If you’re not too concerned about how the dessert will look, you can still make it using unripe bananas since the taste will be the same, though sweeter.

All banana pieces should be cut in an even manner. Here’s how you can properly slice bananas:

- Make each half and then cut it vertically. I like to cut the bananas when the sauce is prepared.

This banana foster that is alcohol-free is delicious!
- 4 bananas (barely ripe)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 cups of drinking water
- 1 cup of peanuts (you could also substitute cashews, walnuts, or almonds)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
Make sure you have all the ingredients.
Put the butter into a pan at a low temperature. Stir it with the spoon until it melts, then mix in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Continue to stir.
In about 5 to 10 minutes, you will have syrup. Set the stove on low while cutting the bananas.
Peel the bananas and then sprinkle gently with some drops of lemon juice to stop the bananas from turning brown. Put them in the pan and add the butter and milk mixture that has been melted.
Mix until the pieces of banana melt and then form a smooth paste. Add the water, and continue to beat for a couple of minutes so that the mixture has slightly diluted.
Put this mixture in the skillet and cook it for 5 to 10 minutes at a medium-high temperature until it is darker and denser. If you are short on time, you could take this mixture into a blender, and after disintegrating the bananas, cook them until they are all cooked.
Then you can add the bananas and peanuts. Stir for about 5 minutes so that the bananas are cooked lightly. Switch off the stove and remove the pan from the stove.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
