Healthy Banana Pudding Recipe
So a few weeks ago I told you about the no sugar challenge I was doing. That challenge had some ups and downs and definitely did not turn out to be what I expected it to be.
However I still consider it a success, because I came up with this no sugar, no honey, no agave, no maple syrup, no dried fruit, no coconut nectar and no sweet fairy dust dessert.
It doesn’t look majestic or anything, but it’s a really satisfying sweet treat.
Overall, I am grateful for this challenge, because I found out I can make a lot of recipes using just almonds and bananas. Now I read the last sentence and it just sounds sad.
Health and Beauty Benefits
This almond banana pudding recipe is very simple, but rich in fiber, magnesium, potassium and also vitamin E – a great anti-aging vitamin.
I wouldn’t say that people who want to lose weight right now should make this recipe every day, but in case you crave something sweet – this is a good option.
Remember to soak the almonds, not only so they blend easier, but also so you can absorb more of their amazing nutrients.
- 1/2 cup almonds, soaked
- 1 banana
- some vanilla or cinnamon
- Rinse and drain the soaked almonds, and place them with the banana in a hand blender jar.
- Add a pinch of vanilla and using your hand blender process until smooth. Optionally chop some almonds and mix into the pudding or on top. Place the almond banana pudding into a small dessert glass (mine was about 50ml) and enjoy.
