Vanilla Chantilly

3 cups heavy cream

2 teaspoons vanilla paste

1 cup white chocolate

½ cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

1 ½ tablespoons crème de banane

4 tablespoons cornstarch

2 bananas, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. For Vanilla Chantilly cream, bring cream and vanilla paste to a boil in a saucepan. Pour mixture over white chocolate to melt. Cool mixture overnight.
  2. For filling, boil milk, butter, sugar, vanilla, and crème. Temper in yolks and cornstarch. Bring mixture back to a boil. Strain and cool.
