A lighter version of the traditional dessert. Also yummy served over pancakes instead of syrup.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

This is a quick and easy to prepare dessert that calls for just a few simple ingredients and yields delicious results with a beautiful presentation. Nice balance between the banana and orange flavors with just the right hint of butterscotch flavor from the brown sugar. We'll make this again when the need for an instant gratification dessert strikes tho next time we both agree we ll add a little more sugar as it wasn t quite sweet enough for us. Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 31 May 2014 A quick dessert that is different from common desserts. The syrup has a nice flavor with the juice from the orange added. I did toast the almond slices and the crunch was a nice contrast to the ice cream and the bananas. Read More

A very easy perfect dessert for our Valentine's Day. Made exactly as written; but used crushed walnuts in place of the optional almond slices. Will make this again; it is a keeper for me!! Thanks PAMELA D for sharing. Read More

I really enjoyed this "Skinny Foster." I made a dairy-free (vegan) version with coconut oil (instead of butter) and coconut ice cream and reduced the sugar. Thank you PAMELA D. aPROpos of nothing for sharing your recipe. Read More
