After you try our chocolate chip skillet cookie and fudge Oreo ice cream cake, bananas foster is the next on the list of delicious DIY desserts perfected with Almost Heaven's homemade ice cream. With only 15 minutes to make, this recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy a hot and cold treat.
Bananas Foster is a classic dish with sliced bananas and nuts swimming in a rich caramel sauce. Though it's typically served over vanilla ice cream to create a delicious hot and cold effect, give Almost Heaven’s homemade Butter Pecan or Salty Caramel flavors a try instead! For a dish, the whole family can enjoy, use vanilla and rum extracts, or you can stick to the original helping of your favorite rum.
Prep: 10 min Cook: 5 min Total: 15 min Yield: 6 servings
1 stick salted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons rum extract
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 quart of Almost Heaven Butter Pecan or Salty Caramel
Note: If you would like to make a more classic dish, add ½ cup rum instead of the vanilla and rum extracts.
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, rum extract, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Stir and let the mixture simmer for a few minutes.
Add bananas and your nuts of choice and mix them into the sauce. If using rum, add now. Let cook until heated through for 2-3 minutes.
Pour each serving over a scoop of Almost Heaven Butter Pecan ice cream and serve immediately.
If you want to try another hot and cold mixture, make a hot chocolate float with a few scoops of Almost Heaven Bumpy Road, Mint Chocolate Chip, or any of Almost Heaven's 23 homemade ice cream flavors!
