Guilt Free Hot Fudge Sundae
This guilt free hot fudge sundae is such a treat and you don’t feel guilty because you know it is made with whole foods, not a bunch of chemical laden food like substances.
I always have a bag of frozen banana pieces in a bag in the freezer. Whenever I have some bananas that are looking a little too ripe to eat, I just peel them cut them into slices and throw them into my banana bag.
The hot fudge sauce is so easy. You will want to add a little water at a time to create the right thickness. Left over hot fudge sauce makes a delicious spread on toast, think of it as a healthy nutella spread.
Top with your sundae with a few crushed nuts. Pure yum!
Healthy Chocolate Fudge Sauce
- 1/3 cup pitted dates (i.e. measured once pitted)
- 1/2 cup almond or cashew milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
Put dates and almond milk into a blender, blend together until smooth.
Pour into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, continue to cook whilst stirring over a low flame for 5-10 minutes, until thickened.
Remove from the heat, stir in the cocoa powder until melted and incorporated.
Transfer to a sterilized glass jar. Serve warm, refrigerate and eat cold, or re-warm.
Banana Ice Cream Recipe
- 1 Banana per person (the more ripe it is, the sweeter your ice cream will be)
- A splash or two of almond, cashew or soy milk.
Remove the peels from the bananas and slice them up.
Put the banana slices into plastic bag and place it in your freezer.
Once the bananas are frozen all the way through, take them out to thaw slightly.
Put the frozen bananas into a strong blender (or even a food processor should work)
Your imagination is the limit with this healthy ice cream recipe. You can try the same thing with different fruits like berries or mangoes. If you like strawberry banana smoothies, try mixing frozen strawberries and frozen bananas to make an ice cream. Or if you like peanut butter, try mixing some peanut butter into the banana ice cream.
