If you’ve ever had the real deal, full fat version of bananas foster, it is amazing! While I am a big fan of indulging every once in a while, sometimes, you want something that you can have “just because”. This is one of those desserts.
This dessert is something I would make for my husband and I late at night after the kids had gone to bed, it was our little treat. Of course, I made it with a lot more butter and real, creamy ice cream.
I had a craving for it the other day and decided that I probably should not be eating ice cream in the middle of the day, especially after I had gone for a run. The fact remained, I still wanted it. I also didn’t want to take the important elements away, so I got to work.
In simple dishes, there are no substitutes for the real thing, sometimes, you just need to use a little less and it still tastes fantastic. A tiny bit of butter, a little brown sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup to make this replica. And what about that ice cream? Forget about it. Greek yogurt with honey and cinnamon is a close second (okay, not really, but it does taste really great with this).
