Once the syrup has cooled, strain into a shallow bowl.

Take the spongefingers and quickly dip into the chai spice syrup, coating both sides, allowing tow fingers per person.  Place onto individual serving plates.  Place sliced banana onto the spongefingers, followed by a dolop of whipped cream.

Drizzle with a little extra chai spice syrup and serve.
