Spring Roll Bananas – A Quick Afternoon Snack

In our church, we usually have this once a month gathering for fellowship, singing, and dancing. What we usually do is assign one person to host the Youth gathering, Ladies’ fellowship or Men’s Meeting, another person for the program, another one for icebreaker games and few more people for some fun activities.

The other assignments can be quite easy, but if you’re assigned to be the host, sometimes it is challenging to think of a snack that will fill up everyone’s tummy while being both delicious and affordable.

One convenient snack that is local to our country is “Turon” or Spring Roll Bananas. Instead of a typical meat mixture that is savory, this one is more of a dessert or snack.

What we locally use is the Saba variety of banana but this snack can be very versatile because you can actually use any kind of banana! The spring rolls make the magic of this easy yet very delicious snack, you just wrap whatever ingredient you have on hand and you already have a nice snack that everyone can enjoy.

So now that you already have an idea, why don’t we try to make your own Spring Roll Bananas so you can easily impress your friends at your upcoming church gatherings?

What’s nice about this snack is that it’s not only easy to prepare, but it can also be prepared ahead of time and stored in the freezer! Are you ready to try it? Let’s start rolling!

Here are the ingredients that you’ll need: 10 Ripe Saba Banana (Plantain, Cavendish or other variety will work), 1/2 cup brown sugar, 10 pcs Lumpia Wrapper or Rice Wrapper, Oil for Frying, Optional Ingredients: Mini marshmallows, Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter, Cheese, Jackfruit, Mango, Jams
