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
Allene Bary-Cooper, Wichita Falls, Texas writes, “This decadent dessert is a taste of Heaven. The hot mixed berry topping seeps through the brownie layer into the cool vanilla ice cream for a zippy chilled cake. Yum!”
NOW THAT our nest holds only two of us, I've had to develop many dishes for two.
My husband and I love this dessert, and it also makes an elegant finish to a meal when company comes. You'll hear lots of "oohs" and "aahs"!

“This fruit-filled dessert is yummy,” promises Nancee Melin of Tucson, Arizona. “For even faster preparation, you can buy cut-up fruit from the produce department. For an elegant touch, I like to garnish it with fresh mint sprigs.”
"This fruity luscious dessert makes a wonderful ending to a special dinner," says Joyce Cooper of Mount Forest, Ontario. "When fresh strawberries are not available, I substitute frozen unsweetened berries, thawed and drained."
For big chocolate taste, Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin treats her family to this thick ice cream topping. "It's a snap to make the fudgy sauce," she writes. "And we like it better than the store-bought kind!"
THIS pretty dessert is an impressive end to any meal. Refreshing and light, it's just the right touch for every sweet tooth.
I saw it pictured in a magazine many years ago and decided to try it. It's always been a hit at my house.
