Redefining 'instant' pudding.

Some days just call for a warm, creamy dessert. However, most of those days also call for loafing on the couch with a good book and not slaving over a hot stove. What to do, what to do...

Instant banana pudding of course!

This healthy, naturally sweet treat is perfect for dessert, a snack, or even breakfast! Just what I needed tonight. I have a ton of homework and nearly every dish I own is dirty, so I needed something quick. Here's what to do:

Smush a banana in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute, or until melted. That's it.

Top with peanut butter, chocolate chips, mix in cocoa powder, do whatever you want. I topped mine with chocolate chips, dates (I love dates; they taste like caramel!) and homemade "mounds bar" filling. (Great way to use up pulp from making almond milk)

I'd better hop to that homework. Have a great Monday!



  1. yum, banana pudding!

    yuck, homework!=)

    i love dates too. i learned from other bloggers to eat them with nuts inside. i'm not a huge fan of brazil nuts plain but they're great inside dates!

  2. I actually stuffed some chocolate chips inside them the other day. Yummy in my tummy!

  3. MMMMM...I love dates with almonds inside and cashews are delish!!! Very cute blog McKella! Thanks for checking out Yoga Addicted!!!!

  4. drop me a comment if you get a post up later re the tofu :)

  5. Haha, you seem to be reading my mind. I've been on a pudding bender the last couple weeks, I don't know why!
