Banoffee sundae

banoffee sundae

Serves 6

  • 6 medium bananas

  • 200 g full-fat Greek yoghurt

  • 1 good pinch ground cinnamon

  • 2-3 tablespoons honey, depending on how ripe the bananas are

  • 50 g raisins

  • 3 tablespoons dark rum

  • 50 g good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)

  • 50 g hazelnuts

  • 4 tablespoons dulce de leche

The night before, place a shallow dish and 6 dessert or sundae glasses in the freezer so they get nice and cold. While they're chilling, slice 4 of the 6 bananas and whiz them up in a food processor with the yoghurt, cinnamon, honey, raisins and rum until smooth. If you have time before you start blending, you can soak the raisins in the rum first to give them a chance to plump up. If not, don't worry, you can just whiz the rum up with the rest of the ingredients for some extra flavour. (If your bananas are ripe, you won't need quite as much honey. However, if they are still a little firm, you will need the full 3 tablespoons.)



Place the smooth banana mixture into the chilled dish from the freezer, and pop it back into the freezer alongside the serving glasses. The ice cream will need about five hours to freeze completely and will be perfect by the next evening.



On the day itself, just before you're ready to serve the sundaes, grate the chocolate and roughly chop the hazelnuts. Toast the nuts in a dry pan for a few minutes until they are golden. Heat the dulce de leche in a small saucepan until it's runny and, while it warms up, slice the remaining 2 bananas.



Remove the glasses from the freezer and start with a layer of the thinly sliced banana. Top with a scoop of banana ice cream, drizzle over the runny dulce de leche and finish off with the toasted hazelnuts and grated dark chocolate. Delicious!

Method

This pudding is delicious and, because you are making the ice cream yourself, great for dinner parties. Don't worry though, you'll see it isn't at all difficult to make. If you are really short of time, you can leave the homemade ice cream and opt for a good-quality, shop-bought vanilla ice cream instead. PS You HAVE to go for full-fat yoghurt in this recipe or you'll get loads of ice crystals and it won't taste as nice

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
