2 Ingredient Chocolate Banana Pudding Recipe

Chocolate Banana Pudding

Two ingredients, suckah! Well, OK, three if you include the optional garnish.

But wait. Let me back up and explain. 

If I were to make a list of "Highly Likely Places to Discover a Tasty Dessert", wellness blogs would probably not make the list. Nothing against wellness. But you know, those people who are dedicated to wellness frequently are not dedicated dessert-ers.

But I'll tell the truth, when I saw a recipe for Chocolate Banana Pudding on the Pacific Science Center's Wellbody Blog, I was curious. Especially since they advertised it as having 2 ingredients, and coming together in less than 2 minutes. Well, that sounded easy enough.

So, I grabbed a banana and put it in a blender with some cocoa powder I received as a sample (and P.S., I know my nails look terrible!). Chocolate Banana Pudding

It's OK if the picture makes you titter. I blended til nice and combined and smooth. I put it in a cup. I added a few walnuts on top. And wouldn't you know...this stuff was really quite tasty. So, wellness blog, kudos! I'm happy to spread the word about this delicious and simple dessert which just so happens to be vegan and gluten-free.

But don't be scared off by that, non vegans and gluten-lovers. This is tasty stuff. And you could always add ice cream if it seems too virtuous. 

2 Ingredient Banana Chocolate Pudding

  • 1 banana (ripe)
  • 1 tablespoon to 1/4 cup (whatever amount suits your taste) unsweetened cocoa powder, minimally processed

Mash the ingredients together until smooth. You can do this by hand, or (quicker) in a blender or food processor. If desired, garnish with nuts, fruit, or chocolate chips. Enjoy immediately.

if you chop up the banana and then freeze it, when you blend it up it's almost got an ice-creamy texture/taste. :)

Dear Jess,
Thanks for posting this recipe. I tweaked it just a bit by adding vanilla extract (I bet almond extract will work well too) and some greek yogurt and it was really tasty. I served it with some sliced strawberries and a squirt 'o whip cream and it made a nice dessert. Will keep playing with it (toasted almonds, granola, etc.). It's a really good idea.
Thank you.
