Raw Banana Cacao Sorbet

This one’s a keeper! I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before. It’s been so long since I’ve had too many bananas that I’ve had to freeze them. Thus, it’s been a long time since I’ve had this sorbet.

If you love bananas dipped in chocolate, this recipe is for you.

It’s also really easy.


  • 3 frozen ripe bananas
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 heaping tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 heaping tablespoon raw honey

Start by pealing and freezing the bananas the day before (or a few days before). I would recommend a zip-lock baggy that you squeeze the air out of. You don’t want them to turn brown (ha! Like you’ll notice with the added cacao.).

When you’re ready to blend, break the frozen bananas into 1 inch lengths (or cut them for they are pretty hard) and then add all ingredients to Vita-mix. It doesn’t take very long to blend and you’ll want to use the tamper to press the banana into the blades.

With three bananas you get 4 to 5 servings – unless you like big servings (which I do).

I highly recommend this one. The only real problem is making sure there are ripe bananas available to use. 

Hope you like it too!

  1. Thanks Maria,

    My friends at Raw Vegan Source always carry vanilla powder. Here is a link to what it looks like Vanilla powder. This stuff is actually pretty common yet unfortunately expensive! You could use vanilla extract, but I find that it adds a little medicine (chemical) taste.

    I haven’t really gotten into fermented foods yet – or – I haven’t really connected with fermented foods yet to the point where I want to post them. The one exception is the fermented nut cheesecake! That one is an absolute keeper!

    If you know of anything I should try with regards to fermented foods, I’m all ears!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Sounds awesome!

    WHERE do i find vanilla powder? (powdered vanilla bean?)

    Your recipes rock….have you played with fermenting foods?


    Keep them great ideas coming!
