  • Serves 8-10.

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 very ripe plantain (much more than the one pictured above) 
  • 1/2 c raw cacao (My favorite is David Wolfe's ORGANIC RAW 100% ARRIBA CRIOLLO CACAO POWDER, which you can sometimes find on sale for $5! Cocoa powder is fine, too. ) 
  • 1/4 c coconut oil (Not into coconut? Try ghee, grass-fed butter, applesauce or avocado.) 
  • 1 c milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond.) 
  • 1 egg (can substitute 1/4 c applesauce or make a chia/flax egg) 
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla

  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • 3-4 tbsp of local honey or pure maple syrup (optional)
