  • Easy

The easiest ever dessert for entertaining. Caramelised banana and yoghurt make a really light end to a meal and you can put this together in less than 30 minutes



  • bananas 5 large
  • caster sugar 2 tbsp
  • lemon 1, juiced
  • organic honey 2 tbsp plus extra to drizzle
  • low-fat crème fraîche 200ml
  • natural yoghurt 200ml
  • amaretti biscuits a handful, lightly crushed


  • Step 1

    Peel and cut 2 bananas in half lengthways. Put them cut-side up on a roasting tray and sprinkle the caster sugar over. Use a kitchen blowtorch or put them under a hot grill until the sugar has caramelised then leave to cool for a few minutes.

  • Step 2

    Peel and mash the remaining bananas with a fork then mix with the lemon juice and honey.

  • Step 3

    Whisk the crème fraîche and yoghurt together until smooth and thickened slightly. Fold in the crushed banana mixture and add half the crushed amaretti.

  • Step 4

    Put the caramelised bananas into 4 serving glasses (cut them in half if they’re too long) and spoon the banana mixture over. Sprinkle with the remaining amaretti and drizzle with a little more honey to serve.
