I use this for all my pudding recipes from banana to chocolate. I triple the recipe. For chocolate add either one melted oz of bittersweet chocolate or 3tblspn of cocoa blended with 3 tblspn of melted butter. For coconut add 1/2 cup of toasted coconut and exchange 1/2 the vanilla for almond extract. For banana simply use and layer bananas, vanilla wafers, and pudding.
