Bananas Diablo

Spicy, sweet, hot and cool, this dessert bedevils the senses -- in the best way.

Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely minced
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons ginger liqueur or orange liqueur
3 ripe but firm bananas, sliced in half lengthwise, then crosswise
2 cups nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt or low-fat ice cream


Pre-prep: Mince pepper; grate ginger; slice bananas.

1. Coat a medium skillet with cooking spray. Place over moderate heat and melt butter. Add the pepper and ginger; saute for about 1 minute.

2. Add the brown sugar, stirring until it melts; swirl in the liqueur.

3. Gently lay bananas in sauce, turning once or twice to coat, warming just long enough to heat through.

4. Serve 3 pieces of banana over nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt or low-fat ice cream.
