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, and blitz for two to three minutes until smooth creamy consistency. 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, the roasted nuts, fresh berries and fruits and yoghurt. Scoop a dob of banana ice cream on top and serve.
