Will says: “When it comes to hot days, the only dessert on my mind is Banana Mousse. When I was in Sao Tome and Principe, West Africa, I had a Sous Chef who created a very basic traditional recipe that looked and tasted like banana mousse. Now here is the clever part, there was no gelatine involved in the process instead he used a fine puree from a local leaf. I have refined the recipe to enable everyone to enjoy this recipe at home. Enjoy!”
