We needed dessert. Urgently. I knew had frozen bananas and some fancy ass dark chocolate, so I went searching for a quick and amazing recipe: this one from Oh She Glows. This isn’t exactly low fat, but at least it contains fruit!!
Set a small saucepan on the lowest heat setting on your stove and add in
100g of really good quality dark chocolate (I used Green and Black’s 85%)
6 tbsp of coconut cream (keep your coconut milk cans in the fridge: when you open one, you can easily scrap off the cream at the top)
1 tbsp coconut oil (I used refined this time, might try unrefined next)
2 tbsp maple syrup (you don’t want the sauce too sweet, added sugar depends on how dark your chocolate is, but the banana soft serve is really sweet itself)
3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
whisk till completely melted, blended and smooth. Set aside.
Into your food processor goes
2-4 frozen bananas (I pre-slice my bananas, store them in ziploc bags, and freeze)
2-4 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
Blend till smooth. This does take a while so be patient – at least several minutes before you get an ice cream-like consistency. It’ll appear grainy at first, almost crumbly, but you just gotta keep blending.
Serve big heaping spoonfuls of the banana soft serve in bowls, with generous lashings of chocolate sauce and a few pecans on top.
