- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 ripe banana
- 4 pitted dates
- 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- A drop of vanilla extract (optional)
- 400ml milk (any kind)
1. Whizz the cocoa powder, peeled banana, pitted dates, peanut butter, cinnamon and vanilla (if using) in blender or food processor till smooth. Gradually trickle in the milk, till it is frothy, creamy and smooth. Gently simmer in a saucepan till warmed through. Whisk as you warm to give extra light-and frothiness.
2. No blender? Just mush and chop everything on a large cutting board to form a smooth paste. Scrape into a saucepan. Whisk in the milk. Gently warm through. Strain through a sieve. As you’ll be straining some of the fruit you might need to add a little honey or sugar to sweeten it further.
