Grilled Bananas with Frozen Yogurt and Maple Cream
  • 4 bananas, firm but ripe
  • 2tablespoons melted butter
  • 2tablespoons light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  • Fresh mint leavesfor garnish
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. To make maple cream sauce, combine cottage cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on grill rack. Peel bananas and halve them lengthwise. In a shallow baking dish large enough to hold bananas in a single layer, stir together butter and brown sugar and add bananas, turning gently to coat. Using a metal spatula or tongs, transfer bananas to foil on grill. Grill until browned and cooked through, 2–4 minutes per side.
  3. Place two grilled banana slices on each serving plate; dollop with 1/4 cup vanilla frozen yogurt and top with 2 tablespoons maple cream sauce. Garnish with mint.
