Secret Recipe Club: Thai Banana Pudding

My August assignment was Krista of The Double Dipped Life. Krista is a married mom of three and her blog is full of delicious looking recipes. She has a menu plan tab - yes! I love seeing menu planning because it's such a big part of how I do things in my house - that includes weekly plans where you can download a shopping list and recipes. Krista also does Double Dipped Sweets as a hobby on the side - gourmet popcorn, caramel apples, and dipped treats, oh my!

This month I decided right of the bat that I would do a sweet recipe because I've been hitting up main courses the last few SRC assignments. I noticed that Krista had a whole section devoted to Thai food and was curious about it, as I've never had it. In her Intro to Thai post, she explained that it all started when her husband took her out to Thai restaurant when they were dating. How sweet, right?! So I thought it'd be a good idea to make something that is meaningful to her :)

I decided upon the Thai Banana Pudding - which was the Thai dessert she had on her recipe index. It also looked like a relatively easy recipe and a baby step into Thai cuisine. It cooked quickly and it was so delicious. It was like banana pudding mixed with tapioca pudding. It's a little more runny than regular pudding, but that didn't bother us in the least bit. It was the perfect dessert!

What you need:
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg
  1. Add bananas into a large skillet.
  2. Combine milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Pour milk over bananas.
  4. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Serve topped with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
