If you’re looking for a more whole-grain option, try our Creamy Brown Rice Pudding and don’t forget to add some banana! For another tasty dish with a more savory touch, we recommend you try this chicken and rice casserole.
The best bananas for this recipe are ripe bananas that are developing some brown spots. Don’t let them sit too long and become too dark, though. In between is just right. After you’ve peeled the banana you can cut it into slices or mash it up.
Feeling adventurous? Add caramelized bananas to your rice pudding. Simply heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 2 teaspoons of brown sugar in a pan and add your sliced banana. When the bananas have cooked and started to caramelize, add them to the rice pudding.
