Bananas foster was invented by Brennen’s in New Orleans and just so happens to be my favorite non-chocolate dessert. I love bananas foster so much that it inspired my famous Bananas Foster Layer Cake. Now I give you a fun twist on classic New Orleans dessert: Bananas Foster Milkshakes!
Bananas foster involves cooking bananas in brown sugar, butter, and rum with a bit of cinnamon so here, I’ve added dark rum, fresh banana, and caramel sauce to vanilla ice cream for a milkshake that is out-of-this-world. Seriously. Top it with cinnamon whipped cream and your guests will be swooning when you hand them this epic milkshake!
Note: I’ve written this up for two milkshakes but it’s easy to halve or multiply. I used one spoonful of caramel sauce per milkshake but if you want it more caramel-y, you could use two spoonfuls per milkshake.
