This may sound like a guilty pleasure, but the inclusion of bananas puts it firmly in the good-for-you bracket!


2 tbsp groundnut oil
2 tbsp wheat flour
350ml Organic, Calcium or Vanilla Rice Dream
1 vanilla pod
50g 70% chocolate
4 bananas, peeled and thickly sliced


  1. Place the oil and flour in a pan, mix to form a paste and place over a low heat and sizzle gently for about a minute.
  2. Whisk in the milk making sure you go around the edges of the pan with a wooden spoon to catch any hidden flour.
  3. Using a sharp knife, slice down the length of the vanilla pod and using the blade of the knife scrape out the seeds.
  4. Add to the sauce along with the scraped pod.
  5. Bring the sauce up to the boil and bubble gently for a minute or so.
  6. Turn off the heat then add the chocolate.
  7. Whisk in well to form a dark, glossy custard. Serve with the bananas.
  8. If you have any custard left over, use it as a dip for fresh fruits like strawberries, pineapple or oranges. Or even use it to top an extra special trifle!
