How to
Cover a medium size round pan with plastic wrap, cover the sides of the pan evenly, taking care that the plastic comes out of the pan. Combine the crushed cookies with the melted butter. Pour in the prepared pan and cover the entire bottom with the back of a glass. Put in the refrigerator.

Pour the banana and the lemon juice into the blender and blend to reduce it to a puree. Pour the gelatin leaves with 2 tbsp water in a small bowl.

Pour the water with the sugar into a deep and heavy saucepan and bring to boil on a high heat, cook until the sugar melts.

Add drained gelatin leaves and stir until the gelatin melts too.

Stir in the banana puree.

Stir in the whipped cream. Pour this mixture over the crust and keep in refrigerator about 1 hour.

Prepare the chocolate bavarois: Pour the gelatin leaves in a small bowl with water. After 2 minutes dry it and combine with 20 ml of warm water. Stir until it dissolves. Stir in the whipped cream and add the melted chocolate.

Pour this chocolate mixture over the banana mixture into the pan. Refrigerate overnight.

Before serving, remove the Bavarois from the pan by taking it with the plastic wrap that comes out the pan. Very carefuly remove the wrap and transfer the bavarois onto a serving plate.

Slice half a banana and sprinkle with juice of half lemon to prevent browning.

Cover the top of the bavarois with melted chocolate, the banana slices and a handful of chopped walnuts. Slice and serve!
