Thanksgiving Ice Cream Parfait

Hi! Here is the thanksgiving dessert we made the other day that I told you about!

Doesn’t it looks gorgeous?!


It’s a layered dessert of persimmon pudding, banana ice cream and delicious and juicy raspberries. It’s sooo simple, anyone can make this. And guess how many ingredients you need?

We made some for my mom and dad, and they both loved this. The combination of banana and persimmon is soo perfect, and the warming spices give it that cosy holiday feel. The flavour and texture contrast of the banana layer and persimmon layer is my favourite. Persimmons make an almost jelly like texture, and that’s awesome with the creamy thick ice cream/soft serve banana layer.


You only need 7 simple ingredients. IMG_3117 - Version 2

Banana Persimmon Dessert
Serves 4

Ice Cream Layer:

3 frozen bananas
2 fresh bananas
1/2 tsp vanilla

Persimmon Pudding Layer:

3 super ripe and gooey persimmons
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 cups frozen raspberries, thawed (or fresh, if available!)

Start by making your persimmon pudding by blending the persimmon and the spices in your blender until fairly smooth. Or, if they are SUPER ripe, you can simply mash them with a fork or a magic bullet.

The banana layer is simply a banana ice cream, so you just throw your bananas in a blender or food processor and watch that magic happen!

Now, select your most beautiful glasses and start layering! Put ice cream in the bottom and persimmon pudding next, making as many layers as you wish. Now decorate with yummy, juicy raspberries and serve!
