I first made this Bananas Foster Parfait in the summer of 2012 for an autoimmune protocol cookbook I never wound up finishing. Along with many dozens of others tucked away in that dusty file on my hard drive, this was one of the first autoimmune protocol recipes I ever developed… and probably one of my all-time favorite quick-and-easy treats… that got completely forgotten amidst all the other things I’ve been doing in the years since. Well, I thought it was high time I dug out some of those oldies-but-goodies and put them to good use. You’re going to start seeing some of them roll out here on A Clean Plate after a bit of re-testing and re-shooting (because, let’s face it, what was tasty and original four years ago might not be tasty and original today).
I decided to start with this one because it’s not only crazy delicious, but super simple and so very versatile. This AIP version is served with whipped coconut cream but could also be served with coconut yogurt or your favorite AIP ice cream. And if you do dairy, plain old whipped cream, yogurt, or ice cream could also be used. And as long as we’re talking about substitutions, you can use a quarter cup of actual rum in lieu of the extract and cook it down nice and sticky if that’s what you’ve got on hand. This recipe even works out okay (or maybe even better) if a couple of your bananas (the ones that get cooked) are a bit overripe. Really, as long as you’ve got some bananas and a bit of sugar, this is a recipe you could make right now!
