Carolyn’s Chocolate Banana Cream Pudding

by Dr Jo

This recipe complements of Dr. Carolyn Dean

The name says it all! This recipe is probably already out there, but I haven’t found the original chef. It popped into my head when all I had on hand for company was frozen bananas, 100-percent raw chocolate powder (cacao), and coconut milk. And voilà: A dreamy dessert with healthy ingredients was born . . . and quickly eaten.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: None

Yield: 2 servings

 

4 small frozen bananas, cut into rounds

4 ounces full-fat coconut milk

2 tablespoons cacao powder

Strawberries or blueberries, for garnish

 

1. Pulse the bananas, coconut milk, and cacao powder in a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth and creamy.

2. Serve with sliced strawberries and/or blueberries.

 

Tip: Cacao powder is all the rage on the Raw culinary scene, so it’s easy to obtain at health food stores or online at stores like www.vitacost.com.

Per serving: Calories 152; Fat 6.7 g (Saturated 5.7 g); Cholesterol 0 mg; Sodium 5 mg; Carbohydrate 25.4 g (Fiber 3.5 g); Protein 2.2 g; Sugar 12.4 g.
