Introduction

Hey there, my lovely friends! Today, I want to share with you a special recipe that will satisfy all your cravings without compromising your health. We all know how hard it can be to resist that sweet tooth, especially if you’re watching your sugar intake. But fear not! I’ve got a fantastic recipe for a light and delicious banana pudding that will blow your mind. So let’s get started!

A Guilt-Free Dessert

Creating the Perfect Custard

To achieve that delightful banana pudding taste without the guilt, we’ll be using some clever substitutions. Start by mixing 1 cup of monk fruit sweetener (a great substitute for sugar) with 3 tablespoons of corn starch. Whisk them together until well combined. Now, slowly add 3 cups of skim milk, whisking continuously. You can also use whole milk or lower-fat options like 2% or 1%, depending on your preference. Cooking this mixture on a double boiler will give you the best results.

Tempering the Eggs

While the custard thickens, beat 4 egg yolks in a separate bowl. Once the custard is ready, slowly add a small amount of the hot custard to the beaten eggs. This process, called tempering, ensures that the eggs don’t scramble when added to the hot mixture. Now, combine the tempered eggs with the custard, stirring gently. Cook for a few more minutes until the yolks are fully cooked, and the custard has a beautiful pale yellow color.

The Finishing Touches

Remove the custard from the heat and add a half stick of butter and a teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. Let the mixture cool before proceeding to the next step. In the meantime, slice your bananas and sprinkle them with a little lemon juice to prevent browning.

Assembling the Banana Pudding

Now comes the fun part! Start by layering the bottom of your dish with a thin layer of the custard. Next, arrange a layer of sugar-free shortbread cookies on top of the custard. Repeat this process until you have used up all the custard and cookies. If you prefer, you can add more layers of sliced bananas between the cookie layers. It all depends on the size of your dish and your personal taste preferences.

Final Flourishes

At this point, you can choose to top your banana pudding with a meringue, some frozen topping, or fresh whipped cream. If you opt for whipped cream, sweeten it with monk fruit sweetener for that extra touch of goodness. Sprinkle some fresh mint leaves on top for a burst of freshness, and voila! Your light and delicious banana pudding is ready to be savored.

Conclusion

So there you have it, my friends! A low-calorie and guilt-free version of the classic banana pudding that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Whether you’re managing your sugar intake or simply looking for a healthier dessert option, this recipe will not disappoint. Enjoy the creamy custard, the sweet bananas, and the delightful crunch of those sugar-free shortbread cookies.
