
Remove the baked bananas from the oven and serve alongside Banana Nice Cream if desired.
Banana Ice Cream Recipe
3 frozen bananas
2 tablespoons warm water
Roughly chop the frozen bananas and place them into the food processor. Process the bananas, adding warm water by the tablespoon as needed to prevent sticking. Stop processing once the bananas have reached a smooth, soft-serve consistency. Enjoy immediately or place in the freezer to set for 2 to 4 hours.
