Spiked Bananas Foster Nice Cream

“Nice cream,” the ice cream alternative that swaps in bananas for the usual cream or custard, was originally invented as a healthy-ish substitute to the frozen dessert, but it’s grown into a tasty treat in its own right—one that happens to be super simple to make. This version was inspired by the classic rum-soaked New Orleans dessert, Bananas Foster. It’s everything you love about the flaming showstopper transformed into one epic dessert.
