Ingredients

  • cups low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 4 bananas, cut in half crosswise then lengthwise
  • tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tablespoon lemon juice, or dark rum
  • ¾ tablespoon cold butter, diced into small pieces
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ tablespoon icing sugar (confectioners sugar)

Instructions

  • Line a sieve or colander with cheesecloth and set over a bowl, leaving at least ½ inch clearance from the bottom. Spoon in yoghurt. Cover with plastic wrap and let drain in the refrigerator for at least 1½ hours. (See Note 1)
  • About 20 minutes before serving, position rack in top third of oven; preheat to 220°C. (425°F ; Gas Mark 7 -8). Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Place bananas, cut sides up, on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice (or rum, if using). Dot with butter and bake in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Turn on the griller (broiler); grill for about 2 minutes until the bananas are golden and the sugar is bubbling.
  • Meanwhile beat the cream, cocoa and icing sugar (confectioners' sugar) in a large bowl with an electric mixer, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice, until soft peaks form.
  • Push the cream to one side; add the drained yoghurt and fold into the cream with a rubber spatula until blended.
  • Drizzle the baked bananas with any juices accumulated in the pan and serve with a dollop of the chocolate cream.
