What to do with a ripe banana? I prefer my bananas less ripe, so when I forgot about some and let them sit for a week, I came up with a clever way to get rid of them.
In a blender I mixed one banana with two packages of sugar free instant chocolate pudding and four cups fat free milk. This is like adding starch to starch, but it was a way of sneaking some fruit into the pudding.
At first I could not really call it an improvement. It wasn't bad, but it was different. Howerever, the taste has grown on me a bit.
Maybe I could have done better by adding banana slices to banana flavored pudding instead. I also wonder about the possibility of blending strawberries with chocolates pudding.
