Banana Pudding
















This came out pretty good...the key was the super ripe bananas because they are so sweet. And it's extremely easy to make.

Banana Pudding

12.3oz extra firm silken tofu (I really like mori-nu)
3 extremely ripe bananas
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbl maple syrup (you can add more to make it sweeter but be careful because it can overpower the banana flavor).
1/4 cup dates (soaked 4-6 hours to soften)***

Puree all ingredients together.
I served it with sliced bananas on top and fresh nutmeg grated over it.

***I soaked the dates for 4 hours beforehand to soften them so they pureed better. Put them in a small bowl and fill up with water until it just covers the dates. After 4 hours, take the dates out and pat them dry to get rid of extra moisture.
