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.
BANANA RUM FLUFF
- 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.
