Bananas with coffee zabaglione
SmartPoints® value per serving
Looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day dessert recipe? This sweet, creamy treat whips up in no time! All you need is 20 minutes, and this dessert is designed perfectly for 2 people. Zabaglione is a simple, fun Italian dessert made with egg yolks, sugar, and traditionally Marsala wine, but we use cooled coffee instead so guests of all ages can enjoy it. If you're serving a 21+ crowd, you can definitely try with the wine instead. Flavored coffees like hazelnut, cinnamon, or vanilla cream will provide a bit of a bolder taste, but make sure to account for any change in the nutritional value.
2 large, ripe
Splenda Granulated no calorie sweetener
Uncooked egg yolk(s)
¼ cup(s), brewed, cooled
- Peel bananas, slice and divide between two individual serving bowls.
- Bring 1 inch of water to a simmer over medium heat in a high saucepan. Meanwhile, whisk yolks and Splenda together in a medium bowl that will fit snugly over saucepan; whisk in coffee and vanilla.
- Place bowl over saucepan and reduce heat so water simmers slowly. Continue whisking egg mixture over simmering water until thick, foamy and doubled in volume, about 3 minutes. Remove bowl from saucepan (be careful of escaping steam) and continue whisking off heat for 1 minute. Divide sauce between serving bowls. Yields 1 banana and about 1/3 cup of sauce per serving.
