Banana Pudding


4 egg yolks

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups full fat coconut milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 ripe banana, sliced

Walnuts (optional)



Whisk together the egg yolks, honey, and arrowroot powder in a medium glass bowl. Set aside.

Heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Slowly pour the coconut milk into the egg mix, whisking constantly. Transfer the entire mixture back into the saucepan and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir regularly until thickened, making sure it does not boil.

Transfer the mixture into a large bowl and whisk in the vanilla and the mashed bananas. Chill for one hour.

To serve, spoon the pudding into a glass. Top with sliced banana and walnuts, if desired. Serve immediately!
