  1. Heat butter, brown sugar, and orange juice in a skillet over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, add the banana. Cook until the banana has softened and the sauce is slightly syrupy, flipping the banana occasionally, about 2 minutes.
  2. Serve each slice of banana with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with the sauce and sprinkle with almond slices.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I scoop my ice cream into a plastic container, then place into freezer so it stays frozen. Put scoops into serving dishes once bananas are cooked.
