Bananas foster is one of my favorite flavors of all time. Back in my barista/college days and before I knew much about nutrition, I used to make myself a bananas foster americano with 3 pumps of butter caramel sauce and then 3 pumps of bananas foster syrup. The flavor was the best! It’s always my goal to make my favorite treats or comfort meals more nutritious. So here’s my go at this delicious treat that originated in Louisiana.

Might I add, you will have extras of this caramel sauce and you can put it onto ANYTHING. I mean, you might find your partner or child or roommate bathing in it, in the middle of the night. It’s that good!

This is the perfect, quick and easy treat to have on hand all summer long. Enjoy!

    It looks more than delicious; however how can this be AIP if AIP involves low-glycemic fruits and avoiding sugar?
    I would really like an answer – I’m not just trying to be fussy.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hi Carol! AIP is not a sugar-free protocol. There is a time and place for enjoying a treat, and this is why we post recipes for them occasionally.

    Thank you for the recipe, looks delicious! I read on another website that there were some concerns about vanilla (at least in certain forms) following an AIP diet. Very happy if you could give your view on that. Thanks

    I just started on my AIP diet as I have several conditions that I am hoping to correct. My question is the Cacao nibs in this recipe. I found this statement on the internet and wanted to clarify if it was correct. “From an AIP perspective, cacao is avoided because because it is a seeds, which are avoided on this gut healing protocol because they contain phytic acid and digestive enzyme inhibitors.” We are all trying to get this right and heal yourselves. Thank you.

    • Mickey Trescott says

      Hey Jenny! Thanks for catching that – you are right cacao nibs are not AIP. That got missed when the recipe was adapted from Kelsey’s original and we’ve edited above.
