Is it....dessert time?

A smooth and silky base of cashew cream whipped up with cocoa powder and banana to create a thick, rich custard. Surprisingly the banana flavour was still quite subtle (in my opinion) and the rich chocolateyness really took centre stage. I added some extra chunks of chopped banana, a sprinkling of coconut chips and a dusting of nutmeg to top it all off.

This dessert can be made with regular cashews ground down and blended but the super smoothness is achieved so much more easily and with less effort with cashew butter.

It was deliciously simple but oh so deliciously good!
