Sunflower Seed Butter Chocolate Pudding/Soft Serve

Share it Please
Banana soft-serve has been all over the blogosphere and I figured I might as well join in the fun. Personally, I'm not a big banana fan, but people have claimed, when combined with a little vanilla, it tastes just like vanilla soft serve.
Not the most photogenic of foods

So today, I got out my food processor, the frozen, bananas, cocoa powder, and sunflower seed butter. It was a snap to make and I was truly glad I did it. I may have added a bit too much liquid, which is why it looks more like pudding than soft serve. But if scaled back the liquid a teeny bit, then I bet it would be just like it!

Creamy, chocolatey, pudding-er- soft serve

I'm definitely going to try this again and make it more like soft serve. The texture was smooth and creamy. The combined flavors were absolutely perfect and rich like regular ice cream. The banana flavor was pretty subtle, but I might add a little more vanilla next time to cover it up better.

I know it's almost winter (or it might already be winter wherever you are), but I really encourage you to make this! You won't be sorry! So get out the food processor and blend away!

1 frozen banana
1-2 T. sunflower seed butter or other nut or seed butter
1 scant T. cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. salt
spalsh of vanilla
1/2-1 T. milk of choice (I used vanilla sweetened almond milk)
sweetener to taste (I only put in a tad bit of honey)

1. Chop the banana into slices and add to food processor with the sunflower seed butter.
2. Pulse until the mixture is thoroughly combined and the banana has turned into pebbles.
3. Add the salt, cocoa powder, vanilla, milk, and sweetener. Blend until the mixture is smooth.
4. Scoop into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings.

I bet these would make great fudgesicles. Oh yeah, I'm gonna have to do that.

  1. Ooo I love the idea of adding sunflower butter! I'm sure the combination with the banana is just great. I'm currently not eating nuts or seeds, so I might try it with coconut butter. Yum!

    1. That sounds fantastic! I never thought about adding coconut butter, but it's a great idea. Thanks for commenting! :)
