Lots of coconut packed into a banana-milk creaming pudding. This recipe is simple: blend and heat. Out comes a delicious and healthy coconut snack.

There’s no need to use dairy milk in this recipe. Substitute for almond, cashew, or soy milk. You could even use a coconut drink or coconut milk.

As always, I don’t add any sugar to this recipe. The bananas and the coconut are the only source of sweetness. I use some spices to accent the flavour and find it wonderful as-is. I won’t judge you though if you add a bit of extra sugar.

I happened to have several coconuts around, so I used the raw coconut flesh. Using about half amount of shredded coconut is also okay. I say half, since raw coconut has a higher water content. Mine remained gritty after blending anyway — I suppose if you have a nice blender you can get it perfectly smooth.

It surprised me how good this pudding tastes warm. I like to eat my puddings cold, but the warmth felt good in the middle of winter.
