Healthy Recipe: Bananas Foster Topping

A 'lite' version of the favorite New Orleans dessert, this healthy recipe is quick, easy, and delicious. Use this bananas foster topping with frozen yogurt, a phyllo cup, or crepes. Bananas are one of our best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. Healthy eating never tasted so decadent!

Makes about 4 servings

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 bananas, sliced
1 tsp banana extract
1 tsp rum extract (note: you cannot flambe with extract)
Ground cinnamon to taste (a pinch to 1tsp)
Vanilla frozen yogurt

In a sauce pan, add maple syrup and extract.  Turn heat on medium low. Before adding bananas, fill 4 dessert dishes with frozen yogurt and put in freezer.  Add bananas and gently stir until mixture is warm and bananas are only very slightly soft. (Watch the sauce pan carefully, as bananas can quickly turn mushy if cooked too long or at a high temperature.) Top yogurt with mixture and serve.
