Get the kids involved in Christmas food preparation this year by tempting them with some deliciously indulgent yet simple recipe ideas for desserts.
Moo, the long-life moo-licious milk brand made and distributed in the UK by a co-operative of 2,500 farmers based in the South West of England (with a little help from their cows!), have developed some yummy, scrummy recipes to get your kids’ taste for the creative flowing for the festive season!
Toffee Banoffee Pie
200g (7oz) digestive biscuits, crushed
100g (4oz) butter, melted
300ml (1/2pt) Toffee Banoffee Mini Moo
25g (1oz) demerara sugar
25g (1oz) cornflour
300ml Moo Double Cream
Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter and press over the base and up the sides of an 8in (20.5cm) loose bottom flan tin. Press down with the back of a spoon and chill until firm.
Meanwhile whisk together the Moo Milk, sugar and cornflour and heat gently whisking until you have a thick custard. Cover with a circle of baking parchment and allow to cool.
When cool whisk in 150ml (1/4pt) of the cream. Spoon this into the crumb flan case level and chill for 1 hour.
To serve whip remaining cream and pipe or spoon randomly on top of the pie with slices of bananas to decorate

225g (8oz) fresh strawberries, washed hulled and sliced
350ml (12floz) Moo Full Cream Milk

Fresh strawberry slices
Make up the jelly according to packet instructions and allow to cool.
Break the sponge fingers and divide equally between 6 individual glass dishes. Divide the sliced strawberries between the dishes and pour the jelly over. Allow to cool and chill until set.
Meanwhile make the custard. Whisk together the Moo milk, custard powder and caster sugar, heat gently, whisking until you have a smooth custard. Allow to cool then spoon equal amounts over the set jelly. Chill.
When ready to serve, pipe a small rosette of whipped cream on top of each trifle and decorate with a sliced strawberry.
