This layered cream-like dessert is prepared using some of my favorites (read healthier) ingredients: bananas, berries, avocado, coconut sugar, walnuts and homemade chocolate frosting. It’s super tasty and so nourishing!

Ingredients

Layer A - Banana and Berries Nice Cream

  • 1.5 banana (peeled, sliced)
  • 4 big tbsp frozen cranberries
  • 4 big tbsp frozen blackberries
  • 4 big tbsp frozen blueberries
  • 1 medium avocado (skin and seed removed)
  • a bit of water (not too much, just enough to blend your ingredients)

Layer B- Chocolate Frosting

  • 100 g lightly salted butter (zero-salt also works)
  • 80 g dark chocolate (80% dark or more)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (liquid, or ½ tsp vanilla powder)
  • 2 tsp coconut sugar (optional)

Layer C- Fresh Berries

  • 1 cup frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries

Other Ingredients

  • ½ cup walnuts

Instructions

Layer A

  • This layer is made of a simple and delicious nice cream.
  • Add all the ingredients for this layer into a blender and blend until you obtain a creamy consistency.
  • If needed, add just a bit of water and continue to mix until smooth.

Layer B

  • This layer is made of delicious and creamy chocolate frosting.
  • In a double boiler melt chocolate together with coconut sugar and vanilla extract.
  • When everything has combined, remove from the double boiler and set aside to cool down until it reaches room temperature.
  • In the meantime, use a whisk to cream the butter.
  • Once the butter is soft enough, add the chocolate cream (remember, at room temperature) and mix until all of it has been incorporated into the creamed butter.
  • You’ll know it’s done when your frosting turns a dark brown color and a creamy consistency.
  • Place in the fridge and remove 10 minutes before using.

Layer C

  • Nothing to do here - This layer is simply made of a mix of berries.

Putting it all together

  • Prepare your dessert by adding one layer on top of another layer. This is a suggestion, you can put the layers in any order you like. With this in mind, here’s how I did it:
  • Layer C - Add a few tbsp of frozen berries at the bottom of the jar.
  • Layer B - Add a thin layer of chocolate frosting.
  • Layer A - Add as much nice cream as you like but leave a bit of room on the top for the walnuts and the 2nd layer of chocolate frosting.
  • Walnuts Layer - Add a few tbsp and let them sink in the nice cream for 20-30 seconds before adding the next layer.
  • Layer B - Finish by adding the 2nd layer of chocolate frosting, this time make it look nice. Enjoy!

Notes

This one of a kind dessert is made of a few different layers that could also be enjoyed as unique treats by themselves. The key word here is creativity, I invite you to be creative with your dessert: make it different every time, change the quantities or the order of the ingredients, use new ingredients that you may like.
Don’t worry if your final piece won’t look the same as mine, this dessert will taste wonderful regardless and that should always be more important than how it looks. Enjoy!
If possible, use raw butter from pastured cows. This kind of butter comes with added health benefits, namely vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and probiotics.
I always use dark chocolate made with only a few ingredients: cacao mass, cacao butter and a sweetener (coconut sugar or raw sugar).
