The wedding we’ve all been waiting for is finally upon us, yes Prince Harry is marrying Meghan Markle this Saturday and we’ve got the perfect pudding recipe to celebrate. Conjured up by our fave fusion foodie Anupreet Attridge, this banana, caramel chia parfait takes inspiration from two of the bride and groom’s favourite foods.
Meghan is a fairly healthy kinda gal and according to MSN her favourite snack is chia seed pudding. Harry on the other hand, likes a bit of the naughty things in life, the sweet treats, and according to one of the royal chef’s he has a bit of a penchant for banana and caramel cake. Anupreet has combined the two and put her own twist on it to come up with a pudding fit for a Prince… and Princess!
This recipe is enough to feed four people, so that’s basically Harry, Meghan, Prince Charles and the Queen all sorted 😉
What’s In It?
- 100g Greek Yogurt
- 60g Caster Sugar
- 2 Egg Whites
- 2 Ripe Bananas
- 3 tbsp Tinned Caramel (plus extra to decorate)
- 2 tsp Chia Seeds (plus extra to decorate)
- 8 Pecans
How Do I Make It?
To make the parfait add the egg whites to a clean, dry bowl and whisk with an electric whisk on medium for approximately 1 minute, or until they begin to form soft peaks.
Slowly add the caster sugar a spoon at a time, continuing to whisk on a medium setting, until the egg whites and sugar form to make a meringue. You’ll know it’s ready when it looks silky and glossy and forms stiff peaks – if you want you can try the ultimate meringue test by holding the bowl upside down over your head, but on your head be it!
Fold in the whipped Greek yogurt and chia seeds, until evenly combined throughout the meringue.
In a separate bowl, mash the bananas and mix in the caramel.
Divide two thirds of the chia parfait mixture evenly between four glass ramekin dishes.
Add a layer of the banana caramel on top and then cover over with the remaining parfait.
Top with chopped pecan nuts, a drizzle of caramel and a small sprinkling of chia seeds.
TOP TIP – If you’re serving this at a Royal wedding themed party why not try serving them in dainty teacups for a real wow factor that will get everyone talking!
