Strawberries Foster

Strawberries Foster will make you forget all about Bananas Foster! Delicious, easy, and beautiful.

If you love strawberries, you will adore Strawberries Foster! Serve it over pound cake or ice cream.

I’m always on the hunt for super easy DELICIOUS desserts. Ones you can whip up in minutes and enjoy over and over again.

When we go out to eat, if Bananas Foster is on the menu, you better believe I’m ordering it. That being said, I’ve never made it at home! My husband isn’t a huge fan of bananas, so I’ve just never tried.

Strawberries on the other hand, he can’t get enough. So I thought why not take everything I love from Bananas Foster and simply swap out the bananas for strawberries!

Strawberries Foster is a fun twist on the classic bananas foster


Strawberries Foster was born and MAN is it delicious! Thrown together in minutes and sure to please. Simple flavors coming together to create the perfect sweet treat.

Since I was just making this at home, I didn’t go as far as lighting the mixture on fire and putting on a show, but you totally could! Bring the fancy restaurant right to your home kitchen. How fun is that!

This recipe is a topper for vanilla ice cream or even Roasted Berry Ice Cream, or is equally delicious on its own. It’s addicting, let me tell you!

I just love how elegant this dessert is while still being simple. Easy recipes are always the best, and this is as easy as it comes.

With only a few ingredients, the strawberries are really able to shine. So much flavor!!

Start by heating together the butter, dark brown sugar and rum in a skillet. This will make the yummy syrup for the Strawberries Foster!

Since the rum adds a good bit of flavor, make sure you choose a good quality rum. It’ll make a difference in the final dish.

Once the syrup comes together, add the halved strawberries. Stir them to make sure they are all coated with the syrup and cook for just a couple of minutes until they are warmed through.

Strawberries Foster is the perfect pair for vanilla ice cream, but is just as delicious over pound cake!

That’s it! Spoon the Strawberries Foster over ice cream or even over angel food cake or cream cheese pound cake.

If you have a strawberry lover in your house, this Strawberries Foster is for you! Super fun, super easy, and super delicious. Just as any go-to dessert recipe should be. Enjoy!

Strawberries Foster is the ideal dessert for any strawberry lover!
