Why I Love This Recipe

This is my own recipe. Makes enough frosting for 30


Ingredients You'll Need

9 tablespoons (1 stick + 1 tablespoon) unsalted butter, at room temperature
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
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet.

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.

Add the coconut-pecan mixture. Mix until incorporated.
