Banana Pudding has become one of my new favorite dessert recipes!
I am always thinking of ways to create new healthy dessert recipes, as I absolutely love dessert!
So I thought what better way than to add a little fruit to my pudding recipes. Pudding is a delightful treat. Homemade pudding is quick and easy to make.
Adding bananas is a great way to sneak nutrients into your dessert and add a new favorite to your list of banana recipes.
Bananas have approx. 602 mg of potassium, 2 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, along with vitamins and minerals such as Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Magnesium. A great source of nutrients.
So how do you make pudding while avoiding food allergies?
Healthy Dessert Recipe Ingredients:
Preheat oven to 350
Take the whole banana with peel and wrap completely in foil.
Place the banana in the oven and bake for approximately 15-20 mins. The banana should be a little softer and warm.
Remove the banana from the foil and peel.
Place the banana in a blender along with 1 cup of rice milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour the mixture into a pot along with the remaining 3 cups of rice milk. Whisk in a ¼ cup of tapioca flour; stir until the flour is dissolved. Turn onto medium heat and bring mixture to a boil, continue to stir constantly to prevent sticking.
Note: The consistency should thicken as the pudding boils and will thicken a little more while cooling.
Remove pot from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Pour into desired serving dishes, serves approx. 4. This dish is great warm or chilled. I like to serve with a few mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top (I use Enjoy Life Brand).
