Roasted Banana Paletas made with milk, a little cream….and a spot of rum. I slightly adapted this recipe from my “Paletas” cookbook by Fany Gerson, and I’ll make these babies again and again this summer. They’re really good! The recipe calls for cream, but next time I’m going to sub out the cream and use coconut milk instead. I also think a swirl of melted dark chocolate in the mix might not be a bad idea either.
I cut back considerably on the sugar from what was called for in the original recipe…because, really – bananas are plenty sweet on their own – especially well ripened bananas. You could probably go with a little honey instead – or don’t add any sweetener at all. If you wanted to get crazy healthy with them – you could go Greek and use yogurt in lieu of any milk at all. Or what about layering 1/2 fudgsicle and 1/2 roasted banana-sicle? There’s just so many possibilities with these roasted banana paletas!
I could see these as being a really great treat for kids (minus the rum, of course). Bananas and milk – heck have em for breakfast!
I have a friend (Jackie) and her dad is 91 years old. Fred eats a banana a day. He’s on no meds, has a great sense of humor…and loves to sing the song “Bad Bad Leroy Brown”. Good genes? Maaaybe. But then again, maybe it’s the bananas. Moral of the story….Eat your bananas!
The recipe for these Roasted Banana Paletas (roasted banana popsicles) is definitely a keeper!
I hope you love!
