I just concocted this and it tastes amazing - I seem to say that for all my recipes, but this one was truly super-yummy!
1/3 - 1/2 frozen banana
1 block of 100% chocolate - I used Dagoba and the block size is big, you can use more or less depending on the brand you use and how chocolate-ey you want
2 -3 T cream
Nuke the cream and chocolate in the microwave* for 15 seconds, just enough to heat the cream. Remove and whisk with a spoon till chocolate melts to form a thickish ganache. Grate** the frozen banana into this ganache till it resembles the consistency of ice-cream or pudding. Enjoy this instantly-gratifying dessert w/o guilt.
* This can be done over a double-boiler too.
** If you're making a bigger quantity, you can blend it in a blender

i just made a yummy chocolate protein milkshake that tastes like a dessert! this banana ice cream looks yummy maba!
-1tbsp raw cocoa

Misathemeb, I'll have to try the above recipe w/ avocado and stevia, will make for a creamier pudding.
Ooh that does sound delicious I'll have to try it with coconut milk after the holidays! I'll probably use my food processor though...because I love to use it for anything I can mostly! The avocado would probably be a great addition to the banana ice cream too, especially if I don't use any cream. It's a good thing I'm not hungry at all right now! And that I have no bananas :P
