1 Minute Chocolate Sauce

The Chef's Challenge has now moved on to dessert.

There's no way to get around it.  Sometimes you just want warm, creamy, chocolate.  

Here's a guilt-free chocolate sauce you can make it just 1 minute.  All you need are a few key ingredients that you can keep stocked in your pantry: cocoa powder, vanilla, non-dairy milk, and a banana.  

My Chef's tip is to warm the banana in the microwave.  This will help intensify the natural sweetness of the banana...plus it helps emulsify the cocoa powder for a richer consistency.
