Chocolate-Banana Ganache with Fruit
This recipe is like two desserts in one: a rich fudge sauce when warm and a decadent chocolate-banana pudding when chilled.
3 medium-size bananas
¾ cup reduced-fat unsweetened coconut milk
¾ cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup maple syrup
¾ tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups strawberries, stemmed and quartered
3 kiwis, peeled, halved crosswise and sliced
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
¼ cup dried unsweetened coconut, optional
- Preheat oven to 350F. Bake whole unpeeled bananas 15 minutes, or until black and soft. Cut tips and squeeze flesh into bowl of food processor.
- Bring coconut milk to a boil in saucepan. Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate chips. Let stand 3 minutes, or until chocolate has melted. Whisk in syrup and vanilla. Purée chocolate mixture with bananas until smooth.
- Divide fruit among 6 bowls, and drizzle with chocolate-banana ganache. Sprinkle with coconut, if desired, and serve.
