Recipe: Banana Mousse

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I like a little dessert, and I was looking into making chocolate mousse with the whipping cream I had on hand. Semi cooked egg yolks didn’t appeal to me, so I considered banana mousse since I also had some ripe bananas on hand. I would never order this anywhere without a taste test first, as banana desserts are only appealing to me when it is made with fresh banana. Here is the very simple and tasty recipe:

1 ripe banana mashed

1 tablespoon rum

2 tablespoons maple syrup

dash of vanilla extract to taste

1 cup whipping cream

In small bowl, mash banana and mix with rum, maple syrup and vanilla extract. In a chilled bowl, whip cream until stiff with electric mixer. Add banana mixture to cream and mix until blended. Chill and serve topped with chopped nuts for crunch. Makes 3-4 servings

Note: This can easily be adapted to coconut milk. The coconut milk needs to be full fat and chilled in order to create a whipped cream like texture
