Banana Pudding

I miss old fashion banana pudding....you know the kind with the vanilla wafers and bananas. Has anyone found a good LC substitution? Thanks

The only kind I know of is the instant pudding that is sugar free. They do have banana cream in the sugar free. You could also use s/f vanilla and add some banana extract or if you can afford the carbs, you could thinly slice about 1/3 of a banana into it.

Thanks, I know it is a far stretch. It might just be one of those things I allow myself to have rarely. I was just curious to the responses.

I think Kevin has a recipe for vanilla wafers somewhere.. and you could also use Banana Davinci's if you wanted to with vanilla pudding or the banana SF packaged stuff..
You could put a piece or two of real banana on each serving and it wouldn't hurt you
too badly.

Thanks Carolyn! I will look and see. Right now I am helping the immediate craving with cream cheese, heavy cream, and banana davinci's (all legal).

Maybe even ricotta cheese and davinci's would be good or a combination with cream cheese and cream. I've been searching online, but not much luck for banana pudding. If I find anything low carb, I'll post it.

la nouba makes a coffee waffle cookie that tastes exactly like a vanilla wafer. that and some sf banana pudding would be great together.. the coffee waffle doesn't taste like coffee, it's just the name of the cookie. netrition carries them and a couple of different cookies.

I don't think it has any. The banana "extract" I have is imitation--just water, alcohol and flavoring. I also have a banana creme oil for LorAnn which doesn't have any--it's very concentrated so you only use a tiny amount. If you find a real extract it's probably just going to be water, alcohol and banana oil so I wouldn't worry about it.

After reading this thread yesterday, I took one cup of almond breeze and one cup of heavy cream and a box of s/f banana cream instant pudding and mixed it up. All I can say is yum-o. I usually use hood's milk, but I was out. I think I like it better with the cream and almond breeze. Now I'm thinking I need to mix up some more and try that vanilla wafer cookie recipe too. Ohhh...so many goodies, so little time.

What about making a panna cotta with banana extract? The consistency and texture would be perfect.

I don't know if panna cotta would work that well for banana pudding. Because it is liquid until it sets up, it would turn the vanilla wafers to mush unless you added them later. Panna cotta is kind of like a cross between pudding and jello, but more like jello.
