Health Benefit: In addition to being a rich source of blood pressure–lowering potassium, bananas are a good source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS). FOS is a type of prebiotic that supports digestive health by helping the gut maintain a balance of “friendly” bacteria, or probiotics.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil

    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

    2 tbsp pure maple syrup, divided

    3 cups sliced and frozen bananas

    ¼ cup toasted walnuts + 2 tbsp for garnish

    1 cup frozen strawberries

    3 tbsp plain unsweetened almond milk

    2 tbsp dried unsweetened pineapple, chopped

Preparation

1. In a heat-proof bowl over a pot of simmering water, melt coconut oil. Remove from heat and whisk in cocoa powder and 1 tbsp maple syrup. Set aside to cool.

2. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. To a high-powered blender or food processor, add bananas and purée until smooth. Add ¼ cup walnuts and pulse 3 to 4 times to break up. Transfer mixture to baking pan.

3. To blender, add strawberries, milk and remaining 1 tbsp maple syrup. Purée until smooth. Swirl mixture into baking pan. Drizzle in chocolate mixture and swirl to incorporate. Top with pineapple. Chop remaining 2 tbsp walnuts and sprinkle on top. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours. If freezing for longer, thaw in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes to soften slightly.
