Bananas cooked in dark brown sugar, butter, rum, and cinnamon, served over ice cream with pecans... sounds absolutely delicious, right?
Obviously, Bananas Foster is quite a decadent dessert, but like any tasty treat, it's not low in calories or friendly on the waistline. Instead of missing out on this classic dessert, try a lighter, smoothie version.
It's almost as amazing as the real thing!
