A unique dessert soup with a tropical flavor. I serve with pound cake or with a chocolate tart.

i went on my first cruise and had cold banana soup. i fell in love with it and when i found this recipe it was close and yummy as is. I used imitation rum since i was serving it to the kids and i don't drink so i didn't have rum on hand. I also added a couple dashes of all spice and nutmeg that was the flavor that was missing from what i tasted on the cruise and it turned out great!!!! Read More

I made this soup for a family gathering and got mixed reviews -"It's a drink it's a smoothie". Once I tried it I agreed. Suggestions from the crew included using a liquer versus the rum. I would like to try it using Amaretto. Read More
