Experiment #1 …. Sautéed Bananas with Cinnamon Crema wrapped in Strawberry Sheets

Strawberry sheets


2/3 cup strawberry juice

1 package (2 grams) Agar Agar


1. Mix 2/3 cup strawberry juice and 2 grams of Agar Agar in a sauce pan. If you feel the need to add a little something extra, like edible glitter, go ahead… I did 🙂

2. Bring to a boil (stirring frequently), then pour a small amount across a plate or serving dish with a large surface space. Tilt the plate so that the liquid spreads out across the surface with a thin coat.

3. Set aside for 15 minutes.



Sautéed Bananas


1 banana

1 Tbsp Butter

1 Tbsp Brown sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Crema Mexicana


  1. Slice the banana in half both vertically and horizontally, creating 4 pieces.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients (except Crema Mexicana) in a frying pan and heat until beginning to bubble.
  3. Place the banana quarters, peel side up, onto the pan.
  4. Cook for about 3-5 minutes over medium heat.

Cut the strawberry sheets into 4 squares. Remove the bananas from the peel and place on a strawberry sheet. Drizzle the Crema Mexicana around the banana then wrap the sheet to surround. Garnish with mint leaf or Guava Vodka Caviar (see next recipe)!


CONCLUSION: Make your sheets thin. My first batch was too thick and split when I tried to wrap them.
