Caramelized Plantains

Updated: Dec 23, 2020

Caramelized Plantains is a typical dish in Colombia and other Caribbean regions. This delicious and traditional dish is very easy to make and even though it is sweet, it is usually served as a side dish! Top these sweet plantains with a scoop of dairy-free ice cream and call it dessert!


2 ripe plantains (end cut and peeled)

1/3 cup brown coconut sugar @bigtreefarmsbali

2 cinnamon sticks

1 tbsp ghee @vitalfarms

1 tsp vanilla

1 scoop @so_delicious cashew milk ice cream (I used Salted Caramel Cluster)


Cut the plantains in quarters.

In a pot, place the cut plantains and add water until it covers the plantains.

Add sugar and cinnamon sticks and cook over low to medium heat until the sauce thickens, about 25-30min.

Add ghee and vanilla and cook for a couple of minutes.

Serve hot and top with a scoop of ice cream.
