Monicas’ homemade banoffee pie

January is the month for going to the gym and green smoothies but you need a little treat to get you through the long, dull month. The little pots of Banoffee pie, is the perfect treat. This is actually one of my best friends mum’s recipe. I was always so excited to go to Lili’s for dinner in the off chance her mum, Monica would make Banoffee pie.

Since becoming more confident in the kitchen, there was no need for anyone else to have to make it for me. Taking under 15 minutes to make, It’s so easy to prepare, you could do it blind folded.

Ingredients

.95g of digestive biscuits

. A banana
