Ingredients (serves 6)
– 1 C milk (can be substituted for coconut or almond milk)
– ½ C cream (can be substituted for coconut cream or almond milk)
– 1 ripe banana, mashed
– 1 star anise
– 2 T honey
– 1 cinnamon stick
– 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways
– Pinch of salt
– 1 C cooked red rice
– 1½ C cooked quinoa

To finish
– Freshly sliced banana plus 4 ripe bananas for the ice cream.
– Roasted pepitas, linseeds, poppy seeds and raw almonds.
– Fresh berries and other fruit of choice.
– Greek yoghurt.

Method
To make the banana ice cream:
– Peel, slice and freeze the bananas in resealable bags.
– Place the banana pieces into the bowl of a food processor, blitz for two to three minutes until smooth and creamy.
– Reserve in freezer.

For the pudding:
– Place the milk, cream, banana, star anise, cinnamon stick and salt into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
– Drop in the quinoa and rice and cook slowly while stirring. The mixture will begin to thicken like a porridge.
– Add the honey to taste. Once the consistency is good, remove from heat and spoon into bowls.
– Garnish with banana slices, roasted nuts, fresh berries, fruits and yoghurt as desired. Scoop a dob of banana ice cream on top and serve.
