bananarum-top

At the end of each week, I always seem to have a banana or two that should be used that day.  I have containers of banana puree in the freezer, I’ve made every kind of cake, muffin, pudding, cookie and bread.  I was looking for something different to use up some bananas and put together this chilled dessert which is very good with a strong banana flavor and a little kick of rum.  Easy and quick to make.

In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and 1 Tblsp. of rum until smooth.  Add pureed bananas ….
