Saging Nilusak (Pounded Banana)

This is made from pounded banana with sugar and grated coconut. We called it "Bayo Bayo" here in Davao but others call it "Nilupak" ,"Linupak" or "Nilusak".

1 bunch of Banana (saba is the preferred banana in making linupak choose the quite green and yellowish in color or the quite ripe banana)

1 kilo Sugar

4-5 coconuts (then grate the coconut meat)

½ cup Margarine (if needed)

1. First, boil the bananas and wait for about 30 minutes until it is tender.

2. Then, prepare mortar and pestle. Peel the bananas and put it one by one in the mortar.

3. Pound it and add sugar and coconut to sweeten it, mixed them and pound it again until it become sticky.

4. Lastly, you could add some margarine to make it more savory. Just pound it some more and presto!
