  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 red or green apple - choose red if you want this to be slightly sweeter
  • 50 g cashew nuts
  • 50 g almonds or other nuts of choice
  • 20 - 25 g cocoa or cacao - go for cacao if not cooking
  • 2 tbsp butternut squash puree - I made this but you could buy pumpkin puree and freeze the remainder in ice cube trays for next time
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract - sugar-free
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Place all the ingredients into a high powered blender and whizz until you have a completely smooth paste
  • If you want to have a no-bake chocolate pudding, place the mixture into four serving dishes
  • If you want to make a cake, scoop the mixture into a small cake tin (mine was around 12cm diameter) and cook for 15 - 20 minutes (depending on the size of your tin) at 180 degrees (160 degree fan, gas mark 4)
  • Cool then place in the fridge to set before cutting
