Banana diplomat cream (pudding base)

* When the custard is chilled, make the stabilized whipped cream. * Place the chilled whipping cream (heavy cream) in a chilled metal bowl (of your mixer). * Place the water in a small microwaveable bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin and stir it in. Allow the gelatin to bloom in the water for about 10 minutes. * Microwave the bloomed gelatin for about 10 – 20 seconds to dissolve the gelatin. But DO NOT let it boil. * Stir in about 1 tbsp of the chilled heavy cream to temper the gelatin mixture. * Start whisking the heavy cream and pour in the gelatin mixture. Make sure the gelatin isn’t poured directly onto the whisks, since this will cause the gelatin to set and forms clumps. * Whisk the heavy cream on high for a few seconds to incorporate the gelatin. * Once the gelatin is incorporated, lower the speed to medium high, and whisk the cream until it’s just starting to form stiff peaks. Make sure to NOT let the heavy cream curdle / become grainy. * Fold in about ⅓ of the whipped cream into the banana flavored custard. Once mixed well, either fold the rest of the whipped cream into the custard, or fold the custard into the remaining whipped cream in the mixer bowl. Either way is fine. Now the pudding base is ready.
