{Recipe} Bananas with Fudgey Chocolate Sauce


I don’t like to pretend that frozen bananas will ever taste the same as ice cream, and this sauce also works deliciously decadently over ice cream. However for those who don’t want a lot of dairy I like the chunky muddle of frozen bananas and this warm moreish sauce.

Serves 2

Total Time 30 minutes


  • 4 bananas
  • 50grams dates, pitted and chopped
  • 125ml almond milk (or regular milk)
  • 100grams dark chocolate, chopped
  • hazelnuts to serve


  • In advance, peel and chop the bananas placing the pieces into the freezer. Minimum for 2 hours or store some in the freezer as needed.
  • To make the sauce place the dates and milk into a food processor and blend together until smooth.
  • Pour the mix into a saucepan and add the chocolate melting everything together. Stir regularly until the chocolate is thoroughly melted for 4 -6 minutes but be careful that it doesn’t solidify. If this happens whisk in a little more milk.
  • Serve warm ontop of your bananas and top with chopped hazelnuts.
