We all have a sweet tooth to some degree. Unfortunately, most desserts are filled with processed sugar and have zero nutrients. These little puddings use natural sugar from coconuts and bananas, along with a little coconut nectar to sweeten. The texture also comes from the fruits themselves, so no need for eggs, dairy or flour! They are pretty high in nutrients, electrolytes, and potassium, so you will not feel as guilty eating them. Oh, and they are so tasty!

I used coconut nectar, as it is lower in fructose than the other sweeteners and fairly low on the glycemic index. It also has more nutrients than most sweeteners, so it is my sweetener of choice. But you can replace it with maple syrup or agave nectar if you cannot find Coconut nectar.



3 ripe bananas
2 cups Thai coconut "meat" (from about 2 Thai coconuts)
1/2 cup unsweetened natural peanut butter
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut nectar
1/2 tsp. vanilla essence


Put all the ingredients in a high speed blender and mix until very smooth.
Serve into individual bowls and chill in the fridge for one hour before serving.
*If you do not have a high speed blender such as a Vitamix, it might leave some small chunks so you might have to strain it before pouring it into the individual bowls.

Serves 4 large or 8 small individual bowls

Bon appetit!
