Vegan Bananas Foster

Vegan Bananas Foster | Guess Who's Cooking | Healthier, vegan, plant-based, low sugar, dairy-free, gluten-free

This lower-sugar and vegan version of bananas foster maintains the most satisfying part of the dessert – warm bananas over a creamy and frozen dessert. To make it more authentic, you could use more oil and sugar to make more sauce. A mixture of sugar and molasses could be used in place of brown sugar. Banana liqueur would also be a nice touch – add when you add the rum.

Most recipes call for 1/4 – 1/2 cup sugar for the bananas, not to mention the sugar in the ice cream. This recipe has only 1 tablespoon of added sugar total, or 12.5-25% of the sugar of a typical recipe (again, not including the sugar in the ice cream).

If possible, use over-ripe bananas for the “ice cream” and under-ripe bananas to cook.

This unbelievably simple ice cream alternative mostly consists of one ingredient – bananas! You can also add a little vanilla extract for even better flavor. It tastes best when whipped up fresh because it will be smooth, creamy, and light.  Feel free to add other flavors as desired – peanut butter, chocolate, etc.

2 Ingredient Banana “Ice Cream”

Meal type Dessert
Make your own no-sugar-added, vegan, dairy-free "ice cream" with just bananas and vanilla extract.

Ingredients

  • 4-6 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or to taste)

Directions

Step 1
Peel the bananas and slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Freeze on a plate or cookie sheet in a single layer for at least 1 hour. You can also use parchment paper to prevent sticking.
Step 2
Allow banana slices to thaw a bit, about 15 minutes at room temperature. Puree in a food processor with vanilla extract, pulsing a few times to start, for several minutes, until smooth and whipped. Serve immediately as "soft serve" or freeze and scoop it out later.
