Simple Chocolate Sauce

For the past few weeks, I’ve had fleeting thoughts of banana splits. Now this is unsual because;

1. I don’t eat dairy which means I’m not a frequent ice cream consumer.

2. I’ve never really been a banana split-sundae kind of girl. Even as a kid, I mostly just wanted the ice cream and not all the toppings (aka distractions).

Well, those banana split thoughts were persistent so after a weekend of fun with the In-Laws and some ice cream making, I had most of the items necessary for my banana split fix. Except one. The Chocolate Fudge! Lucky me, I had just purchased some AMAZING Valrhona cocoa powder (it’s worth it) and I had some dates left over from my ice cream making. Here’s the final result!

I impressed myself.

Simple Chocolate Sauce

6 medjool dates (fresh and gooey)
2 Tbsp 100% cocoa powder
1/4 c. almond milk
salt

  1. I used and immersion blender and if you use a vitamix or regular blender, you might have to double the recipe.
  2. Place all ingredients in the blender (or container for immersion). Blend until smooth adding more milk to get desired consistency.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.

Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."

To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
