Nice Cream Parfait with Brown Butter Caramel and Kiwi Lime Salsa

I wanted to turn the banana bread I had recently baked into a dessert so I created this delicious banana nice cream parfait.

Nice cream is a puree of frozen banana, sometimes mixed with other fruits or chocolate, to become a vegan option for ice cream.

I love the texture of the frozen bananas once puréed and then smothered in brown butter caramel sauce. The kiwi and lime add some acidity to the dish giving balance to the sweetness of the banana and caramel. Happy cooking.


Chef notes:

Try making fruit-flavored nice cream with frozen mango, strawberries, or blueberries puréed with the banana.

Food processor

  • Peel the kiwi and cut it into small dice.

Finishing the plate

  • Cut the banana bread into small cubes and place them into a mixing bowl.
