  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2 ripe medium bananas, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk


  1. In a small heavy skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Heat until golden brown, 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add bananas and brown sugar; cook and stir until bananas are tender, 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat; cool completely.
    Using a slotted spoon, place bananas in a blender. Reserve cooking liquid for topping. Add milk and ice cream to blender; pulse until mixed. Pour into glasses; drizzle with reserved butter mixture.
