This is more creamy ice than ice-cream; it doesn't have the silky texture of a classic churned custard, but the bananas add real richness and texture. Get the kids involved in the sandwiching and dunking. And remember: chocolate-covered fingers are the easiest to clean.

Ingredients

About 600g very ripe banana flesh (5-7 bananas, skin turning black)

500ml coconut creamJuice of

½ a lemon

150g soft brown sugar

400g dark chocolate callets (buttons)

20 rectangular ice-cream wafers

30g toasted coconut chips (shaved)

Method

In a food processor add bananas, coconut cream, lemon juice and sugar and blend until smooth.

Pour mixture into a rectangular container, about 10 centimetres by 30 centimetres, lined with cling film. Choose a container that best matches the shape of your wafers. Freeze for six hours or overnight.

Before assembling, melt chocolate in a small bowl over simmering water. Remove from heat when fully melted.

Cut set ice-cream into 10 slices and sandwich together between wafers.

Dip one end of the sandwich into the melted chocolate, then into toasted coconut and lie sandwich on a lined tray. Put back in the freezer for five minutes to set the chocolate.
