Raw Food: Lemon Pudding (Banana Base)

Delicious pudding in minutes, with all natural ingredients! I just started looking into the Raw Food Movement, but I've been trying to avoid highly processed foods for a while now. Standard pudding is on of the worst offenders, where processed foods are concerned. Raw Foodists make pudding using bananas or avocados for base. I've tried both, but I prefer the banana "puddings."

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mash the banana with a fork.
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients with a spoon.
  3. Alternatively, process all ingredients in a food processor until mixed.
  4. Note: Some people use pitted mejool dates instead of honey or another sweetener. I prefer a liquid sweetener, since the dates don't give a very smooth texture in the final product. If you want to use dates, one should be enough in this recipe.

Don't want to put anyone off from trying this but it tasted exactly like what it is. Pureed banana with a tiny hint of lemon.

Good stuff...I have made this a bunch of times...I've used it as a pudding pie filling with a raw nut crust and also like spoons of the stuff in my green smoothies -I have tried all three suggestions as as the sweetener and my favorite is a mix of raw honey and then {the little piggy that i am ;)} I like to add some chopped dates too!!! _I enjoy the lemon and always add extra as well as tons of zest and extra shreds {{I'm a piggy who likes texture in her puddin' ;) }} ...in my most recent experiment with this I juiced a coconut and used a ton of the pulp in with the rest on the lemon-'nana blend then poured the mixture into ice trays (along with coconut cream to run through the juicer again to make raw "soft serve-like" ice cream YAY!:)..,.de-lish - good stuff!!:) **edit to add... always at least double this ;)

I loved this! I started with just the banana and lemon juice and that was very good. I went on to try the coconut and honey, and it was good that way too! Really delicious and easy to make! Thanks! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
