A Lighter Bananas Foster!

posted in: Recipes 0

What's better than dessert? A dessert where you can cook with fire! There's S'mores, creme brulee and bananas foster! My recipe for bananas foster focuses on a reduced fat version by cutting back on the butter and using milk instead of cream (ignore the fact I serve it over ice cream.) I hope you enjoy!!


2 TB Butter
1/3 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Banana cut into thin slices
1/4 T Cinnamon
1/4 Cup pecans
1/4 Cup dark rum
1/4 Milk or heavy cream


  • Melt butter in a small pan over medium heat.
  • Add brown sugar and stir to incorporate.
  • Remove from burner and add the rum. Take your match/lighter and ignite. Woohoo! Flambe! Return to the burner and shake the pan a little. Each time you shake, the flame will intensify as more alcohol burns off. Once the flames go out completely, move on to the next step (maybe a few minutes)
  • Add the bananas, cinnamon and pecans to the pan. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add the milk or cream. Cook for another 4 minutes.

That’s it! Let cool slightly and then serve over vanilla ice cream!
