This recipe is one of the sweeter lower calorie desserts out there. It was a huge hit with all of my family and so incredibly easy to make. I had caramelized bananas at this amazing restaurant called Rios...i was having a craving and found the recipe on food.com. I could not bring myself to ingest that many calories on something so easily fixed :)

Directions

  1. 1. Cut banana lengthwise. Cut the halves into half -- making a total of four quarters.
  2. 2. Melt I cant believe its not butter! in a skillet. Keep heat on around medium low.
  3. 3. Brush bananas with melted "butter" from pan on a separate platter. Coat the entire banana pieces.
  4. 4. Place bananas into skillet.
  5. 5. Add brown sugar. You are mainly aiming to coat the bananas with it -- but -- you will notice that the brown sugar caramelizes pretty quick. I end up using about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and swirling the banana around in it.
  6. 6. Prepare a dish of low fat frozen vanilla yogurt.
  7. 7. Top with banana and drizzle caramel over.
  8. 8. Make sure your stove is turned off. :).
  9. 9. Eat a spoonful, close your eyes, and mmmm!
