I love a good Bananas Foster Dessert. It was one of the first classic desserts I learned to make when I was attending a trade school for culinary arts in high school. This dessert is full of sweetness and comes with quite the show-bananas set on fire.

As much as I love this dessert, it doesn't fit too well in my healing journey at the moment. I decided to come up with a healthier version of the dessert so I did'nt feel like I was missing out. When I say it's the best bananas foster smoothie, I mean it.

What is bananas foster?

Bananas foster is a classic New Orleans dessert made by cooking bananas in rum, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes walnuts. The caramelized banana sauce is served over vanilla ice cream. Don't worry, the alcohol from the rum is burnt off during the flambe or cooking stage.

How to make this recipe

  1. The first step to making The Best Bananas Foster Smoothie is to make my vegan caramel sauce. Make the sauce then seet it aside to cool while you continue on making the rest of the recipe.
  2. Next, combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high for about one minute.
  3. Lastly, drizzle some additional vegan caramel sauce on the inside of the glasses then pour the smoothie pour the top. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon, coconut whipped cream or extra caramel sauce. Enjoy!

Equipment you will need

  • Blender. Vitamix is my favorite brand
  • Coconut sugar
  • Ground cinnamon

Bananas foster milkshake

Oh yes, you read that right. This recipe can be made into a bananas foster milkshake. Replace the ice with 2 cups of dairy-free vanilla ice cream and add a splash of plant based milk. Blend all the ingredients together and serve in two glasses.

Topping with coconut whipped cream and an extra drizzle of vegan caramel sauce is a must!

      Hi Ellen, I am limited on the links I can provide. The caramel sauce recipe is in the post towards the top, not on the recipe card itself.
