Ultimately I decided to puree them all and mix in some cocoa and other flavorings. Then I thickened it slightly with instant clear gel which is similar to cornstarch but does not require heating.
Today I was greeted with six aging bananas cast aside the fresh new bunch that my hubby brought home yesterday. So my mind raced through all of the possibilities...banana cream pie, banana bread, muffins, pancakes, cookies, smoothies, etc.
Now I am ready to begin the weekend knowing that later tonight when my family wants dessert I can either put a bit of whipped cream on the pudding cups or scoops up a frozen treat. Either way i will be able to indulge in a delicious dessert that will still keep me on track to lose a few more pounds without feeling deprived.
