This simply sweet snack is a So Delicious and Go Dairy Free Snackable Recipe Contest entry. Read about the contest here.
Growing up, my mom would make a lot of banana pudding. I was always amazed at how delicious and effortless it would be. Her quick and easy recipe requires instant pudding mix and a tub of chemically-laden whipped topping. I was inspired to create something just as simple, without all of the preservatives and artificial flavors. The So Delicious® coconut-based whipped topping and cultured coconut milk are essential in making this dessert both easy and healthy. The recipe is the perfect serving for two (or one with a big sweet tooth).
2 - 6 oz So Delicious® Dairy Free vanilla cultured coconut milk
1/4 c simple syrup
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium bananas, sliced
10 vanilla wafers, vegan
1/2 c So Delicious® Dairy Free CocoWhip
For pudding, combine the cultured coconut milk, simple syrup, and vanilla in a saucepan on medium low heat. Dissolve the cornstarch in water in a separate container. Once the mixture is heated, add the liquid cornstarch and stir constantly to avoid lumps. As soon as the pudding thickens, take off heat and allow to cool.
In order to ensure your layers are even, separate the pudding into three parts and the other ingredients in half. In your serving dish, layer the pudding, banana, wafers, CocoWhip, pudding, banana, wafers, pudding, and finish it off with the remaining CoCoWhip. Chill for one hour. This will allow for all the flavors to fuse. Enjoy!
