Healthy Dessert: Walnut Banana Pudding

Bananas serve as a base and give body to many Organic Avenue smoothies; similarly they can work their magic in puddings to thicken and bind, while adding something sweet.

Ingredients:

•   1½ cup walnuts, soaked in water overnight, then drained
•   1 ripe banana, broken into pieces
•   ½ cup water
•   ¾ cup coconut sugar
•   1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
•   ½ teaspoon vanilla powder (see note below)
•   ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
•   ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions:

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.

3.   Spoon into dessert bowls and serve.

*Note: We use vanilla powder rather than vanilla extract because vanilla powder is alcohol- free and available in its raw state; you can find it in some natural food stores and online.
