Prep 5 mins Chill 2 hrs Cook 10 mins


  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 3 cups low-fat 1% milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/2 ounce dark sweet baking chocolate
  • Grated peel of 1 orange

Make It

1. In a food processor, mix bananas, 1 cup milk, orange peel, honey, and vanilla extract until pureed, about 2 minutes.

2. Pour mixture into a deep saucepan. Whisk in remaining 2 cups milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking regularly. Reduce heat to simmer. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into water until dissolved. Whisk into banana mixture. Continue heating and whisking until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Pour into a large bowl and cover. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

3. To serve, ladle 1-1/3 cups banana mixture into a dessert dish or bowl. Using a vegetable peeler, shave a bit of the chocolate on top to garnish.
