Wonderful Walnut Vegan Banana Pudding (No Cook)
Prep time
Total time
Bananas serve as a base and give body to many of Denise's smoothie recipes, but they can also work magic in puddings to thicken and bind while simultaneously offering sweetness. Antioxidant-rich walnuts add to the experience. But make sure you buy yours from a store with good turnover, as walnuts tend to go rancid quickly. At home, store them in the refrigerator.
Serves: 4 to 6
  • 1½ cups (150 grams) walnuts, soaked in water to cover overnight and drained
  • 1 ripe banana, broken into pieces
  • ½ cup (120 milliliters) water
  • ¾ cup (90 grams) coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder (see Note below)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients and blend from low to high speed until silky smooth, stopping to scrape the sides of the machine once or twice.
  2. Transfer to a container, cover, and refrigerate for a couple of hours to firm up, then spoon into dessert bowls and serve.
This recipe uses vanilla powder rather than vanilla extract because vanilla powder is alcohol- free and available raw. You can find vanilla powder in some natural food stores and online.
