Care for Kahlua cocktail?

This is the best Kahlua banana cocktail you will ever make. Once you start using Kahlua in your drinks you can begin your own drinks collection. Kahlua is so versatile and can be used in many ways – if you love coffee liquor.

So what do you do when you’re stuck with ripe bananas? Most people I know throw them away. I usually have one or two left that I tend to trash because no one, even if I pay them, will eat it in my house.

I wasn’t even going to consider a search for any recipe that calls for over ripen bananas. Seriously? I looked at my poor looking bananas and promised that I will find something creative to do with them and trashing it wasn’t an option. Now I’m not talking about over ripen bananas that lose color, taste or smell bad no. I’m not that desperate. I’m talking about bananas that once they show their first tiny sign of aging they are dismissed completely by everyone in my family. How sad.

What to do what to do? Ah…I love Kahlua liquor. Don’t you? I always have it in my pantry. So…ripe bananas…Kahlua…heavy cream (which I happened to have)…cardamon seeds (I’m always looking to spice things up). Bingo! Kahlua/banana cocktail. It’s like a shake that brings the kid out of me…but with a twist.

delicious kahlua cocktailThis cocktail is different than others because of a little tiny devil – cardamon. It’s scent is warm and aromatic and the taste is sharp so you need only a few to add this unique flavor.

Shall we?

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas peeled and sliced
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 c. Kahlua liquor
1/4 c. cold heavy cream
1/2 c. cold low-fat milk
4 cardamon seeds crushed (or 1/4 tsp cardamon powder)
unsweetened cocoa powder for garnish
Β ice (enough to make the drink cold)

Preparation:

Combine Kahlua, sugar and bananas in a small sauce pan. Medium heat. Cook while stirring for about 10 min., until syrup starts to develop. Don’t worry about how the bananas look like.

At this time things start to sell AMAZING.

Remove from heat. Let cool for a few minutes. In the meantime combine milk, heavy cream, cardamon and ice in a blender. Slowly add the banana mixture. Blend while breaking the ice turning the mixture into a light shake.

Pour into tall glass goblets, dust with cocoa powder and it’s mmm…enjoy.
