Banana pudding is a favorite of mine, add coconut to make it coconut banana pudding and you’ve sent me over the edge. It goes back to my childhood. My grandmother made banana pudding at least twice a month for Sunday lunch. It was amazingly creamy and delicious.
Now that I’m a mom, I want to make these same recipes for my boys and create all these wonderful memories of our own. Well, we do create a lot of memories, but none around banana pudding until now. You see, as most of you know, my youngest has severe food allergies. He’s allergic to dairy and nuts. I know what you’re thinking, just substitute the milk for soy milk. I wish it were that easy. Pudding won’t set with soy milk! Eeek!
We tried it once, before we read the package, and were terribly disappointed with the soup we made. Yep. Soup. It never thickened.
No fretting! I’ve found a way! Introducing new Silk Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative flavors. Not only are they yummy right out of the container, they’re perfect for recipes! Plus this feel-good recipe is much lighter than my grandmother’s recipe and I didn’t sacrifice the taste! Silk is a wonderful way to eat more plant based and less (or no, in our case) dairy. So thankful for this company!
Now let’s make some pudding!
Ingredients For Coconut Banana Pudding
Swing into you local WalMart, or use the app to order, and pick-up the following items:
- 1 Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative
- 1 1/2 cup Silk Original Almondmilk
- 1/2 Banana Creme Pudding Packet
- 1 can Coconut Milk, Chilled Overnight
- 1 cup Coconut
- 3 Bananas
- 40 Wafer Cookies (store brands are often dairy-free)
How To Make Dairy-Free Coconut Banana Pudding
- Mix milk and pudding. Whip until well blended.
- Add Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative and coconut milk cream. When chilled overnight, a can of coconut milk will separate and you’ll get a nice thick cream (healthy fats) on the top of the can. Spoon it off, leaving the rest for another recipe. Whip well.
- Add coconut and fold in.
- Layer cookie, sliced banana, and mixture to the top of the dessert dish, ending with cookies and a sprinkle of coconut.
- Chill for two hours.
