The other day I was in Trader Joe’s and saw unsweetened, unsulphured, dried strawberries. I instantly wanted to concoct a dairy free pudding of some sort. Don’t ask me why dried strawberries made me think of pudding! But I’m so glad they did, because the resulting recipe was a big hit with my family.
This pudding is full of healthy fat and is gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, and both vegan and paleo. And it’s super simple. Just throw all the ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor.
The dried strawberries add a beautiful pink color and the bananas provide the sweetness in this recipe. Poured into decorative glasses, this pudding makes a beautiful presentation for guests (or for yourself and family 🙂 ). It’s the perfect recipe to make for a loved-one this Valentine’s Day.
