Caribbean Cream - All that's Jas

Caribbean Cream – No Bake Dessert

This creamy no-bake Caribbean dessert is whipped up quickly for an instant summer in a bowl.

I think you’ll agree with me when I say no-bake, simple, few-ingredient desserts are the bomb!

That’s not all.

It’s semi-healthy!

Caribbean Cream – No Bake Dessert

“Wanti wanti can’t get it, getti getti no want it” is Jamaican saying for ‘the grass is always greener on the other side’. I laughed out loud at this one. It’s so catchy I can almost make out a tune, ha!
This heavenly no-bake Caribbean cream dessert is super yummy and, like almost all of my recipes, quick to make. I know, I sound like a broken record.
 
Now, let me prove it to you.
 
While husband did some snow-blowing and shoveling, I made Italian chicken with Kurdish rice pilaf, this Caribbean cream for dessert, and Mexican hot chocolate for him to warm up. How’s that for a round-up of international dishes? All are easy and quick to make. Or maybe my husband took extra time outside. Nah.
 
This dessert is out of this world! We couldn’t stop mmm-ing and we literally licked the bowls. I made it again two days later.
 
Even better:
 
I ran out of the heavy cream and used frozen whipped cream instead.  So creamy!
 

Caribbean Cream

 
Caribbean Cream - All that's Jas
 

Ingredients:
Serves 2

¾ cup coconut yogurt (or pineapple and coconut yogurt)
¾ cup heavy cream (or 1 cup Cool Whip)
1 tablespoon coconut rum, such as Malibu, optional
1 banana
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
Shredded coconut, optional

Directions:

Stir together the yogurt and cream with the rum, if you’re using it, and whisk until slightly thickened.

Slice the banana and then divide the slices between two -1 cup ramekins to form a layer at the bottom of each one. Spoon the thickened yogurt and cream mixture filling the ramekins equally.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar over each ramekin, and then wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours, or until sugar has dissolved. Garnish with shredded coconut if desired.

    Jas, you truly are an international lady. I honestly wouldn’t know where to go to find coconut yogurt. But the rest I can manage. Going to check out your chicken recipe!

      Oh, Mary, maybe I wasn’t clear. It is not yogurt made of coconut, but rather coconut-flavored yogurt. Oops. You can find flavored yogurt in any dairy isle 🙂

    Looks yummy. I wish someone else in my house liked coconut so I could make this & not have to eat it all myself. Lol pinned Thanks for joining us at the Inspiration Spotlight party.

      I wish someone in my house didn’t like coconut so I HAVE to eat it all myself, lol. It only makes two servings and it’s light, so no worries. 😉
