I think the heavens were against me whilst writing this post as I lost my edited pictures twice when my PC just shut down! Now that's a big thing considering I'm no pro at Photoshop and it does really take me ages to make even minor changes.
Anyhow, back to the matter on hand, let me first start by saying that this elegant dessert took me literally 5 minutes to prepare. Now that excudes whipping the cream as I had some I had prepared earlier sitting in the freezer for me. So if you include that step, it will take only 10 minutes in total. Easy peasy eh!! The inspiration behind this yummy dessert comes from my beautiful neighbour Simi who came as such a blessing in my life. She sent me this dessert many moons ago but I've made a few changes to it that I feel takes it up a notch. The great thing about this recipe is that it is extremely versatile. You can add some chopped toasted peanuts to it if you please or perhaps a dash of fudge sauce as a separate layer too!
I made this for my sister and her huband who unexpectedly dropped in a few nights ago. This is best served after chilling for half an hour. I did find that the graham cracker crust layers became slightly soft the next day. If you did want to prepare this in advance, I would probably advise toasting the graham crackers as you would for cheesecake. So if you're looking to make a stunning dessert in a matter of minutes, look no further.
Bananas and Cream Pudding
250 ml sweetened whipping cream
1 tin Nestle cream- banana flavour (175gms)

Whipping cream must be chilled to 2-4 degrees for best results. Using the wire whip, whip the cream on medium speed until 2/3 done. Then whip at high speed until stiff peaks form.
Slice banana into thin rounds. Crush seven of the Digestive biscuits finely using a rolling pin and chop the rest coarsely. In a bowl, fold the whipped cream into Nestle cream.
To assemble, start by adding the cream mixture to you serving glass followed by a few rounds of bananas. Then add a layer of crushed biscuit. Repeat once again. Garnish with whipped cream and a few biscuit crumbs.
Chill for half an hour and serve. This recipes will make 6 servings.
