Banana spring rolls

A fabulous banana dish that can be prepared during quiet periods. The spring rolls can be kept in the freezer without loss of quality. This combination with white chocolate and lemongrass is very unusual, but is easy to adapt to create your own variations. The white chocolate can, for example, be substituted with pure chocolate or the lemongrass with mixed spice or five-spice mix.
