Low Fat Flaming Bananas

You’ll go bananas with this delicious recipe for Flaming Bananas!

Low fat flaming bananas is the type of low fat snack or dessert you can prepare to impress your guests, date, significant other, the kids, or all of the above!

But perhaps the best feature of this recipe is that you not only get to enjoy its sweet and delicious taste, but you will derive pleasure in the process of making it.

The sweet taste of bananas makes them a popular choice of fruit and the cooking process turns them into a soft, warm, caramelized treat.

Depending on your sugar levels and medical advice, diabetic people can adapt this recipe by substituting the sugar for artificial sweetener. However, if your sugar level is high, or is particularly susceptible to bananas, then you should stay away from it (... sorry!).


2 Tbsp low fat butte

This is what you do

Set aside the bananas, rum and low fat ice cream, and combine the rest of the ingredients in a large casserole.

The alcohol in the rum will be burnt later, so no need to worry about that.

Microwave on high until melted and bubbly for about 1 to 1½ minutes.

Next, add the bananas and microwave on high for about 1 minute, and stir.

Pour the rum into small custard cup, and nuke it in the microwave for about 20 seconds on high.

Now, this is the fun part...

Carefully (without burning your eye lashes, that is!) light with a match and pour over the banana mixture. Try not to let the flame last for too long, as this will actually give a bit of a burnt taste, and you may not like it.

If you wish, you can top it with low fat vanilla ice cream.
