Sweet sweet Friday: Banana Parfait

Last week, when I was moaning about my fruitless search for a banana and chocolate semi-freddo recipe, lovely Peggy of Fake It 'Til You Make It fame reminded me of the world's easiest (and best?) dessert. It's been hideously humid and sticky here (sorry, northern hemisphere readers) and this is just heavenly.


Banana Parfait
Gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free, fat-free, child-friendly, budget-friendly - there is a lot to love about this delectable dessert even before you taste it. You could always shave over some dark chocolate (or pour over some chocolate sauce (melt equal quantities of dark chocolate and cream), but it's hard to beat as it is.

Are overripe bananas cluttering up your fruit bowl? Throw them in the freezer - you can peel them and wrap them in clingfilm if you like, but I just put them in, skin and all.
When you want to eat, take the bananas out (allow one per person) and peel off the skins with a sharp knife. Cut them into chunks and throw them in your food processor. Blitz until they have formed a smooth, icy puree (this makes a hell of a racket, but it's worth it). Eat immediately. Chill out.

Do you have an end of the week sweet treat? Add a link to it here to spread the sweetness of Fridays... Pin It

  4. This is perfect for when I buy bananas in the midst of my health kick, then end up putting them in the bin cos they've rotted away! Feel free to take some of the icy, snowy weather in Glasgow! :)

Hello - thanks for stopping by. If this was real life I'd make you a cup of tea and open the biscuit tin, but in lieu of those things, let's have a chat anyway...
