Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Trifle

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Trifle {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Refined Sugar-Free}

Hello dear friends,

I’m still traveling, {so pardon my lack of online love lately}, but thought I’d share this little treat I packed for the road before leaving on vacation a little {long?} while back: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Trifle. Because chocolate + peanut butter are awesome. And chocolate cake + peanut butter pudding + bananas + whipped cream are even more awesome… naturally! And everything is better in a jar, right? ;)

Ok, ok, if you’re not into bananas you can easily skip or substitute with ripe persimmon and it will still be an awesome little treat ;) — sheesh, look at the trouble you banana dislikers are causing — can’t even share a recipe without apologizing! :) Some ripe persimmon or just jam, and maybe some dried fruit or nuts would work perfectly well here in place of bananas… The doors are wide open with this kind of treat

One can say this recipe was somewhat inspired by this pie, and also by the fact I had some brownies left over that needed to be used up before hitting the road…

Now I know it looks all fancy in the photos, but in reality it’s the fastest thing to throw together and makes a nice portable treat or a decadent dessert to share with friends.

The recipe makes 2 of the jars depicted, but I’d say it’s more like 4-6 servings if divided between smaller jars and amongst reasonable people who don’t eat desserts by the jar… ;)

Ingredients

Chocolate Cake:

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding:

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter {organic if possible}
  • 1 ripe banana {or a small ripe persimmon, or some jam, or just omit and add more sweetener}
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup {or agave, etc.}
  • dash of salt

Coconut Whipped Cream:

  • 1 can refrigerated canned full-fat coconut milk {chilled overnight}
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Topping & Layering:

  • 2-3 ripe bananas, sliced {or alternatively use chopped persimmon or just some nuts or dried berries, or jam}
  • Optional: cacao nibs, chocolate chips, cinnamon or extra cacao powder for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Prepare cake as per directions here. Cool and slice into small squares. Set aside.
  2. Blend all peanut butter banana pudding ingredients together until smooth. Adjust sweetness to taste. Set aside.
  3. Scoop out the solid white part of the coconut milk from the chilled can {make sure not to add the water, but only the solids} into a mixing bowl. Whip with a mixer until fluffy, then add remaining ingredients and mix through. Set aside.
  4. Assemble the trifle by layering some chocolate cake bits, then top with a layer of pudding, then some sliced bananas, then repeat until you use up all the ingredients. Top each jar with whipped cream, then sprinkle with toppings of your choice and enjoy! Keep refrigerated if not consuming straight away.

Happy Baking!

Audrey
