Coconut Bananas Foster

Happy Monday Everyone! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. again.

I’m back today to share with you my twist on a classic recipe. Ever since I posted my Coffee Bean Syrup & used it on a stack of waffles with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream, I have been wanting to create more things to put on top of waffles & ice cream. I mean…why not??!! It’s really the best way to eat waffles in my opinion. 🙂 I love certain flavors together- bananas & caramel, bananas & coconut, caramel & pecans, bananas & pecans – it’s very good each in their own pairings. So I figured that they would most definitely be good when put altogether for one decadent & absolutely delightful treat. Coconut Bananas Foster.

Now bananas foster is typically made with rum. Yes the alcohol is cooked out – but I still wanted to save my rum for other things. So I opted to use that Coffee Bean Syrup that I mentioned earlier in it’s place. YUM-O!!

Coconut Bananas Foster, the perfect topping for waffles and ice cream!

This time I used giant Belgian Waffles stacked high, topped with vanilla ice cream & then added my bananas foster.

  6. The mixture should be good and bubbly.
