Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Chilling time: 2 hours Total time: 2 hours 25 minutes Servings: 6
- 3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk of your choice)
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/3 cup maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener of your choice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Vegan vanilla wafers or cookies of your choice, for layering
- Optional toppings: sliced bananas, crushed cookies, coconut whipped cream
- In a medium-sized saucepan, mash 2 bananas with a fork until smooth.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk and cornstarch until the cornstarch is fully dissolved.
- Add the almond milk mixture, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt to the mashed bananas in the saucepan. Whisk until well combined.
- Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, until it thickens and comes to a gentle boil. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
- Once the pudding has thickened, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
- In individual serving bowls or a larger dish, layer the vegan vanilla wafers (or cookies of your choice), sliced bananas, and the cooled pudding. Repeat the layers until you run out of ingredients, ending with a layer of pudding on top.
- Cover the dish(es) with plastic wrap, ensuring the wrap touches the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until the pudding is well chilled and set.
- Before serving, you can garnish with additional sliced bananas, crushed cookies, or a dollop of coconut whipped cream if desired.
- Enjoy the vegan banana pudding chilled and savor each spoonful of this delightful dairy-free treat.
