Dietician's Tip: For a more decadent sauce, you can add 1 tablespoon of butter after the orange juice has reduced. Cook butter just until melted.


  • 4 very ripe sliced medium bananas
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans


Heat a medium saucepan to medium heat. Add bananas and brown sugar and saute until sugar dissolves, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add orange juice, vanilla and cinnamon. Let the orange juice reduce for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top with pecans before serving.
