Banana Rum Fluff


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.


  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tblsp. dark rum
  • 2 ripe bananas, pureed
  • 2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (Cool Whip)
  • 4 vanilla wafers
  • 4 tsp. dark rum
  • 1 banana for slicing

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

… and stir in the thawed whipped topping..


In each of four small dessert dishes, place a vanilla wafer and sprinkle each with 1 tsp. dark rum.

Spoon the banana mixture on top of the wafers and freeze for one hour or refrigerate for 3-4 hours.

4 servings.  Just before serving, add a few slices of banana to the top of the fluff.

  1. I’m sending this recipe along to my DD…her kids LOVE banana anything!
    We can’t eat them around this house…DH’s has hi pot. & I find they make me ravenous. Bummer because it sure looks good!! Maybe I can ask her to save me just a few bites. LOL
    Thanks for the recipe, Lillian.

  2. Oooh, I bet that would be just as good with a little almond flavoring, and it’s such an easy dessert to make. Thanks for the great idea. Even if I only buy two, they get ripe too fast for me, and I don’t like ripe, squishy bananas!

  3. I am pinning this for later this summer – my husband LOVES banana (and rum) so this will be perfect for those July and August evenings when it is 100 degrees at 10 PM!
