Dessert Quesedilla

I am not a big fan of Paula Dean's cooking style, however I am a fan of hers. She just seems like a nice lady.  Recently, I was watching her and her son cooking on the Food Network and they made a dessert quesedilla that looked over the top delicious.

Her's used butter and ice cream- two ingredients that are easy to substitute vegan versions for so I decided to try it.  It was simply amazing! And so easy to make-- this will be something I will make again. Everyone loved it including me, a self proclaimed non dessert eater.

Dessert Quesedilla

2  flour tortillas
2 tbsp Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread
1 banana, sliced
1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips plus a few for sprinkling
3 tbsp brown sugar, firmly packed
1 scoop non dairy Vanilla ice cream (I used So Delicious Vanilla made from coconut milk)

Cover one of the tortillas with the sliced banana, half the brown sugar and the 1/4 cup of chocolate chips.  Top with the other tortilla as you would if making a quesedilla.  In a shallow pan heat the Earth Balance until melted. Add the other half of the brown sugar and stir.  Place the quesedilla in the pan and allow to cook until browned. Carefully flip and allow to brown on the other side.

Remove from the pan, place a scoop of  the non dairy ice cream on top and garnish with the rest of the chocolate chips.  Slice and serve.


  1. This is really creative! The original and the vegan version - I've seen dessert tortillas, but never thought of that one. ^^

  2. I love quesadillas, and you've just taken dessert to a whole new level of yumminess for me! What a creative way to enjoy my favorite coconut milk ice cream. I can't wait to try this! Thank you!!!
