At almost every family gathering, my aunt makes this ridiculous banana pudding that has me day dreaming of it after each function and counting down the days until our next one.
Quite frankly, I don’t have the patience or enough stretchy pants to make her version anytime I please. So what do I do? I make my own banana “pudding” … without the fattening pudding part. Ha. I’m thinking yogurt. Yes, yogurt! Protein packed, thick, creamy (greek) yogurt. It’s not the “pudding” that makes the dessert what it is, it’s the flavors. This skinny, single serving, healthier version, totally screams banana pudding.
Due to the high protein, this makes a great post workout snack. Now that’s something to look forward to during your last rep.
skinny banana “pudding”
Points Per Serving: 2pp
4oz nonfat greek yogurt
1/4-1/2t pure vanilla extract
a few stevia drops to taste
7 animal crackers, crushed
1T rolled oats (optional)
ripe banana, sliced (use 1/2 or the whole thing … 🙂 )
•In a small bowl, mix together greek yogurt, vanilla and stevia to taste.
•Also mix crushed animal crackers and oats together.
Now, it’s time for the layering:
•In a small bowl or parfait cup, layer 1/3 of the sliced banana, 1/2 of the vanilla yogurt, then 1/2 of the animal cracker oat mix.
•Then repeat: banana, yogurt, animal cracker/oats.
•Top with any leftover banana.
