Sugar and Spice and everything Nice

Pin It!

That’s what Banana Spice Pudding (or yogurt) is made of.

.

“Everything Nice” Banana Spice Pudding
(I call this “yogurt” since it’s healthier than traditional pudding)

Ingredients:

  • 3 level teaspoons agar flakes
  • 1 and 1/3 cup milk of choice (I use almond milk)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, or more if desired
  • a tiny dash salt (1/16th tsp)
  • frozen banana (I only use about 1/4 of a large banana, as I wasn’t looking to make a banana pudding, rather more of a spice yogurt with a hint of banana. For a strong banana flavor, use more banana.)
  • sweetener of choice, to taste

To make the base, measure the milk of choice into a pot. Mix in the agar flakes and let the two sit together for about 5 minutes before you turn on the heat. Slowly bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer until the agar flakes pretty much dissolve (about 5-8 more minutes). Turn off heat and leave for a few minutes to cool, then put in the fridge (uncovered is fine). When it’s cooled and gelled, the fun part begins… Scoop out the agar base into your blending gadget-of-choice (the Magic Bullet is GREAT for this). Add the banana, cinnamon, salt, and sugar (if using), and blend away. Scoop the creamy pudding into a bowl. At this point, I like to put it in the freezer for 10-20ish minutes, because I like it super-cold. But that’s just a personal preference. It’s just as yummy at room temperature or even heated. For more on how to work with agar, check out: “Working with Agar” Tutorial.

Banana Spice Pudding accompanied by a Love Muffin (recipe to come in a future post) and some fake flowers (I’m such a dork!)

Ah, peanut butter, my true love (don’t tell chocolate!).

    I love how when things have banana in them they don’t need extra sugar (for me at least – my mom would be like your mom). Sounds good!

  2. shelby says:

    Awesome recipe! And that love muffins looks delicious. I can’t wait for the recipe.

    I was a HUGE Spice Girls fan. I knew all the dance moves, owned a doll or two (or five), watched the movie everyday, and still know all the words to their songs.
    Okay, I’m done embarassing myself now…

    Oh Katie, that looks so good and creamy. I’ve always feared the agar flakes. Not sure why. I must try them…soon. I love the spice factor with a little banana essence. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    I must be the only veg*n in the world who doesn’t like banana flavored things! That said, this still looks excellent, in theory. 😉 And cheers for admitting to still liking the Spice Girls! Sometimes you just need crazy silly girly dance music in your life.

    Oh, maybe you can try recreate the infamous banana pudding (non veg, by the way) from sugar sweet sunshine – the ones with the wafers in dem 🙂 I miss them SO SO much! Gawd!
