Tips & tricks for vegan banana pudding
Be sure to use ripe bananas for this recipe. Then you want to mash them with a fork. You should work out large lumps so that your pudding has a nice creamy texture.
The pudding needs to be stirred frequently on the stove. If you don't, the pudding can burn to the bottom of the pot and ruin your dessert.
If you really don't want any lumps, you can use a food processor to pulse the banana mixture to make your pudding ultra creamy.
Variations on vegan banana pudding
I used maple syrup for this recipe. However, if you want, you can replace the syrup with an artificial sweetener to reduce some of the sugar content.
Turmeric is optional, but it will add a nice color to your pudding. You can also use yellow food coloring to give your pudding a yellowish color.
With this vegan banana pudding you can prepare delicious parfaits. Use a vegan-friendly cookie or graham cracker for the first layer of your parfait. Then add a layer of pudding and a layer of vegan whipped cream!
Frequently asked questions about vegan banana pudding
Is coconut cream the same as coconut milk?
Coconut cream and coconut milk are not the same, so make sure you buy canned coconut cream. Coconut cream is ultra thick and gives the banana pudding its rich taste and creamy texture.
What is the cornstarch doing in this recipe?
The cornstarch in this recipe will help thicken the pudding while it cooks on the stove. Without cornstarch, your pudding would take a lot longer to reach the consistency you want.
How can I make this pudding less sweet?
If you want to tone down the sweetness of this pudding, just use less syrup. Just measure out half the amount given in the recipe. Then you can add more syrup if you want the dish to be a little sweeter.
How should I store banana pudding?
Banana pudding must be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Serve the pudding cold and enjoy with your favorite garnish – whipped cream, cherry, freshly cut bananas, etc.
