This carob banana pudding is so simple and fast to make. It is a delicious dessert filled with the health benefits of carob, banana and peanut butter.
Carob is a sweet-tasting food that has a chocolate type flavour but is not chocolate. For those who cannot eat chocolate, this is a healthy alternative. I love carob anything.
Bananas are healthy for you and that’s a good thing since they are the most popular fruit in North America. Everyone loves bananas. There are more songs, jokes, and silliness with this food than with any other plant on earth. Bananas are a healthy superfood!
No food is perfect, though; there are some cautions with peanuts. Hopefully, you are not one of the 1% that is highly allergic to peanuts.
Make sure you are using good peanut butter. Read the label. Natural, old-fashioned organic peanut butter with no hydrogenated fats and sugar is the best. Choose peanut butter that contains only peanuts and salt. This kind is full of peanut flavor and doesn’t contain additives and is better for the environment too. Refrigerate it and turn it upside down in the fridge so the peanut oils and solids can re-mix.
This is good peanut butter with no unhealthy additives and is organic too: Smucker’s Organic Creamy Peanut Butter
I am a big fan of chunky peanut butter cause I like the crunch: Smucker’s Organic Natural Peanut Butter-chunky which is what I used in this carob banana pudding.
