Shipping their pre-packed ice creams to stores across the U.S., Coolhaus is a woman-owned company headquartered in California that sells frozen treats out of a food truck locally and two Southern California-based storefronts in Pasadena and Culver City, Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts; it’s made with caramelized bananas and a sauce comprised butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and sometimes banana liqueur. The New Orleans-born dessert is typically set on fire tableside (flambé) and served with vanilla ice cream if you’ve ordered it at a restaurant. Pecans and walnuts are popular toppings for the dessert as well.
The description for Coolhaus Bananas Foster Ice Cream lists the following flavors:
- Banana ice cream
- Dulce de leche swirl
The banana ice cream base is lightly sweetened and pairs nicely with the noticeably thicker ripple of dulce de leche swirl that runs throughout. The rum flavor does not stand out to me. I also would have liked to have some type of nuts in it, but you can easily add them yourself as a topping, if you prefer. Overall, I really like this ice cream flavor, and look forward to trying other flavors within the Coolhaus line.
