4 Points Per Serving


(Donna's Notes: the person who shared this treat with us did not suggest low calorie or FF ingredients, but I would suggest using them and recalculating the point value for this treat.)

2 large bananas

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons margarine

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups ice cream


Slice 2 large bananas; place banana in a 1-quart microwave-safe casserole. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract over bananas; dot with 2 teaspoons margarine. Cover with heavy-duty plastic wrap, and vent. Microwave at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar melts, stirring once. Spoon 1/2 cup ice cream into each of four individual bowls; spoon banana mixture evenly over ice cream. Serve immediately.
