This 3 ingredient, banana pudding recipe is simple, healthy and delightfully sweet!
One of my favorite desserts growing up was my mom’s banana pudding. It was by far one of the most satisfying desserts, with its layers of vanilla wafers between dollops of creamy pudding. It was one of those desserts I could turn into a meal, and probably did when she wasn’t looking!
Now I share my love for banana pudding with my three-year-old. There’s a part of me that wishes she could experience the same delicious recipe that I enjoyed as a kid, but then the other part of me is happy for healthy alternatives that aren’t loaded with preservatives and sugar. I suppose she will have her own fond memories of mom’s “healthy treat” recipes.
This recipe is a take on traditional banana pudding but doesn’t contain any added sugar or gluten. Using banana slices instead of cookies, and sweetening with only ripe bananas, this treat makes a great anytime snack! Plus, I use grass-fed gelatin to firm it up, which is great for your digestive system, skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints!
Here’s my recipe!
1 cup milk of choice (we use raw goat’s milk)
1-2 large ripe bananas
2 tsp grass-fed gelatin
1/2 banana cut into slices
In a blender, mix together bananas and milk.
In a bowl, mix together 2 tsp of gelatin with 2 Tb of water. Set aside.
Warm milk and banana mixture of low-medium heat, stirring constantly.
Whisk mixture into the bowl with the gelatin.
Cover the bottom of a glass dish with banana slices. Pour pudding mixture over the bananas.
Refrigerate for atleast 1/2 hour, or until it reaches the desired consistency.
