Coconut-Lime Banana Bread
Moist, sweet banana bread with tropical notes of coconut and a deliciously tangy lime glaze. Reduced Almond Breeze Coconut Almondmilk adds flavor and body. The small amount of butter adds flavor and structure to the loaf – however if you prefer a completely dairy free option switch the butter for 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Bring coconut blend almondmilk to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce to a high simmer. Cook until reduced to ¼ cup, about 7 minutes. Cool slightly. Combine with mashed bananas; set aside.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Combine granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl with a mixer at medium until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in reserved banana mixture, lime juice and vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until combined. Stir in ½ cup coconut. Spoon batter into a 9”x5” loaf pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons coconut.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosely cover with foil during the final 15 minutes of baking if the top is getting too browned. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan.
To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar and ¼ cup lime juice; drizzle over warm bread. Cool completely on wire rack.
