Healthier 15 Minute Sundaes

I realize that most sundaes take approximately three minutes to assemble, so this recipe's main selling point is that it will clog ones' arteries slightly less than a sundae made with all store-bought components: The fats are healthy saturated type, the sugar can be modified (white granulated, honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, or even stevia can all be easily accepted by the recipe).   Most importantly, the flavors compliment each other very well.  I was very happy after eating this.


1.5 cup / 355mL whipping cream
3T / 45mL brewed coffee no sugar
1.5T / 25mL vanilla
5T / 70g coconut oil, solid
5.5T / 30g cacao powder
1/3 cup+ 3T / 90g+40g sugar (separated)
2-5 bananas
♕Optional: pineapple, berries, raisins, nuts, or even more bananas for topping


Put a large metal bowl and the beaters to an electric mixer into your freezer.
Brew some coffee, make it strong.
Microwave coconut oil to melt it.
Mix in cacao powder and 1/3 cup / 90g sugar, and stir until homogeneous.  Set aside, it should be more or less fluid.
Once the coffee and chocolate sauce is done, remove the metal bowl and beaters from the freezer.
Allow 3T/ 45mL coffee to cool while you pour the cream into the bowl.
Whip the cream, starting at a low speed and ending fast.  Near the end of the whipping process, add vanilla, coffee, and sugar.
Slice your bananas.
Into three or four large serving glasses, layer banana, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream.  Top with other things, if you so wish.  The chocolate should become solid soon after being poured.

Serve immediately or after refrigerating, with coffee or strong tea.


  1. Looks tasty! I bet you could swim faster after eating this. And "I was very happy after eating this" Haha, good one! BTW, good photo taking!

    1. All that sugar makes swimmers speedy quick. I took good notes during your photo lecture!
