Topic: Banana Foster Smoothie... (3 msgs / 67 lines)
1) From: Ken B
Heh, I just "invented" this and all I can say is I really enjoy it!
T = Tablespoon, t = teaspoon
1 three shot AP brewed coffee.  (I used my Sumatra/Columbian decaf mix)
1-2 T Dark Brown sugar (I use 1, but some may like it sweeter)
1/16 (half an 8th) t real vanilla extract
2-3 small sweet bananas, very ripe  (I guess you could use 1 large 
"normal" store banana)
1-2 T Dark Rum
 
Add these to blender and puree the banana.
Add 1 cup 2% milk and 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, pulse blender to mix.
Add enough ice to make a smoothie of whatever consistency you like.
Enjoy!  (These would make fine desserts for a grill out with a "touch" 
more rum in them) ;-)
I think you could substitute Half and Half for the milk+heavy cream, but 
have not tried it.  You need the cream though, to sub for the butter in 
Bananas Foster.
I also think you could pour this into a mold and freeze it for a 
different dessert, though again, I have not tried this.  If I were to 
freeze it, I would probably use 4% milk half and half with heavy cream, 
and leave out the ice.
If anyone tries this as a frozen dessert, let me know how it turns out.  
I like it so much as a drink, I can't put it away long enough to freeze 
it. ;-)
Best Regards,
Ken B
