Chocolate Banana Torte

This killer recipe is so simple and easy, anyone could do it.  I mean it.  Like, a really dumb monkey could do it. And they love bananas!!! Oh, it's perfect.  Just imagine, a cute little monkey making this torte full of potassium rich bananas that will keep his or her muscles from cramping up... and with a shot of the amino acid tryptophan that is found in bananas, serotonin (the happy hormone) can be created in the monkey's cute little brain!  Folks, it looks like we could have a really stupid, cramp-free, happy monkey on our hands!  But it'd probably be easier if you just made the torte yourself... so without any further adieu, here's the recipe:


  • 2 + 1/2 cups dates
  • 2 + 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa powder 
  • 6 ripe bananas
  • 1 + 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2/3 cup apple cider
  • 1 + 1/2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 + 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a food processor, blend all of the crust ingredients until the mixture starts to stick together and you get a ball.
  2. Press this mixture into a pie pan.
  3. In a food processor, blend the filling ingredients.
  4. Pour this mixture over the crust and freeze for about 40 minutes until the torte is solid, but not totally frozen so you can't cut it!
Note: This torte is meant to be eaten semi frozen. It's like a torte/ice creamy treat thing!  It can also be stored in the freezer and brought out to thaw when you'd like to have some!
