  • 100ml double cream
  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 75g smooth peanut butter
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 20g banana chips, crushed, plus 6 whole to serve
  • 2 tbsp salted caramel sauce

  1. Whisk the cream with the vanilla until just starting to stiffen. In a separate bowl, beat the peanut butter with the icing sugar to slacken, then fold the peanut butter mixture and the crushed banana chips into the cream.
