Behold, my friends, for I bring you a way to satisfy
my your chocolate and sweet tooth cravings sans guilt.
"Hah!", you scoff, "I've heard claims of this before and it ends up either costing a fortune or tasting like cardboard".
How is it different? Well firstly, it tastes AWESOME. On top of that it's got zero added sugar, very little fat, and consists almost entirely of bananas. How is this possible? The science of it boggles my mind, but what I do know is that once you whip those frozen bananas up in your blender, they turn gloriously creamy and delicious and mousse-y and ice-creamy. The perfect base to transform into a variety of delicious (good-for-you) flavours.
Oh, and did I mention it's all-natural and super healthy? NOM to the max!
Guilt-Free Chocolate MousseAdapted from Cook (almost) Anything At Least Once
Makes 2 generous servings
3 bananas2 tbsp coconut milk2 tbsp best quality cocoa powder (unsweetened)coloured slivered almonds, to garnish (optional)
1. Peel bananas and cut into chunks. Arrange in a ziplock bag in a single layer and freeze until solid.2. In a food processor, blend bananas, coconut milk until whipped and creamy looking. Add cocoa powder, mixing to incorporate the cocoa evenly into the banana mixture.3. Serve, garnished with slivered almonds.
Notes: You can also serve this as a ice-cream, by returning the mixture to the freezer to firm up again after incorporating the cocoa powder. Alternatively, leave out the cocao powder and serve as a delicious alternative to vanilla ice-cream. Or get creative and add your own flavours.
