Bananas Foster Sundaes for 2
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
