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.
