  • 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 C sugar
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs


  • Whip heavy whipping cream until it looks like whipped cream.
  • Mix in sugar until incorporated.
  • Peel and slice banana.
  • Microwave the slices for 45 seconds. (This may vary by microwave. You are looking for something very soft, but not liquid.)
  • Mash the microwaved banana and let it come to room temperature.
  • Stir the banana and cacao nibs into the whipped cream.


Tip: Most recipes that call for bananas recommend that you use overripe bananas because they are extra sweet. This requires advance planning. If you have a spur of the moment desire to bake with bananas, you can microwave a not-so-ripe banana to bring out its sweetness.
