  3. Place the biscuit mixture into the prepared tin, press firmly into the base and 3cm around the sides.
  4. Place the banana slices in a food processor or powerful blender.
  5. Purée banana slices, scraping the bowl as needed. Purée until the mixture is creamy and smooth, then add the soya single cream.
