Vanilla Banana Pudding



Believe it or not, this is a low-cal, delicious dessert that my children (and husband) absolutely loved!!! One serving is about 300 calories and 2 g of fiber.

Vanilla Banana Pudding
2 cups low fat milk
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar plus one teaspoon
3 Tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp vanilla
24 Vanilla wafer cookies
3 large, ripe bananas, sliced
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

In medium bowl, whisk milk and eggs.  In a medium saucepan, whisk 1/3 cup sugar and cornstarch until well combined.  Gradually add the milk & egg mixture, whisking until smooth.  Turn the heat to medium and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens and boils, about 6 minutes.  Boil for one minute.  Stir in the vanilla and remove from heat.  Chill for 30 minutes.

Place a layer of vanilla wagers on the bottom of a 1 1/2 quart  bowl or casserole dish.  Layer with one third of the banana slices.  Top with one third of the pudding.  Repeat.  Chill.

Before serving: whip the cream with an electric mixer.  Add the remaining 1 tsp sugar and coninue to beat until soft peaks form.  Top pudding with whipped cream and crumble a few wafers on top as garnish.  Makes about 6 one-cup servings.
