Ingredients

  • 4 medium bananas, ripe
  • 144 grams allulose sweetener (about 3/4 cup)
  • 16 ounces white rum
  • 4 ounces water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

  • Mash bananas in a bowl. Add to a large jar, then cover with rum, shake and stir to combine. Put the lid on and put away in a cool, dark place for a minimum of 3 days, (preferably 7 days).
  • When time is up, strain bananas away from the rum mixture, discarding banana. You may need to use cheesecloth to avoid getting fruit sediment in the mixture.
  • In a sauce pan, make your simple syrup by heating water to a boil, removing from the heat, then stirring in allulose. Allow to cool for a bit, then add in optional vanilla extract and stir.
  • Add simple syrup mixture to banana rum mixture, and shake to combine. Allow the flavors to meld for a day or so for best results. Store in a glass container in a cool dark place for up to 1 year! Add to various cocktails.

Notes

  • Allulose is about 70% as sweet as sugar, so keep this in mind if you plan to use something else in its place. 
  • If you'd like a warm and spiced flavor to this liqueur, feel free to use spiced rum instead. Just keep an eye out for added sugar content if this is a concern. 
  • Vanilla extract is optional. 
  • Add a splash of banana extract to really ramp up the banana flavor of the liqueur.
