This healthy dessert is from Dr. Andrew Weil’s Kitchen. It is very quick & easy to make and for all you chocoholics, gelato, ice-cream lovers (me included!), this is the perfect healthy alternative-no dairy, no refined sugars but you’d never know it from the taste. Very rich, smooth and creamy it is best when just frozen but can be kept in the freezer for a couple of weeks. Also bananas are rich in potassium and magnesium.
4 ripe bananas
2 tablespoons pur unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
Peel bananas and place in a blender along with the cocoa powder. Add the vanilla and maple syrup. Blend til very smooth. Pour into individual custard cups or small bowls and freeze til just frozen.
