Instructions
  1. Peel, chop and freeze the bananas at least the day before you plan to make the pudding.
  2. At least the day before you plan to make the pudding, peel, chop and freeze the bananas.
    When you are ready to prepare the dessert, place the bananas and coconut cream in a food processor or blender, and blitz for a couple of minutes. Scrape down a couple of times during this process to ensure it is evenly blended.
  3. Reserve some plain mixture for the inner cherry core by almost filling one of the small soufflé/ramekin dishes, and keep in the freezer whilst you prepare the outer layer.
  4. Stir the dried fruit into the remaining nice cream mixture and place it in the 2 pint bowl. Insert the clean soufflé/ramekin dish into the centre of this mixture – this is to create a space for the cherry core to fill later. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
  5. Meanwhile, blend the cherries with your reserved plain mixture to make the cherry core and return it to the freezer.
  6. When you are ready to finish assembling the pudding, remove both bowls from the freezer. In order to remove the dish that is creating the space for the cherry core, you need to carefully pour boiling water to about three-quarters full in the empty soufflé /ramekin, trying not to get the frozen mixture wet. Wait a minute or so before carefully spooning the water out of the bowl, into the sink. You will now be able to safely remove the bowl/ramekin from the large bowl and then spoon the cherry mixture as the core of the pudding. Return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes, and up to 2 weeks.
To serve
  1. Heat the chocolate and dairy-free milk in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir until combined and pour into a jug.
  2. Place the pudding into a bowl of hot water for no more than a minute, turn upside-down and decorate with a sprig of holly. Slice and serve with the chocolate sauce.
