Banana Split Rolls – Dessert Trio Recipe!

This recipe is long overdue. Unfortunately I did not make them for the Café like I mentioned we planned earlier. However, the folks of Sturgis, SD thought these were phenomenal, and they’re the type of people who think vegan = yucky.

Be Amazed. Somewhat work intensive – but oh boy, they’re worth it.

Yield: A lot. Like, 15-20 Rolls at least.

Prep Time: 1 Hour + Dehydrating time + Prepare & clean up (30 minutes – 1 hour)

 

Ingredients:

Basic Wrap-

1 Cup of Dates

½ Cup of Water

1 Cup Almonds

2 ½ Bananas

1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ Cup Sprouted Buckwheat

Dash of Salt

 

(Split into 3 Parts)

 

Vanilla:

1 ½ tsp vanilla (alcohol free)

Dash Cardamom

 

Strawberry:

¾ Cup Strawberries

2 tbsp Xylitol, Stevia, or 1 tbsp Agave Nectar

 

Chocolate:

2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder

1 Tbsp Raw Carob Powder

1 Tbsp of Xylitol/Stevia or ½ Tbsp Agave Nectar

 

 

Fillings!

 

**Prepare ¼ Cup of Soaked Irish Moss Beforehand – you will use it for Vanilla & Chocolate**

Vanilla Whipped Topping:

½ Cup Irish Moss

2 tsp Vanilla (alcohol free)

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1/8 Cup of Cashews

¼ Cup Xylitol/Stevia/or Agave Nectar

Dash of salt

 

Chocolate Drizzle Sauce:

2 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder

2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil

¼ Cup Irish Moss

1-2 Tbsp Agave Nectar

Dash of salt

½ tsp vanilla (alcohol free)

Strawberry-Fig Jam:

¼ Cup strawberries

¼ Cup soaked Figs

**This is my favorite jam recipe ever! It tastes like the original, is so easy to make, and is delicious!**

 

Directions:

1) In a high-speed blender, combine all basic wrap ingredients and blend until smooth and it has a dough-like consistency.

2) Split into 3 parts (keep one part in the blender). Start with Vanilla – add the cardamom and alcohol-free vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.

3) On an Excalibur dehydrator tray with a teflex sheet, gently smooth evenly into a square.

4) Repeat the steps with both the Strawberry & Chocolate Parts. You should now have 3 dehydrator trays – vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate. Dehydrate for at least 8-12 hours.

5) After the trays have dehydrated overnight, flip them gently and let them continue to dry out – but NOT get crispy. You want them malleable enough to roll.

6) **Note- make Irish Moss before you create the fillings** In a high-speed blender, combine ingredients for vanilla filling and blend until you get a ‘whipped topping’ that is fluffy & delicious. Put in a bowl and set aside.

7) After rinsing your blender, combine ingredients for your chocolate sauce/pudding. Blend until smooth & deliciously creamy. Put in a bowl and set aside.

8) Combine Strawberry Jam ingredients in a blender, and blend until thoroughly mixed. It should look and taste just like Jam. Put in a bowl and set aside.

9) Score/Cut each tray into long strips – no longer than 1 – 1 ½ inches wide. In the strawberry wrap – lightly glaze the inside with the chocolate sauce. Nicely roll it like a cinnamon bun.

10) In a vanilla strip – put the strawberry jam to coat the inside, and like the strawberry roll, easily roll it like a cinnamon bun.

11) Finally – in the chocolate wrap – use the vanilla whipped topping and coat the inside – then roll it lightly like a cinnamon bun.

 

You now have the most delicious little dessert trio. It may have been a bit of work – but they’re SO Delicious! Mix and match the fillings – drizzle with your favorite dessert sauce – and share this recipe! I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved creating it. 😉
