1 tablespoon rum extract *optional
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups bananas, sliced in 1/2 inch segments
1/4 cup cinnamon baking chips or 3/4- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
In a large skillet add the rum extract and heat until it approaches a simmer. Carefully ignite with a match to allow the alcohol to burn out. Stir in the butter and brown sugar until melted. Add the bananas and gently stir for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat. Stir in the cinnamon baking chips or cinnamon and pour into a blender. Add the ice cream and mix until smooth. Pour mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for 3-4 hours or until solid. Serve with shortbread cookies.
*If you like milder flavors dilute the mixture by adding additional vanilla ice cream. My spouse loves Banana Fosters and therefore loved this recipe as is. I created this ice cream with him in mind. Love you "Other Half"!
