Mocha frozen dessert sweetened with stevia

Fresh espresso and cocoa make this dessert (or breakfast) rich and flavourful Although quite sweet, stevia can still be an acquired taste and hard to find. Sweeten instead with 2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar if you prefer, or 3 tablespoons coconut sugar, and so on.


3 medium frozen bananas (about 2 cups)
1 shot espresso (short)
2T cacao powder (I use a fair-trade, Dutch-processed brand)
A pinch of sea salt
Stevia to taste

Optional: 1t maca powder


Make the espresso, mix it with the stevia and flash chill in the freezer for a minute. It should be fairly sweet (so that it sweetens the banana and cocoa sufficiently). A scant teaspoon of powdered or several drops of liquid stevia should be sufficient. When the espresso has cooled, puree everything together until smooth. Sweeten to taste and serve.
