Story Behind this Recipe

I saw on a site for cooking tips that bananas contain a substance called "pectin" that binds well with proteins in milk, especially when heated, thereby thickening the surrounding mixture in the process. I thought I could use that idea in a nice dessert, so I tried a treat with tofu. Tofu desserts are one my favorite things to make right now.
