The banana split gets a modern twist, thanks to roasted bananas and homemade frozen yogurt. Never made your own frozen yogurt? It’s ridiculously easy—just stir together plain yogurt, a bit of heavy cream, sugar, and light corn syrup till the sugar dissolves, then freeze it in your ice cream maker. The hot fudge sauce comes together in a couple of minutes in the microwave, and the roasted bananas get brown and caramelized under the broiler (after being brushed with butter and sprinkled with a mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, a tiny amount of cayenne pepper—for warmth, not heat—and a pinch of salt). The final touch for the sundaes: a sprinkle of toasted sliced almonds and fresh berries or pomegranate seeds.
