How To Make Grilled Bananas with Ice Cream

January 7, 2013

Don’t end the cookout with dinner. Keep the grill warm and make this incredibly tasty, incredibly easy dessert to finish off on a high. It’s a Weber Grills ‘Recipe of the Month.’

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Grilling time: 5 to 7 minutes


2 tablespoons caramel sauce
1 tablespoon dark rum
4 bananas, ripe but not soft, unpeeled
16 fresh raspberries
4 scoops vanilla ice cream (optional)


In a small bowl, mix the caramel sauce and rum until smooth. Cut each banana in half lengthwise but do not cut through the skin on the bottom. Open each banana slightly, like a book. Drizzle the caramel mixture evenly over the cut sides of each banana. Evenly space 4 raspberries inside each banana. Grill over Direct Medium heat until the bananas are warm and the skins are dark, 5 to 7 minutes, turning once. Peel the bananas and serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
