Dairy Free Banana Pudding Recipe

We have been working on a dairy free pudding, in this case a banana pudding using coconut milk.   The following recipe was been reworked a couple of times and the results are pretty good.  In fact, you could eliminate the sugar/sweetener all together when using the roasted bananas.  It all depends on how sweet you like your pudding. If you are so inclined, you could layer the pudding with cookies (as many do), but we prefer them not in our pudding.  It is a personal choice. Also you could strain the bananas before adding to your warm mixture if you do not want lumps.   Again, we wanted the texture of the bananas so we opted not to go this route. 1/4 cup sugar or other sweetener such as honey or gava 3 eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups full fat coconut milk 1/3 cup flour 1/2 Tablespoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract) 4 bananas, roasted Coconut whipped cream (optional - our recipe to be posted later) When your bananas are roasted, let cool for 5-10 minutes then re

The Healthiest Dessert Around

With the beach season quickly approaching, could this HEALTHY dessert be ice cream?  Frozen yogurt? NO, NO, NO! You guessed it, it is a blended banana! That's right. Eat a heaping bowl of frozen, blended banana. It tastes like the freshest, creamiest ice cream you have ever had in your life. This is a great idea for those overripe bananas which many will not eat.  Or, there are times your local grocery store will have a sale on over ripe bananas at a fraction of the cost of the just ripe ones. So, the how-to. Slice up a bunch of bananas. Place them in the freezer. When they are frozen and you have a need for a sweet frozen treat.  Pull them out. Let them sit a few minutes. Blend/Food Process/Puree.  Need a little protein too?  Add a little bit of peanut butter when blending or mix in when the banana mixture is in the bowl. Add some fresh (or frozen) fruit.  Be creative and make this healthy dessert your own! NOW EAT! personal chefs and event
