There’s a new fro-yo in the dining hall and it begs to be eaten.
Seriously though, the dining hall recently introduced a new frozen yogurt company, complete with all new flavors like Banana Creme Pie, Cake Batter, Irish Mint, and a few good classics like Vanilla and Chocolate.
Every trip to the dining hall is usually accompanied by a trip to the fro-yo machine, and yesterday I was really craving something warm and comforting for dessert. I immediately knew what I needed to make. Bananas Foster.
In case you do not know what bananas foster is, it is essentially a dessert consisting of bananas, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar, and rum. It is usually warm and drizzled over ice cream and seriously is one of my favorite desserts ever.
This adaptation to a traditional bananas foster recipe is lower in fat and meant for one. It also does not contain rum, making the recipe easier since you do not have to cook it. Oh and it’s absolutely to-die for.
1 ripe banana, sliced
2 tsp butter
4 tsp applesauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Add all the ingredients to a microwaveable bowl. Mix together and microwave for 1 minute. Done. The most delicious, gourmet-looking dessert:
Simple as that. I added mine on top of ice cream.
You can also put it on top of frozen yogurt, regular yogurt, mix in caramel sauce, or eat it plain. Oh, and you can make it again right after you finish licking the first bowl clean.
