  • 6 ripe saba bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • few drops of kalamansi juice
  • sweetened condensed milk as much or as little as you want
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • cinnamon powder


  • Peel the saba bananas and cut each in half lengthwise.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet. Fry the bananas in hot butter until lightly browned.
  • In a clean saucepan, pour the honey and the kalamansi juice. Set over medium heat and add the bananas. Toss to coat each piece well and cook for about a minute and a half. The saba bananas will turn darker shade of brown; they will also be shiny.
  • Place a few pieces of bananas on a dessert plate. Pour sweetened condensed milk over them. Sprinkle with cinnamon powder. Serve warm.
