Creamy Vanilla Strawberries Dessert Vegan Recipe

Another sweet, original addition to our dessert collection – try the Creamy Vanilla Strawberries Dessert recipe, vegan style.

Ingredients:

  • 3 large bananas
  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 tsp of sugar-free vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup of fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup of coconut whipped dessert topping

Preparation:

First you have to prepare the basic pudding layer. In a medium sized saucepan bring 2 cups of almond milk to boil.

You can use some other milk if you like. The taste will be the same. I have tried this recipe with soy milk and it was perfect.

Meanwhile, peel and cut a banana into thin slices. Add banana slices, vanilla extract and cinnamon to a saucepan. You can add some water if necessary.

Cook for about 10 minutes over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Add cornstarch and cook for another  2 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into pudding bowls.

Allow it to cool for a while. Top with fresh fruits and whipped dessert topping.

Enjoy your Creamy Vanilla Strawberries Dessert!
