I am now going to call this bowl of frozen goodness the Mouthgasm because it is that delicious. And you know how sex is good for you? So is this dessert.
I was walking through the San Francisco International Airport on my way home after a long day of traveling when I saw my favorite froyo place that had just opened a store in the United terminal. Ecstatic, I made a beeline for the register only to be told (not very nicely) that they had just closed and the machines were off. I tried to guilt trip her but that chick was not having it so I carried on, defeated. I was so disappointed.
BUT THEN, I remembered that I had frozen banana chunks in my freezer! As soon as I got home, I buzzed the banana with a little yoghurt* and cocoa powder to create an even better chocolatey frozen dessert. The best part: I got to pile on as many strawberries as I damned well pleased–I DO NOT SKIMP ON FRUIT. I also drizzled on a little magic shell just for shits and gigs.
*TIP: After the banana chunks have been in the freezer for a few days, they dry out significantly. The last time I made some Mouthgasm with some long-frozen bananas, I had to fake it because it was all lumpy and not creamy at all. This time, a large scoop of fat-free yoghurt solved that problem–just toss it in the food processor with the banana chunks and it creams them right up.
My recipe: The Mouthgasm
- 1 banana, frozen in 1/2 in slices
- 1+ tbs fat-free yoghurt (depending how long your banana has been frozen, if less than 1 day skip this step)
- 1 tbs cocoa powder
- 4 strawberries
- 1 drizzle Magic Shell
What to do:
- Combine the frozen banana chunks, cocoa powder, and yoghurt (if needed, add more if necessary to reach desired state of creamy-ness) in a small food processor. Do not overblend, you don’t want it to melt.
- Chop the strawberries and pour the Magic Shell on top or whatever toppings your heart desires.
And DONE. 30 seconds to the best frozen bowl of Mouthgasm in all the land. This also makes a great healthy snack on a hot day when all you want is ice cream and a good book. If you use freshly frozen bananas or soy yoghurt, its vegan too!
