Deep Joy Banoffee Pie

Bananas contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps promote serotonin the feel-good brain chemical. Both bananas and dates are great sources of potassium. It is believed that stress can cause potassium levels to drop so topping them up can stave off low moods and depression.
