Very delicious! I used Haagen Dazs light coffee and light vanilla ice creams. I did not add the optional caramel sauce. I used real whipped cream (that I whipped up myself -- sorry! :(). Thanks, Maito! Made for PRMR.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter, preferably natural
  • 1 banana, unpeeled
  • 14 cup sugar-free vanilla ice cream (or regular low fat)
  • 14 cup low-fat coffee ice cream
  • 2 teaspoons sugar-free chocolate syrup (or regular)
  • 1 teaspoon caramel sauce (optional)
  • 14 cup fat-free whipped topping (ie. whipped cream in a can)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Make a deep lengthwise slit in the unpeeled banana, without cutting all the way through. Use your fingers to make an opening where you cut, filling the banana with peanut butter.
  3. Wrap in foil, sealing the top to form a sort of “boat”. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Carefully open the foil. Use a knife to cut one of the ends of the peel off. Lift whole banana out in one piece (you will probably need two utensils for this), and place in a serving bowl.
  5. Scoop ice creams next to the banana and top all three with syrups and whipped cream. Serve immediately.
