Spring is here, that means its time to shed those sweaters for cute sundresses. I am also hoping to shed some pounds too by getting fit and eating healthier. An easy way to cut those calories is to swap out ingredients for lighter options. I still have a sweet tooth so I decided to recreate a family favorite recipe and swap out the added sugar for SPLENDA® Sweetener. Here is our Lightened Coconut Banana Pudding Recipe!
Coconut Banana Pudding Recipe
- ¼ c Splenda
- ⅓ cup cornstarch
- 3 cups coconut milk
- 3 T margarine
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- box of vanilla wafers
- 4 ripe bananas, sliced
- Wisk together Splenda, salt and cornstarch in a saucepan. Slowly whisk in milk and bring to a boil whisking constantly. Simmer and whisk until it thickens. Remove from heat and add vanilla and margarine. Cool.
- Keep layering vanilla wafers, pudding, and bananas to fill sundae cups. Chill overnight.
- Add crumbled vanilla wafers and put a cherry on top.
Miss B loves to use dip her vanilla wafers into the Coconut Banana Pudding! YUM!
