    @Amanda Extra light olive oil (as opposed to extra virgin) has a high smoke point so works well on high heat. Plus it has good fats and adds a nice flavor to this recipe. We hope you like it!

    This sounds wonderful. My only concern is that I have heard olive oil is not the correct oil for using on such high heat. Can you recommend a different heart healthy oil to use instead?

    Interesting that the video called for 4, not 6 bananas and cheese, which I don't see in the recipe at all. No matter. I tend to adapt all recipes anyway, but just an insight. Thanks for the recipe!

    Simple soup to make vegan; Chicken stock=Vegetable stock Cream=Soja cuisine The nuts and banana make this very nutritious for those who don't eat meat :)
