Bananas Foster

Yesterday was a good day…mainly because I still had 7 points left to use after dinner. That meant I could have dessert. Yay!! I didn’t even use all of my remaining points on this dessert since it was only 5. The Bananas Foster is 3 Freestyle points per serving, and I had a 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream that was 2 Freestyle points. Make sure to calculate your ice cream because it could be different.

  1. Peel the banana. Cut in half, then cut in half lengthwise giving you four large pieces.
  2. In a small saucepan melt butter. Add brown sugar, dark rum, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
  3. Once the sugar has melted add the four banana pieces. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes then turn each banana piece over. Cook on the other side for 2 minutes.
