How Long Does the Pudding Keep?

If you want to make this Chocolate Banana Pudding part of your meal prep, you’re in luck. It can last in the fridge for up to four days in an airtight container. To prevent a dried-out skin from forming, Cameron Fiorenza, BS-NDTR, Culinary and Nutrition Specialist at Openfit, recommends laying plastic wrap directly onto the pudding’s surface to create a seal.


Can I Use Almond or Oat Milk Instead of Rice Milk?

Sure! This Chocolate Banana Pudding can be made with any type of unsweetened nondairy milk you prefer.

Note that different alternative milks contain varying amounts of protein, fat, and natural or added sugar, so the nutritional information of this recipe could change based on the milk you choose.


How Do I Choose a Powdered Peanut Butter?

We love putting peanut butter in everything from puddings to smoothies, and sometimes directly into our mouths. But it totally bums us out that just one tablespoon of peanut butter has a whopping 8 grams of fat and 96 calories. Rude.

That’s why we like powdered peanut butter (aka peanut flour) for this recipe. Made from roasted peanuts that have been pressed to remove most of their oil, then ground into powder, it has about 85% less fat than regular peanut butter.

Some brands add salt and sugar or other sweeteners, so check the ingredients before you buy. Ideally, you will find one that is made from just roasted peanuts, like this one.

If not, Fiorenza suggests looking for a powdered peanut butter that has less than five grams of added sugar per serving, and more than seven grams of protein. He adds, “If it is higher in fiber than other brands, that is great, too!”
