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.
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.
