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

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 cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg until blended. Add bananas and pecans; cook until bananas are glazed and slightly softened, 2-3 minutes, stirring gently.
  2. Remove from heat; stir in extract. Serve with ice cream.
