Wash the green bananas to remove any debris.
Cut the tips of each banana and make an incision length ways with a pairing knife. Follow the incision around the banana in a circle so that the peel is removed and discard.
Slice the banana into large discs and put in the blender with the water and puree.
Once pureed pour the liquidised formula into a large sauce and begin to boil then reduce heat while stirring.
Then stir in the coconut milk with the spices, pink salt and vanilla.
Finally pour the desired amount of condensed coconut milk and allow to boil for a further 5 minutes. Do not overstir as it will quickly become too thin, stir once of twice throughout the given time.
