Make the custard cream. Please refer to Recipe ID: 630101.
Cut the banana diagonally. Slice the sponge cake into bite-sized pieces. Lightly rinse the strawberries, pat them dry and cut them in half.
Put the granola and custard cream into a serving cup and even out the surface using a spoon. Squeeze the whipped cream over the top and place the sponge cake pieces over the top of that. Then squeeze whipped cream over everything once again.
Decorate the parfait with the bananas, strawberries, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Garnish with the mint leaves to finish.
You can use store-bought whipped cream, but I recommend using heavy cream that's at least 35 % butterfat.

Story Behind this Recipe
This is a dessert that's made with bananas and chocolate sauce. I often made this when my children were small. This is a variation off the "Chocolate Banana Tart", Recipe ID: 1654808. It's also good without the custard. Make it however you like.
For Step 1, let the custard cream cool, then chill well before use. This custard cream isn't so sweet so please adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste. For Step 2, I used 3 pieces of sponge cake cut into 3 cm cubes. You can drizzle the chocolate sauce over the granola as well. Make this parfait however you like.
