Dark Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Banana Sorbet with Raspberry Sauce

This is what we call here at the ShugaShack a "food surprise!" On most occasions, a food surprise is some sort of sweet dessert or baked good that is oh-so-chocolatey. Desserts of this nature are BandMan's favorite. So when the mood strikes me, and my fancy is tickled, and the moon is in perfect alignment with the starts, I come up with some sort of chocolate food surprise for him. And then I torture him with it for a good portion of the day.

This instance was no different. Well it was a little different. I guess the only difference between this food surprise and all the rest is that in comparison, the rest of them sucked. This is the dessert of all desserts.

Ya dig?

1 c maple syrup
2 c water
3/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp tapioca flour
1 banana
1/2 c peanut butter

  1. Bring the maple syrup, water, cocoa, salt, and vanilla to boil, and immediately kill the heat. 
  2. When you feel comfortable with the level of coolness, pour that mixture into your blender. Add the banana and peanut butter and whiz that thing to death. 
  3. Pour the new mixture into a tupperware dish and stash in the freezer uncovered until frozen solid, 2-3 hours or so. 
  4. Once its frozen, take it out, break it up into pieces and put it through the blender once more. This makes to the sorbet oh-so-creamy. 
  5. Put the newly whizzed sorbet back in the freezer, uncovered, for another hour at least.
  6. CHOW.
10 oz frozen raspberries, thawed
juice from 1/2 lemon

  1. Using a sieve, push the raspberries through using a spatula to smear them across the mesh colander stuff. 
  2. After you feel satisfied with squeezing those babies dry, mix in the lemon juice, discard the seeds and left behind pulp, and drizzle on everything. 

That sure is BandMan licking his bowl.
Pay you no mind to the ton of laundry in the background.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
