In our house a Sunday is the only day we have a pudding after dinner and as we were having a filling stew today, I opted for something a little lighter. This was not only super tasty but really light and lower in calories as I used low fat versions. If you love banana’s and custard you will like this. It is also so quick to make, just 10 minutes to prepare with 30 minutes chilling time.
2 Bananas (keep a few slices to serve)
1 x 400g Tin of Low Fat Custard
1 x 150ml Double Light Cream
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence
Empty custard into a large mixing bowl and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Mash the bananas with a fork and add to the custard, crumble in 1 1/2 of flake and mix through to combine
Add 1 tsp vanilla essence to the cream and whisk up until thick, gently fold cream into the custard mix.
Spoon custard into serving dishes and top with a couple slices of banana and crumbled flake.
Note: If you have custard powder, put 2 tbsp of powder and 2 tbsp of caster sugar into a pan, add a little milk and stir to a paste, add the remaining milk (about 400ml) and bring to a gentle boil, stir continually until custard thickens. Remove from heat, place a piece of cling film over custard to prevent a skin forming and allow to cool then proceed as above.
So, I am seeing a lot of different recipes for Chia Seed Puddings, I use Chia Seeds (Superfood) in my porridge for my breakfast but never though about puddings until now, my curiosity got the better of me. I would have usually used Cocoa Powder with this but as I never had any I used one of my Actidiet Powders (I am currently doing a 7 Day Shred and Cleanse for my friends business, check it out http://www.actidiet.co.uk/me/julie-pringle/).
250ml of Almond Milk
1 Sachet of Actidiet powder (I used chocolate) or 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
4 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
Mix the powder with the Almond Milk
Add in the Chia Seeds and Maple Syrup and mix through
Pour into serving bowls and refrigerate overnight
Well, to my delight it tasted absolutely heavenly…….love this!
