This is BANANAS...B-A-N-A-N-A-S

This past weekend, some of our Texas family was in town for a wedding! When my Mom found out they were going to be staying with us for the night, she immediately called me and said she would like me to plan make the meal.

When it comes to cooking or baking, I'm always up for a new challenge! Little did I know I would not have complete free reign over this particular meal. I was informed that I needed to make a Gluten-Free meal that was also Atkins approved.

  • A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes gluten, a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye.
  • Atkins diet s a low-carbohydrate diet.

So, once I knew more about the parameters I needed to work within, it was straight to "work." A lean protein is always a good start, add in some greens, a complex carb (not for Atkins dieters) and BOOM, great meal!

My favorite part of the meal is ALWAYS dessert. I mean, who doesn't love dessert?! I am semi-obsessed with bananas, and know Banana Pudding is always a good go-to at family gatherings. It was one of my grandfather's favorites! I found THIS amazing recipe on Pinterest and it was unreal. Three words: Homemade Vanilla Wafers. WHAT?!

Whether you're gluten free by choice or have an intolerance to it, this GF Banana Pudding is amazing (we ALL licked our bowls)! Click HERE for the recipe!
