Banana Pudding Parfait – nut free!
Happy International Raw Food Day! As I asked on facebook this morning, what raw foods will you be eating today? I think I'll have to make something extra special today, just not sure what yet...
In my Summertime Banana Cream Pie recipe post I mentioned that I'd soon share a recipe for nut free banana pudding, and here it is! A lot of people do ask for nut free recipes so I like to make them and share for the people who can't have nuts (my best friend is one of them). Plus, sometimes I feel like something different too.
These parfaits are so easy to put together, and really this is more just a pudding recipe layered with a few odds and ends to make a pretty and tasty parfait. The sweetness comes mostly from the banana and coconut butter in this recipe with the addition of a bit of coconut nectar.
Banana Pudding Parfait
As I said in the banana cream pie post, remember to add the turmeric and lemon juice to prevent the pudding from turning grey!
1 cup mashed ripe banana
2 tablespoons coconut nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon juice
few pinches turmeric
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons melted coconut butter
Blend all but the coconut butter until smooth and creamy.
Add the butter and blend again to incorporate.
Layer the pudding with anything of your choice such as:
sprouted dehydrated buckwheat, coconut flakes, bee pollen, dark chocolate chunks, seeds, raw granola.
