Banana mousse with butterscotch ripple


This dessert is so easy, it can be done in under 10 min, then all it needs is chilling time. It can be done way it advance and it will blow your socks off.

Ingredients (serves 4)

4 large banans, ideally chilled in the freezer for an hour

500ml of whipping cream

2 tbsp of lemon juice

100 g of soft, light brown sugar

50g of butter

Dark chocolate for decoration

A blender


So, first make the butterscotch sauce, because it needs to cool down before you can assemble the dessert. Put the sugar, 150ml of cream and the butter in a sauce pan, over medium heat. Keep stirring until the sugar disolves completely. Let it come to a boil and bubble away for 2-3 min, while stirring constantly, so the sauce doesn’t burn. Then turn it off and let it cool until room temperature.

Put  your banans in the blender, along with lemon juice and the rest of the cream. Blend until thick, creamy and fluffy ( about 2-3 min).

Once the sauce is cooled and your mousse is done- you can assemble the dessert. I like to serve it in a glass, doing it by layers. Some mousse, some sauce, some mousse and some sauce again, trying to ripple it through a bit. (You can use a toothpick for that) I make a swirl of butterscotch sauce on the top and grate chocolate over it.

Then let it cool for 30 min minimum before serving. Enjoy 😉
