I made this recipe once as is and it was good. I made it again with a couple of tweaks and it was outstanding! First, I used three bananas instead of two, second while the sweetened condensed milk thing is cool, it is far easier (and taste exactly the same) to just buy a can of dulce de leche. You can get it in the latin section of the grocery store (at least in Texas you can). Third, to cut the sweetness a little I made a coffee flavored whipped cream by dissolving 1/2 a teaspoon of instant coffee in the cream. Just let it sit a couple of minutes and it will dissolve, then add 1 teaspoon of sugar and whipped the cream per the directions. I also put the bananas in first and made it in a cheesecake pan for a pretty presentation. In short, the recipe as is is pretty good, but the changes I made took it to the next level. I can't take credit for the changes though, I used the original Hungry Monk (where banoffee pie originated) recipe as guidance.
