Great dessert recipes always make a good meal a memorable meal. Mango Banana Phyllo Nests are a cute little treat that is healthy and sweet. Made with fresh fruit, these tasty pastries will become your favorite.



  • Crust:
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 sheets of frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • Filling:
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar substitute blend
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 medium banana, peeled, quartered lengthwise and diced
  • Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark rum


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using 1 Tablespoon of canola oil, lightly brush one side of each phyllo sheet. Cut each sheet with a sharp knife into four lengthwise strips and then cut each strip in half to make eight squares per sheet.
  3. In six alternating cups of a 12-cup muffin pan, lace eight squares of phyllo per cup, corners overlapping in the center. (There is not enough room to fill all 12 cups; six is manageable.)
  4. Press down gently to allow bottoms to take the shape of the muffin cup. Ruffle edged to create a nest appearance. Repeat with remaining five whole phyllo sheets.
  5. Place on a center oven rack, and bake 5 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven, and place muffin tins on a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Meanwhile, combine remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons of canola oil, brown sugar, and orange juice in a medium bowl. Add mango and banana, and toss gently, yet thoroughly, to coat.
  7. To serve, place phyllo nests on individual dessert plates, spoon equal amounts of mango mixture, about 1/3 cup , into each nest.
  8. Place confectioner's sugar in a fine-mesh sieve and sprinkle evenly over the edges of each nest. Spoon 2 tsp (10 mL) rum over each. Serve immediately.
