Blended Frozen Banana with Warm Raw Chocolate Sauce & Crushed Walnuts

Another hangover inspired recipe!   We can’t all be 100% clean living all the time!  I have heard of blending frozen banana to make ‘ice cream’ a lot over the years but never got around to trying it out myself.  Feeling a bit ‘delicate’ today after last night’s festivities -farewell drinks for my brother as he is heading off next week to travel around Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.  I am painfully envious but that is another story!  Having had more than enough drinks last night and feeling rough, I decided this would be the perfect comfort food!  Coincidentally bananas are also a great hangover food due to their high levels of potassium, which is depleted in the body by alcohol intake.   It’s a win-win situation!  I used three bananas for a very large portion!  A single scoop serving would probably be about 1 banana, but it may be harder to blend in smaller quantities.

Place chopped frozen bananas and 1 tsp vanilla essence in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Depending on the strength of your mixer it may take a few minutes.  Keep scraping down the sides.  It may seem like it is never going to come together, but don’t be tempted to add liquid.  All of a sudden it will eventually turn from weird banana breadcrumbs to creamy, beautiful ‘ice cream’.

To make the sauce, grate about 8 grams of cacao butter and melt over a very low heat.  Add 1 tbsp of cacao powder and 1 tbsp of agave syrup and mix in to a warm sauce.   You can add a small ammount of liquid if you want to alter the consistency.  Layer the sauce with the frozen banana and chopped walnuts, and feel your hangover disappear (For five minutes!).

  1. I need to try this Rowena yuuum sounds and looks delicious :-) Do you buy ingredients online? The ones not so readily available in normal shops? Like cacoa for instance!! X

    • You can buy them online, might work out a bit cheaper maybe sometimes, but I get mine in Nourish health shop in town, I’m sure you’d find the equivalent over there very easily in most health food shops! x
