Silken Banana Pudding
So incredibly simple and yet so delicious. I had banana pudding on my mind, the kind with vanilla wafers. I improvised.
1 package extra firm silken tofu
2 bananas [The riper the more banana flavor.]

agave syrup, to taste
firm ripe bananas
Mix all ingredients in a food processor until well mixed and creamy. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
I broke out the kitchen torch to caramelize the sugar on fresh banana slices. I’m sure you could achieve the same end by placing lightly-sugared banana slices under the broiler on a sheet pan. I took it a step further and served it all over a vegan vanilla sugar cookie.

All I have to say right now is that I truly feel sorry for anyone with a banana allergy! I can’t wait to test my creativity with variations of this.
