Raw cacao, date and banana pudding

Banana and chocolate is a combo that never fails. Full of natural goodness and a great little treat after dinner, this tasty, simple pudding is rich in immune boosting antioxidants and sleep-enhancing potassium.



Small 12cm by 8cm baking tray


200g dates, pitted

60g ground almonds

100g hazelnuts

2 tbsp. cacao powder

60g almonds, finely chopped

2 bananas

Pinch Malden salt


To make:

Serves 4

Soak the dates in hot water for 5 minutes, then drain.

Place the dates, ground almonds, nuts and cacao powder in a blender and blitz for 2 minutes until smooth. Place this mixture in a mixing bowl and add the chopped almonds. Mix well and place half of the mixture in a small serving dish.

Slice the bananas and place a layer of sliced banana on top of the chocolate and then add the second half of the mixture. Using a spoon, flatten the mixture out before adding the second layer of banana. Place this in the fridge for 2 hours to set. Serve each scoop with a tiny pinch of Malden salt.
