(Prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 10 minutes)
2 large plantains
1 cup canola oil
With a paring knife, slice both ends of the plantain off and gently slice through the skin lengthwise being careful not to cut deeply into the fruit.
Slice the plantain on a sharp diagonal to make long chips about ¼” thick.
In a large skillet, heat the oil to 350-375 degrees. Gently place the plantain slices into the oil for 2-4 minutes each side or until golden brown. Flip over and brown the other side. Remove to a paper towel to drain and immediately sprinkle granulated sugar over the chips.
In a small bowl, place 1-2 scoops vanilla ice cream. Place 4-5 chips around the side of the bowl while still warm. Dust the chips and ice cream with cinnamon. And added sweet treat would be to drizzle with honey. Garnish with a mint leaf.
