• Ingredients
  • 2 Bananas, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 TBL Safflower oil
  • 1/3 C Dark rum
  • 2 TBL Molasses
  • 1 TBL Sweet butter, melted
  • 2 TBL Brown sugar
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • 4 SCOOPS Vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 C Pistachios, shelled
  • 4 Lime wedges


Bananas should be a little firm for this dish.

Putting it Together

1. In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, whisk together rum, molasses, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, until well-blended. Be careful, as rum will most likely ignite.
2. Rub the bananas with oil. Grill each side, over medium heat, for about 2 minutes.
3. Place bananas on separate serving dishes with a scoop of ice cream, drizzle a little sauce over bananas, sprinkle a few pistachios on top and garnish with a wedge of lime.
