The Wooden Spoon berry banana bonanza
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
3/4 cup fat-free half and half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Wooden Spoon sugar-free Wild Berry sorbet
Banana chips - optional
For sauce, whisk sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch in small saucepan; whisk in half and half until well combined and mixture is blended. Bring just to boil on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cut banana in half crosswise; peel and cut lengthwise. Place in dessert dish; top with scoop of sorbet; drizzle with one to two tablespoons chocolate sauce and top with one to two tablespoons whipped cream. Sprinkle with almonds and chips, if desire. Repeat for additional portions.
Makes 1 serving (about 2 1/2 carb choices).
NOTE: The nutrition analysis program doesn't contain all the ingredients to calculate, but 1 tablespoon chocolate sauce is half a carb choice, the banana half to one carb choice and one carb choice for 1/2 cup Wooden Spoon sorbet. Carbs would be minimal in the few nuts and whipped topping garnish.
