Sugar-free chocolate spread!

Posted on

So the question is, what do you put on scones when butter, dairy-free spread, jam, honey and peanut butter aren’t options?

….Home made chocolate spread!  What a revelation, and what a simple recipe.

All you need to do is blend up the following:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • a scant 1/2 tablespoon of a mild tasting oil (I used sunflower oil)

It seemed to keep fine in the fridge for 3 days at which point it was all gone so I don’t know if it would keep any longer!  I can’t eat bananas so my husband is the official ‘taster’ of anything I make containing bananas, and he says that it tasted great but quite banana-y.  The girls claim it tastes of chocolate, not bananas.  I’ll leave the final verdict up to you….let me know what you think!

    This is such a good idea, thank you so much for posting!!! The kids can even make it themselves too. Not sure if you can have coconut cream (?) but one could also freeze the banana, add the cocoa and some cold coconut cream and have ice-cream.

    • Glad you like the idea! We can’t do coconut cream but we’ve made ice-cream with frozen bananas and cocoa before and it went down very well! I’m sure the coconut would add a lovely texture. I’ve heard of someone making cookies using mashed banana and dessicated coconut before. It’s amazing what you can do with just 2-3 ingredients. Thanks for commenting 🙂
