Chocolate Banana Coconut Frozen Heaven
On Friday my cousin turned 34 and wanted to go out somewhere. She decided on a jazz club, Cliff Bells, but wasn’t sure if she wanted to stay there all night. This posed an issue for yours truly. Since my diet, my feet are no longer swollen little sausages and I can wear all the lovely shoes I used to. So when faced with an evening of uncertain destinations one must be prepared for anything. So instead of my gold slingbacks I went with my red Christian Siriano wedges. Although they are ridiculously high, wedges are the most comfortable when walking distance is in doubt. The problem comes in with my legs and feet. Earlier in the week my foot was threatening a charlie horse from switching shoes too much. I really haven’t worn much of anything sturdier than a flip flop all summer. Despite my warning signs I wore the heck out of those shoes. We did minimal walking but the restaurant was so cold that my muscles started locking up. I made it through the night without incident but early the next day I was woken up by a cramp in my left calf and one in my right shin, at the same time. It was
charmingexcruciating. I could feel the calf spasming and it still hurts right now. So my diet support person said I should have a banana and get some potassium. So below is the recipe for chocolate banana coconut heaven.
1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage (I used So Delicious, but I suppose you could use the canned stuff too)
1 tbsp unsweetened coco powder
Stevia to taste
Measure out the coconut milk. Chop the banana and put it in the coconut milk. Add in the coco powder and the stevia. Using an immersion blender (or your regular blender) blend until smooth and completely mixed. Taste, adjust sweetener keeping in mind it gets sweeter when it’s frozen. Pour into a freezable container, popsicle mold or plastic baggie and freeze. I split it into 2 large servings when I made it. The first I blended w/ ice, the second I froze. I prefer it frozen.
