I started watching Suits and I love it. I planned on it being my workout show and it was working out okay at first, but then one night my foot was bothering me and nothing was on that we wanted to watch so… I put Suits on. Bad idea, because I got the Mr hooked on it and now I can’t use that as my workout show or he’ll be bummed I watched without him.

It’s a good show. You should watch it if you haven’t yet. Free via Amazon Prime!

But because I’m now out a workout show, I want your suggestions. Any amazing shows I need to catch up on? Preferably that are available on Amazon since we don’t do Netflix streaming.

Also, I’d really like to stop complaining about the weather. So if someone could please let Mother Nature know that it’s May… nearly June even and it should be bright sunny and warm, that’d be awesome.

I’m ready for it. You know…sun, warmth and Summer like days, even though technically we have weeks to go before that’s official. I’m over the early Spring like weather. Agree?

I have other recipes ready to share with you and I was *this* close to sharing something totally different, but then I couldn’t. I really wanted to share this one. It was so good I couldn’t wait. You need it in your life. And because the weekend will be here before we know it, that means brunching and snacking and hanging out with friends and family so… you need a great recipe for all of that! So, here you go!

Super moist banana bundt cake with sweetened shredded coconut throughout. This flavorful cake is then topped off with a tart lime glaze and a sprinkle of zest. By far one of my favorite banana dishes to date.

If you love banana baked goods, then you definitely need this coconut banana bundt cake in your life.

    I seriously don’t bake enough bundt cakes, but I think that is going to change with this beauty! I love the combination of banana, coconut, and lime, so tropical and perfect for summer (even if mother nature can’t make up her mind on if it’s winter or summer)!

      Rachel — May 31, 2014 at 10:52 am

      Bundt cakes are way more fun that traditional cakes :)

    Ooohh, banana and coconut sounds like an awesome combo! Suits is one of my favorite shows. Try another USA show during your workout. Covert Affairs and Royal Pains are both addictive and will make the time fly by.

      Thanks for the recommendations! I’ll definitely check them out :)

    lea @ healthy coconut — August 2, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    I love SUITS too, I actually have season 3 playing in the background right now. I started having Suits as my treadmill show too, but I got hooked too and didn’t want to watch only when I’m working out. I’m totally hooked on this show now too.

    I’ve pinned this recipe a few weeks ago and I’m excited to make it tonight. Going to a brunch tomorrow. I might play around using coconut oil, hope it works

    • #
      Rachel — August 3, 2014 at 9:18 am

      Good luck! I haven’t tried it with coconut oil. If it turns out with the change, please report back! :)

    Michele — August 11, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    I don’t have a 6 cup bundt pan. Mine is either a 10 or a 12 cup. Would I be able to double the recipe or what do you suggest?
    Thank you.

    • #
      Rachel — August 11, 2014 at 7:21 pm

      If you have a 12 cup, double the recipe and watch it as it bakes, testing for doneness and increasing the time as needed. Good luck! :)

    lea @ healthy coconut — August 15, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    I made it with 1/3 C coconut oil and toasted the coconut flakes for more flavor. It was great, thanks for the recipe.

      So glad to hear it! :)

    When to add shredded coconut? You didn’t mention it in your recipe!

      Rachel — August 23, 2014 at 7:27 am

      Sorry about that! Mix it in at the very end.
