Bananas Foster Sundaes for 2 Recipe

I have wonderful memories of eating Bananas Foster in New Orleans, and as a dietitian, wanted to find a healthier version. I combined the best of two recipes and added my own tweaks to create this Southern treat. And with this version, it's the perfect dessert for two! —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina

"Wow this is really good, I doubled all the ingredients but used only 1 banana and it was a perfect amount for 2. I didn't have orange juice so I used pineapple juice and I omitted the nutmeg since I don't care for that flavor . I will definitely be making this often, so yummy!"

"Thought it was very tasty but I doubled it and would recommend to do that even if just for 2 people. No bad at all for a lower cal recipe"
