Sunkist Moro orange juice makes Bananas Foster a L'orange colorful, as well as tasty!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 medium bananas, peeled, sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup Sunkist® freshly squeezed moro orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. dark rum
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 4 tsp. honey roasted sliced almonds

Instructions: (Makes 4 servings)

  • Melt the butter in a medium-size skillet over low heat.
  • Add brown sugar to melted butter, increase heat to medium and stir to dissolve sugar. Let mixture cook about 1 minute.
  • Add banana slices and stir to coat with sugar butter.
  • Add the moro orange juice, increase heat and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes to let juice mixture thicken slightly, then reduce heat.
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of rum from bottle into a small container, and then add carefully to skillet. (It is better NOT to pour rum directly from bottle into the hot pan.) Stir to combine and cook 1 minute.
  • Place ice cream scoops in serving bowls. Divide and pour sauce over ice cream.
  • Garnish with honey roasted almonds and serve immediately.
  • Serving Ideas : Serve this dessert in hollowed orange shells. Take orange halves that have been juiced and remove all pulp. Place 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream in each hollowed orange half and keep in freezer until ready to serve.
  • NOTES : Sunkist moro oranges are also called "blood" oranges because of their deep red colored pulp. Orange-flavored liqueur can be substituted for the dark rum. Or, if you prefer, the alcohol can be completely omitted.
