TMJ Recipe: 2-Minute Chocolate Banana Pudding
Soft foods are essential when the jaw becomes painful from night-time teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Bananas are a staple of a soft foods diet. But what to do with bananas that have ripened too quickly? Make this delicious and healthy pudding with four simple ingredients! Plus all you need is a small bowl, a spoon and a strong stirring motion to make it under 2-minutes!
Plus this no-cook, guilt-free sweet treat is incredible healthy! It’s full of antioxidants from the cocoa. That’s if you use natural cocoa powder that has not been alkalized. Evidence from the literature indicates that natural cocoas are high in flavanols, but when the cocoa is processed with alkali, also known as Dutch processing or Dutching, the flavanols are substantially reduced. Bananas are brimming with potassium, which is needed for the muscles of your body to work. All of the ingredients contribute to the high fiber content, essential for gut health and beneficial for cholesterol and blood sugar control. The nut butters are a sustainable source of healthy fats and plant-based protein! Bon Appetit!
Choose organic ingredients when available:
- 1 very ripe banana
- 1 teaspoon tahini
- 2 teaspoons natural peanut butter
- 1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder
Place all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir rapidly to combine into a pudding texture. Let it rest for a few minutes and devour!
