Banana Coconut Pudding or Pie Filling


Rich and creamy, with an excellent, almost butterscotch-like flavor. Fairly healthy for a sweet treat. I make it gluten- and refined sugar-free, sweetening with coconut sugar.

  • 6 cups unsweetened vanilla-flavored almond milk

  • 6 large egg yolks

  • cup coconut sugar

  • ½ cup cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 cup toasted unsweetened shredded coconut

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla extract

  • 3 bananas, sliced


  1. Mix almond milk, egg yolks, coconut sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a large saucepan and, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Cook and stir almond milk mixture until it thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir shredded coconut, butter, and vanilla extract into milk mixture. Remove saucepan from heat and allow pudding to cool to room temperature.

  2. Divide sliced bananas between 8 serving bowls and pour pudding over top.

Cook's Notes:

If after cooking this pudding does not thicken to your liking, there's an easy fix. Simply stir in about 1/2 cup chia seeds. It will thicken fast, and continue to the longer it sits in the

Margarine can be substituted for butter if desired.

Try topping pudding with nutmeg, toasted coconut, crumbled graham crackers, or a non-dairy topping.

If desired, you can crumble graham crackers in bowls before serving.
