    ml
    milk

Method

15 min
 

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth. Divide the mixture between 8 ramekins and place them in a water bath. Ensure that the water comes half way up the sides of the ramekins.

Bake for 20 minutes until set but slightly jiggly.

Puddings can be served warm. Or serve it cold after refrigerating for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Sprinkle some macadamia nuts on top of each dessert and garnish with mint, if you prefer.

Tips:

If you are not too worried about going completely sugar-free then feel free to add an extra splash of honey or maple syrup to sweeten it before baking the custards.

The tops of the puddings will discolour slightly after being baked due to the bananas but the insides will still remain green from the matcha.
