Bananas Foster Sundaes Recipe

Bananas Foster Sundaes 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. —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 large firm bananas, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 3 cups reduced-fat vanilla ice cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg until blended. Add bananas and pecans; cook, stirring gently, until bananas are glazed and slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in extract. Serve with ice cream. Yield: 6 servings.

"This was delicious. My friends and family love this recipe and its very easy to make. I did triple the sauce recipe and added an extra banana. It served 5 of us. We each had a large bowl ( about 4 scoops of icecream each using a regular kitchen size icecream scooper not the large scoops you'd get in an icecream shop)."

"My sister-in-law loves Bananas Foster, so we brought it to dinner at a friend's home when she was also there. It turned out wonderful just as it is. We will certainly be enjoying it again. Thank you"

"My husband was wild for this dessert! I have always loved Bananas Foster; this had a little too much nutmeg for my own personal taste.

I will just cut it back next time. Yummy!"

"I had some extra bananas so decided to try this recipe. I followed the recipe except I eliminated the rum extract. It was very good! My husband and 12 year old son have requested this one again. Quick and easy to prepare with ingredients I had on hand."

"My husband and I both loved this recipe!! I will make it again and again I'm sure. I left out the rum and forgot to toast the pecans. It was still heavenly!"

"I substituted 1 tsp. of rum for the rum extract because I didn't have it in the house.

We also used light ice cream so I hope I compensated for the extra calories."

"YUM! This was so easy, different, and delicious. I used Smart Balance butter in place of real butter and it worked just as well."

"The picture seemed to show more sauce on the ice cream than the recipe made for six servings. I might double the sauce and leave the bananas the same next time. I used Meyer's Dark Rum because I didn't have any Rum Extract on hand."
