  • 3/4 cup (185ml) thickened cream
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) full-cream milk
  • 6 extra-large Coles Australian Free Range Egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup (55g) caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 small bananas, peeled, halved lengthways
  • 2 tbs caster sugar, extra
  • 20g butter
  • 8 scoops Coles Mocha Ice Cream
  • 1/2 cup (80g) dry-roasted almonds, coarsely chopped



In a small saucepan, combine the cream and milk. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until blended. Gradually whisk in the warm cream mixture, then return mixture to the pan. Using a flat-edged silicone spatula, stir mixture over medium-low heat, without simmering, for 5 mins or until the custard thickens and coats the spatula (custard is ready when it leaves a path on the back of the spatula when a finger is drawn across). Strain custard through a fine sieve into a heatproof bowl. Stir in the vanilla and salt.


Sprinkle cut sides of the banana with the extra sugar. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the banana, cut-side down, and cook for 1-2 mins or until caramelised.


Divide the banana and ice cream among serving bowls. Pour custard over the ice cream. Sprinkle with almond and serve immediately.
