Choc Banana ‘mess’

This healthy dessert is really simple, actually there’s nothing to this and that’s why I LOVE IT. We’re combining banana and chocolate to create what can only be described as a Choc Banana ‘mess”, for obvious reasons… it’s a pile of yum.


I guess you could say this is my take on a banana split but with healthier options to fuel and energise, rather than spike your blood sugar.

You could caramelise the banana in a pan, around 5 minutes either side with a sprinkle of coconut sugar.

  • 2 squares chocolate – I use 90% dark chocolate
  • 3 tbsp yoghurt of choice – I use full fat natural or coconut
  • Optional – for a double choc vibe: 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • Optional – for extra sweetness: 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 banana
  • Nut butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt


  • In a small pot, gently melt your chocolate on the lowest heat.
  • For this, I don’t even both getting out the double boiler. Just keep it on the lowest heat possible and all will be OK.
  • If you don’t want to melt the chocolate, chop it into chunks or fine shards and skip this step.
  • Scoop yoghurt onto a small plate or bowl.
  • Mix through cacao and maple syrup if using.
  • Slice banana in half lengthways and scatter on top of yoghurt.
  • Dollop small amount of nut butter around banana and yoghurt. Around 1 tablespoon is a nice amount.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and a touch of salt.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate over the top.
