No, you’re not hallucinating. What you’re seeing on your screen is completely real and just as incredible as it looks. Introducing… CHURRO BANANA CREAM PIE! And with this showstopping dessert, we declare that the holidays have officially begun! Resting in a buttery churro-flavored pie crust, smooth vanilla custard is mixed with slices of fresh bananas, then topped with homemade whipped cream and crispy cinnamon-sugar churro bites. Garnished with elegant dark chocolate shavings, you might want to consider serving this pie with some tissues, since your recipients will be streaming tears of joy after their first taste. If you like churros and banana cream pie as much as we do, then this dessert is for you! Let the celebrations begin!
For those of you who made it past the unexpected title, welcome! You are in for a treat. One of our favorite restaurants to visit on special occasions is The Stinking Rose. They are famous for menu items like their 40-clove garlic chicken, but since we are both vegetarian, we choose from the array of garlicky pasta selections on the menu. The meal officially begins when the server delivers bagna cauda to the table: a hot iron skillet sizzling with roasted garlic which spreads onto crusty slices of baguette like smooth butter. If you still have room after the main course, you cannot leave without trying their famous garlic ice cream with caramel molé sauce. As odd as it may sound, it is actually quite delicious, and from this eclectic eating experience we have learned to not judge a dessert by its title. While some of you may think that mixing avocado and chocolate is sacrilege, let us assure you it is quite the opposite. In fact, if you didn’t know there was actually avocado in this chocolatey dessert we are sharing today, you would probably never guess. With just eight simple ingredients, this creamy no-bake pudding is here to shock your mind and your mouth.
