Banoffee Pudding

This pudding is my healthy twist on the traditional Banoffe Pudding. It is easy to make but seriously good too! If you need cheering up or you need to cheer someone else up, then I absolutely suggest that you make this as there is no way a smile won’t appear after just one bite!

The addition of the pecans is great for the texture of this dessert but they also pack a powerful punch of nutrition! These nuts, which are native to North America and Mexico, contain a range of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This impressive selection of health boosting compounds contribute to cardiovascular and digestive health as well as aiding in weight loss and reducing the risk of breast cancer. When eaten regularly pecans also provide a range of anti-inflammatory benefits and work to lower blood pressure.

To make enough for two servings you will need the following ingredients:

1 large ripe banana
1/2 an avocado
2 Tbsp. of raw cacao powder
8 pitted dates
2 ice cubes
2 Tbsp of cashew butter
400ml of coconut milk
60g of pecans, save a few to use to garnish

As I said, making this dish is incredibly easy! To get started all you need to do is blitz all of the ingredients together in your blender or food processor until they are smooth. You can then spoon this mixture into two separate bowls before you place these bowls in the freezer for just ten minutes. Once the ten minutes are up, remove the bowls from the freezer and garnish with the remaining pecans which you can chop into smaller pieces if you prefer!

This dish is then ready to serve and should have taken less than 20 minutes from preparation until you serve!
