Organic Dessert Recipe #1 – Banana and Dark Chocolate (49p/Portion)
Let’s celebrate! I am sharing my first organic dessert/snack recipe with y’all. I intend for this recipe to be as helpful as possible and to also provide a few helpful tips along the way. Rightioli then.. let’s start!
- Serves 1 (not to be shared under any circumstances)
- Prep Time: 5 mins
- I love this quick dessert/snack. Great for those of us with a sweet tooth (myself included). It has the sweetness of milk chocolate without the milk. Perfect for those of you who want to avoid milk for whatever reason but still crave milk chocolate. This my friends, can satisfy your need for a sugary taste.. but with natural sugars from banana. Whoop whoop.
Ingredients (Cost 49p Per Portion):
- 1 Organic Ripened (Freckled) Banana– around 19p (£1.19 for 6 Bananas from Aldi/Lidl)
- 6 Squares / 20g of Green & Black’s Organic 70% or 85% Dark Chocolate – around 30p (£1.50 for a 100g bar from Asda/Tesco, 2 for £3 when on offer)
- Heat proof Plate
- (A Craving for Chocolate)
- Get all of the ingredients out on the counter.
- Put some water in a pan and boil.
- Shortly after place a big enough plate over the pan.
- Now place the chocolate onto the center of the plate.
- It should start to melt. Using a spoon, press down on the chocolate squares to encourage them to melt faster.
- Keep an eye on the chocolate, we want it to melt slowly, so we can ensure we don’t burn it. Once it is all melted, turn off the heat.
- With a towel or similar, to protect yourself from the hot plate, take the plate off of the pan and onto the counter.
- Unpeel the banana and place the fruit on top of the melted chocolate. You can chop the banana if you wish. You may also like to heat it slightly in the microwave for a few seconds so it is a similar temperature to the melted chocolate. I personally liked the contrast in temperature of the warm melted chocolate and slightly cooler banana.
- Now get out your fork or spoon and enjoy!
So there you go, my first organic recipe for a sweet dessert or snack, made of completely organic ingredients. Hopefully I have managed to show you it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to eat delicious organic food everyday and not just as a one-off.
