1) Melt the butter. Place the graham crackers in a food processor and whizz until they are completely crushed.
2) Add the melted butter.
3) Remove and use to line a 9 inch removable base pie dish.
4) Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
5) Place the 2 cans of unopened condensed milk into a pan of simmering water for 2 hours. Extra water may need to be added from time to time to ensure that the tins are always completely covered.
6) Drain the water away and carefully open the tins.
7) Mash the bananas and spoon into the thickened condensed milk. Pour over the graham cracker base and level with a knife. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
8) Mix the honey into the thick Greek yoghurt and pour over the pie.
It can be chilled for up to 4 hours.
To serve the stylish way: Dust a little grated chocolate over the pie just before serving.
This is the dessert that I dream of with passion as it never fails to live up to its expectations – a combination of banana and toffee within a
biscuit base. Whenever I see this dessert on a restaurant menu I look no further – its my favourite choice. Traditionally the pie is topped with cream and I feel that this spoils it. It’s the toffee and banana part that is divine, so I have written this recipe for all those who do not like thick cream but prefer Greek yoghurt!
This recipe is so popular that there is even a website about it! There are endless variations and hopefully my variation will become one of your favourites.
