Egyptian Mowz bil-Laban (Banana with Milk) / Jawafa bil-Laban (Guava with Milk).

Here’s something you might not have known: the name banana is derived from Arabic Banan Al-Mowz, since bananas were not known in Europe until they were introduced by the Muslims. Banan means fingers in Arabic. The Portuguese introduced Banana plantations to South America during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Making banana or guava with milk is relatively the same process, only with guava you have to strain out all the seeds.
