Low Fat Flaming Bananas Treat
Nutritional Information: Serves 3, Fat: 8 g, Cal: 299, KJ: 1256, WW: 5 Points
This is yet another one of my favourite low fat banana recipes. You can impress your guests with your culinary skills when cooking this one! (It's just amazing how a little bit of fire on your food can mesmerise your audience... but try not to set yourself on fire, as this may scare your guests!)
Low fat flaming bananas are the type of low fat snack or dessert you can prepare to impress your guests, date, signifant 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.
As for nutrition benefits, bananas give you an instant, sustained and substantial energy boost, as well as fibre... and you know what fibre is good for... That's right! It is good for you! ;-)
Unfortunately, this is not a diebetic dessert recipe, as it contains sugar. And I wish I could tell you to substitute the sugar for artificial sweetener, but the truth is that bananas themselves contain three natural sugars: sucrose, fructose and glucose. So, if you are a diabetic, perhaps you should avoid this recipe (unless your doctor tells you otherwise, of course).
Your shopping list for next shopping day should include the following:
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.
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 burn the banana a bit, and you may not like the flavour.
If you wish, you can serve it over your low fat vanilla ice cream.
