- Steamy & Creamy Banana-Plantain Pudding, No Added Sugar
Steamy & Creamy Banana-Plantain Pudding, No Added Sugar
Bananas and plantains belong to the same family, and yet are so distinct.
Unlike a banana, the plantain (at the top of the picture) is not creamy, not very sweet, and can’t be eaten raw.
Stodgy and starchy, the plantain is very filling and will add richness to our dessert.
Now, this is important: Use very ripe bananas and plantains.
We all know how to recognize a very ripe banana: It’s soft and may have some black on its skin.
What about plantains?
Plantains are very ripe when their skin is a strong yellow color, mottled with quite a lot of black, and feel relatively tender to the touch. The riper the plantain, the sweeter and less starchy it is -though never as sweet as a banana- and the easier it is to peel.
A tip for peeling a plantain: Cut both ends off, then slit skin lengthwise with 2-3 evenly spaced cuts (Don’t pierce too deep into the flesh), then peel.
Sweetened by: fruit only
Preps: 10-15 minutes
You will need:
2 very ripe bananas, peeled and broken into small chunks
½ very ripe plantain, peeled and cut up into very small chunks
1 tbsp. butter
¼ cup whipping cream
¼ cup milk
How to make it:
1. Melt butter in a saucepan.
2. Add banana and plantain. Stir occasionally until fruit is very tender and caramelized.
3. Add milk and cream. Stir occasionally till smooth. Remove from heat. Serve hot.
Dairy-free: Replace dairy with a non-dairy substitute. Difference in flavor and texture to be expected.
