Family Friendly Banana Fosters

Is it just me or are you getting sick of winter too?

Give me some sun, give me some tropics, give me some Virgin Banana Fosters.

Easy Banana Fosters {Virgin Style}

Banana Fosters is a deliciously rich dessert that is filled with spiced bananas and walnuts floating in an intense caramel sauce.

It’s usually drowned in rum then flambéd to cook off the alcohol, but I skipped the alcohol to make this a family friendly dessert that will surely become a favorite.

Don’t worry though, the rum flavor is still there with a rum extract.

Oh yes, you will get the full Banana Fosters effect with this one.

There is something so enticing about a warm and cold dessert.

The flavors of the cold vanilla ice cream succumbing to the hot spiced bananas and walnuts is pure bliss.

You need this in your life.

    First of all … it’s Bananas Foster, not Banana Fosters.
    Secondly, (although it sounds like a delicious addition) I have never seen a Bananas Foster recipe with walnuts. It is a really popular New Orleans dessert, though and pecans are the but of choice in that region… bet that would be good…
    Finally, when making the non-alcoholic version, I use coconut milk with a few drops of banana extract instead of the banana liqueur and apple cider with a bit of molasses stirred in instead of the rum. Obviously, I can’t get the flambe, but the flavor is quite good.

      Oops … make that “nut of choice” … darned autocorrect!
      And … I meant to say that you did a great job with the photos and your dessert does look delicious!

    I love this idea. Flambe-ing things in my kitchen makes me super nervous, so I am glad you skipped that in this!
