Keto/Low Carb Banana Pudding
Around my house, Low Carb Banana pudding is a big deal. I have a couple of family members that really LOVE it, Pretty much everyone likes it. I make Banana pudding other times when I get a chance or whenever my mom comes home on leave. I really love making things that my family appreciates and that what makes them happy.
If I make the stuff, one of two things is going to happen, either I am going to be grumpy or craving banana pudding. To the siren song of that creamy decadent mixture and I will be grumpy as I am going to cave and blow my carb allowance for the next decade.
Until now, before I just never did it, I do not know why I hadn’t thought of making a low carb banana pudding.
So, technically I could have tossed some heavy cream and the sugar-free banana pudding mix together but I wanted it to taste like MY banana pudding and called it a day, with pieces of vanilla cookie in it or at least as close as I could get. Rich, creamy goodness.
