A favorite non-dairy food is my Coconut Blueberry Pudding. For more variety, I switched to raspberries and made this delicious Raspberry Coconut Pudding.
I developed this series of flavored coconut pudding recipes serendipitously when I accidentally left a shake in the refrigerator overnight. I was excited to see how thick and creamy it became.
A perfect dairy-free comfort food!
When you are dairy-free it is hard to satisfy that urge for something creamy and cold.
I am most excited about this simple recipe because it does not contain any additives or added sweeteners. Commercial brands of pudding and custard have all kinds of artificial sweeteners,colors and other additives (see the 2 Common Food Additives That Damage Your Gut Lining).
The well ripened bananas are totally sufficient as sweeteners. However, if you find it needs a little more, feel free to add a little honey or other natural sweetener of your choice.
Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, which is known for being antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Lauric and palmitic fatty acids are found in mother’s breast milk and help protect the infant against pathogens. Studies have shown the antimicrobial benefits of coconut oil.
Coconut oil has a medium smoke point which makes it really good for pan sauteing and baking. It tastes delicious in baked goods and is great to add to shakes and other beverages.

Creamy non-dairy pudding
If you are in the beginning stages of a healing diet, you may want to pass the raspberries through a sieve in order to remove the seeds. The seeds are tiny, but may be an issue for some. This will make the raspberries more watery, but the recipe will still work. Sometimes I pass half the raspberries through a sieve just to remove some of the seeds.
