Banana and coffee liqueur desserts

  • 4
Banana and coffee liqueur desserts

The dessert is slightly indulgent - bananas macerated with coffee and coffee liqueur and topped with creamy yoghurt. Yet it's simple, quick and moreish. Ideal to serve with a short black to finish the meal.


  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • ¼ cup each coffee liqueur, strong cold coffee and sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • ½ cup creme fraiche or cream, whipped
  • 1½ cups Greek-style yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • sugar to taste


  1. Slice the bananas and toss with the coffee liqueur, coffee, sugar and vanilla essence.
  2. Mix the creme fraiche or whipped cream with the yoghurt and 2 tablespoons extra coffee liqueur or Bailey's. Sweeten to taste with sugar.
  3. Either divide the bananas and syrup among 4 serving glasses and top with the yoghurt mix or place yoghurt in first and top with the bananas and syrup. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Cooks Tips

- If wished, divide the yoghurt mix into two and add a splash of Kahlua to one portions. Bailey's to the other. Serve in 2 layers.
