I came across my inspiration for this dessert on One Happy Table’s blog. I changed the milk to So Delicious unsweetened coconut and used maple syrup to sweeten it. I made two batches, the first I made with the bananas mashed, the second I used our Vitamix blender to make it velvety smooth before cooking. Either way works, although being smooth is a nice touch. The Toddler enjoyed both versions, to the point he had his face stuck in the bowl licking it out!
