A Twist on Tradition

You may be familiar with the famous “not yo mama’s banana pudding” recipe. It’s rich, creamy, and oh-so-delicious. But, let me tell you a little secret – I’ve come up with a way to make it lighter without compromising on taste.

Let’s Get Cooking

We’ll start by making our own pudding from scratch, using just a few simple ingredients. In a small saucepan, whisk together two and a half cups of milk and a quarter cup of sugar. Warm it over low heat, just until it simmers.

While the milk mixture warms up, let’s prepare the rest of our pudding. In a separate bowl, whisk together a half cup of sugar, cornstarch, a pinch of salt, and two eggs. Once the mixture is smooth, slowly pour in the warm milk, whisking constantly.

Next, return the mixture to the saucepan and simmer it until it thickens. Once it reaches the right consistency, remove it from the heat and stir in a tablespoon of butter and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Let it cool to room temperature before chilling in the fridge.

Layer by Layer

Now comes the fun part – assembling our banana pudding. Start by slicing some fresh bananas and tossing them with a bit of Fruit Fresh to prevent browning. In a dish, layer the homemade pudding, Nilla wafers, and the banana slices.

Repeat the layers until your dish is full. Top it off with a generous dollop of freshly whipped cream, spreading it evenly over the pudding. And voila, your lighter, delicious banana pudding is ready to be enjoyed!

A Little Something Extra

If you want to add a personal touch, garnish your banana pudding with some fresh mint leaves from the garden. It adds a refreshing touch and makes for a beautiful presentation.

Try it and Compare

I encourage you to try this lightened-up version alongside the traditional recipe. See how they stack up against each other. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the taste and texture of this lighter version.

So, grab a spoon, dig in, and savor the flavors of this delightful banana pudding. For more recipe requests and lighter versions of your favorite dishes, let us know. Stay tuned for more exciting recipes, and until then, happy cooking!
