Ingredients
  • 1 (15-ounce) can crushed pineapple, in natural juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 ripe, firm bananas
  • 6 scoops vanilla light ice cream or frozen yogurt, 1/4 cup each
  • 6 fresh mint leaves, optional
Directions
  • Combine the pineapple with juice, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook over a medium heat, uncovered, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the juice is reduced somewhat, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

  • Cut the bananas in half crosswise. Cut each banana half lengthwise, being careful not to cut all the way through. Split the banana halves open and place each one on a small dessert plate. Top each banana with a scoop of ice cream then about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the warm pineapple mixture. Top each with a mint leaf, if using, and serve.
