Help with Banana Pudding!
I'm new to this board and have been reading, reading, reading! It's really fantastic and can't believe how helpful everyone is here.
I know this might already have been asked but can't seem to find anything so thought I would ask. (or just point me in the right direction and I'll go take a look)
I would really love to be able to make a 'good' (simple?) low carb banana pudding....has anyone managed to do this and if so would you share your recipe? I would soooo appreciate it. My hubby loves this and I'd like to be able to eat a little of it too.

I haven't made a banana pudding in a long time but when I did I used a real banana sliced very thin. I think I used SF Jello pudding, I prefer vanilla because banana flavoring can taste really fake, and folded in a cup of heavy whipping cream that had been whipped. You can lower carb banana pudding but not totally decarb it.
Here is the recipe I used for vanilla wafers that CarolynF used in her Prince William cake. These work great. I make mine in a 28-well silicone macaron pan and they look just like vanilla wafers.
VANILLA ALMOND COOKIES
1/2 cup vanilla whey
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
2 Tbs. sweetener
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 TBS cream or lowcarb milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together the whey, almond flour, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers until the butter lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the vanilla, milk and sweetener to form a stiff dough.
With a cookie scoop or teaspoon, form cookies into balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Press down the balls into a cookie shape and bake for 9 minutes or so until done. Place cookies on rack to cool.

I've used the SF banana pudding and it's actually pretty good. You can make one banana go a LONG way if, like Pam says, you slice it VERY thinly.
