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.
