A simple dessert or a luxurious breakfast.
1/4 cup warm water
2-3 large soft dates, pitted and chopped
1T cocoa powder (I used a fair trade, Dutch-process brand)
4t chopped walnuts, divided
1/4t coarse sea salt (or to taste)
2 large frozen bananas (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4t vanilla extract
Optional: 1t maca powder
Mix the chopped dates with the cocoa, sea salt and warm water thoroughly.
Let stand about 5 minutes, add 2t walnuts, and puree until smooth.
If the mixture is too thick, add a little water; if too thin, add another date.
Puree the banana with the vanilla until smooth.
If using the maca, puree it with the banana.
Spoon out the banana to a dish garnish with the fudge and remaining 2t walnuts and serve.
