Puddings & Parfaits

August 13th, 2013

chocolate banana puddingThis recipe (of sorts) started after I’d bought a bunch of bananas from Costco, all of which turned ripe at the same time and I ended up with a bunch of over-ripe bananas. So I decided to make pudding. Puddings are delicious food for those with swallowing problems, but then, on the other hand, puddings are delicious for anyone. I made one chocolate pudding from a package, following the package directions, but with an extra “filling” of pureed over-ripe bananas. This is easy enough to do, but it can be even easier if you buy a chocolate pudding and combine it with another to make a parfait. So the second “recipe” calls for combining a chocolate mousse pudding with a store-bought flan, layering them and topping it with whipped cream (from a can). overripe bananas & pudding
