4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup mashed bananas
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
3 cups confectioners' sugar

Stir in coconut and pecans.


Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until coconut is golden brown, about 8 minutes.


Cool before adding to the frosting.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the bananas, lemon juice, and vanilla.


In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese and remaining stick of butter with an electric mixer on medium speed.


Add the sugar, then the banana mixture. Blend well.
