Banana "cocktail"

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by twissis

My recipe source is the Turbana Corp. As written, the recipe calls for fruit cocktail ... BUT I like to use fresh fruit (when in season), buy a sml jar of cherries to garnish & only use fruit cocktail as a last resort. This dish works well as part of a brunch menu, luncheon dish or dessert & can be paired w/a cookie or sml serving of pound cake when used as a dessert. Enjoy!

Mmmmm, this was creamy, dreamy, and liquory! We used canned peaches in lieu of fruit cocktail, and mango for papaya (papaya's are very hard to find). This is a really fun drink to make, and fun to spoon out the treats at the bottom. Thanks twissis. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans fruit cocktail (drained, cherries removed & reserved)
  • 5 bananas, sliced
  • 14 cup Grand Marnier (or another orange liqueur)
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 cup papaya (puree in blender)
  • 14 cup fresh cream


  1. Combine drained fruit cocktail + banana slices & set aside.
  2. Use a blender or hand-held whipper/blender tool to combine the remaining ingredients (a smooth sauce is obtained when papaya purée is prepared in a blender).
  3. Spoon fruit/banana mix into 6 cocktail glasses & pour purée sauce over fruit. Garnish w/reserved cherries & mint leaves.
