Almond Butter Banana Pudding

I am going to keep this post short, mainly because I don’t have a lot of time to type.  I get on an airplane tomorrow to fly to Washington DC for the Beyond Bacon release party with Paleo Parents.  Normally that wouldn’t be a good reason not to type a lot, except I haven’t done laundry or packed yet.  Oops, procrastination and eating bacon took a too much precedence today.  I came up with a solution.  I am cooking bacon while I type so I can put the bacon in a ziploc and have it on my flight to the east coast tomorrow.  I can’t wait to see how TSA reacts to bacon coming through the conveyor.  If they try and steal it, I may have to get violent.  Then again, once everyone on the plane smells my bacon I may have to fend them off too.  Good thing Paleo keeps me strong.

So enough blabbing about my bacon escapades through an airport.  This recipe was actually created while I was working on my Bacon Banana Cream pie and I loved the way this came out.  I also always have a plethora of bananas on hand since I make my Banana Bread at least once a week so I have been whipping this up for a quick snack on the go.  If I spend anymore time trying to type something witty I am not going to make it to the airport on time tomorrow.  I hope you enjoy this recipe and I look forward to reading your comments.  Have a great day.

  1. “store any extra in the fridge for up to 3 days” I was lucky it lasted 30 minutes in my house! My son couldn’t get to it fast enough! We got 3, 1 cup servings out of it, using 2 medium bananas. It was insanely delicious. Thank you for ALWAYS giving us something good to eat!

  2. This was absolutely delicious and so easy! I will make this again and again! Thanks! !

  3. While I’ve been a subscriber to your Facebook and emails for some time, I’ve only recently decided to take the paleo plunge this week, after being prescribed 1600mg of ibuprofen a day following a car accident in October. Your balsamic beef roast is simmering away in my crockpot, but craving something sweet, I decided to get a jump on dessert and try a sample and omg you are some kind of evil genius for creating this! I added a pinch of cinnamon, but that’s just me :)

    Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  4. This couldn’t be any easier and it was SO good! I didn’t add the honey and it was plenty sweet enough – and my banana wasn’t even brown. My boyfriend and non-paleo best friend also loved it. Thanks!

    Just made this. It is frickin amazing!! I didn’t add the honey and it was still so sweet from the banana.
    Thank you!!

  6. Looks delish! I’m allergic to both bananas and coconut, so do you think it could work with pumpkin puree and almond milk?

  7. hey, you should try my “chocado” :) it´s a chocolatey pudding made with avocado and it´s super-easy!

  8. I just had this for desert after a fantastic meal of pulled pork and beasty barbecue sauce. All round awesomeness!

  9. Genius! Another awesome recipe. I left out the almond butter and added cocoa, it made an amazing chocolate pudding.

  10. These are so cute! I love the darker photography, too, I’ve got to play around with that myself sometime, it looks fun! :)

  11. I make my own coconut milk and have some of the cream from the top in the freezer. About how much cream so you use to make this recipe?


  12. Another winner!!
    Made this the other day after my boyfriend requested banana pudding. Since he’s dairy free and eats whatever I make, I figured a paleo version would satisfy his request and, boy did it ever!
    He devoured it and I passed along the recipe to him so he can make it himself (and everyone else in the house, even a paleo-naysayer, asked permission to try a bite)

    Keep all the delicious recipes a’comin!

  13. Awesome. Freaking Awesome Marine. Made this as dessert for me & my wife & it was freaking awesome.
    Semper Fi.

  14. Would this taste good using coconut butter instead of the almond butter?

  15. sara @ Fitcupcaker says:

    I love almond butter and last night I made a great dessert with it..Ill add this to the list, yum!

  16. Mine turned out a little watery, but I think it may have been the generic Thai brand of coconut milk that I used. Flavors were AMAZING though! I stuck a batch in the freezer in hopes of a quick ice cream…

  17. kmaxnerd says:

    I made this and it was amazing. Then I turned some leftovers into pancakes! Added 2 eggs, 4 tbsp coconut flour, 1/2 tsp each baking soda and baking powder, and some shredded coconut. They were awesome! Thanks for all your hard work.

  18. You’re killing me with all these desserts! As soon as you post one I feel like I need to make it right now! Looks awesome… as usual :)

  19. YUM! Guess what I am doing for desert!

  20. Love anything cold and creamy. This one has my name on it. Will have to save my fruit serving for this one….

  21. Whats not to love? Bananas, Almond Butter, Coconut Cream? SOLD! I think I will freeze some as well for a cold refreshing snack!

  22. Hmmm – I’m on 21DSD right now & thinking that this may be doable sans the honey & using a green-tipped banana instead. Whatcha think? Or, perhaps I save this for later in the month! :)

  23. You’re crackin’ me up…”Store any extra…” Yeah, right!! I am soooo making this!

  24. I have hundreds of bananas in my freezer, so I’ll have a go at this! It seems very much like a smoothie, maybe if you added gelatine to make it more pudding-y? :)

  25. This would be good with strawberries or pineapple. I don’t like the taste of ripe bananas.
