Try using tortilla wraps to make this luxuriously rich Mexican dessert. The sweetness of dulce de leche paired with fresh fruit and lime juice should satisfy all tastes.

Begin by brushing one side of each tortilla with melted butter. Place the tortilla butter side down and spread two heaped tablespoons of the dulce de leche over each tortilla. Lay banana slices on half of each tortilla, fold it over and gently press down to seal.

Make the salsa by mixing the pineapple, blackberries, agave and lime juice together. Keep a little of each to use as a garnish.

Gently warm the remaining the dulce de leche in a small saucepan and set aside.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and cook the quesadillas two at a time over a medium heat for 2-3 mins on each side. 

Remove from the heat, cut into wedges and serve with a drizzle of the dulce de leche, a dollop of whipped cream and some pineapple and blueberries. Eat immediately.
