This delicious dessert couldn't be any easier. Just blend together bananas, raspberries, dates and some cocoa powder.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List


4 large ripe bananas, frozen
10 ounces frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons natural (non-alkalized) cocoa powder
4 regular dates or 2 Medjool dates, pitted


Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until creamy. Add a few tablespoons of non-dairy milk or coconut water if needed to facilitate blending. Refreeze briefly (3-5 minutes)

Note: Tastes great topped with Pecan Cream: blend 2/3 cup pecans, 1/2 cup soy, hemp or almond milk, and 1/2 cup pitted dates in a high-powered blender.

I added 1/2 cup or so of almond milk because it was too dry to mix. Maybe my bananas were extra frozen or my blender is wimpy. But still tasted good.

We love this. We prefer strawberries to raspberries. I take the frozen stuff out of the freezer when we sit down to dinner. At dessert time, they are still frozen, but blend perfectly with out having to add anything. Leftovers stay scoop-able in the freezer.

I usually make half the recipe and have only one of the bananas frozen. If it still won't mix well, I add half a clementine. I also add cinnamon and vanilla.

Delicious! I'd run out of dates so used raisins. The couple of bits of raisin that had got stuck under the blade were chewy and delicious so next time I think I'll use dates to sweeten and also put through some raisins at the end so they stay chunky.
