Whole bananas are grilled, skin and all, for a great vanilla ice cream topping. Too simple, even a kid can do this!

We loved them tonight. Really added to a nice touch after grilling all day. An added note of my own is that you want to make sure your grill isn't too hot they're not steaks after all. We ended up adding chocolate to add a little better taste. Read More

My vote would have been a 4-star but my husband didn't like it. So three it is. Taste is good and interesting and I like the hot cold. I'll make again. Read More

The idea behind it sounded great. But I think it would taste better with just slicing regular bananas over the ice cream and turning it into a sundae. I didn't care for the bbq banana taste but that was just me. Kids might enjoy this. Read More

Try slicing the banana in half lengthwise then grill it flesh side down. Peel after top on vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt drizzle with honey and sprinkle with granola. YUM! Read More

I stumbled on this by boredom while grilling. I prefer a greener banana when grilling and to cut off the ends before putting them on the grill. Afterwards I cut the peel and sprinkled with sugar and cinamon. Read More

Use a super underripe banana or you run the risk of banana jelly when you are done. These were ok....I prefer mine fried. Read More
