In The Raw® Bloody Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfaits


RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (2)It’s time for Halloween and our family is enjoying our fair share of sweet treats and Halloween fun. Growing up Halloween was always fun time of year. Every year we would have a big Halloween party and enjoy plenty of sweet treats with our friends. I have to say it has in many ways it has inspired me to have my own fun with my kids.

There’s something about Halloween and pudding. We always seem to enjoy more pudding and parfaits around this time of year so I wanted to highlight the pure joy in one of our favorite deserts. Monk Fruit In The Raw® is made from delicious vine-ripened monk fruit, also called luo han guo, it’s the zero-calorie sweetener that tastes like sugar.

In The Raw® wants to inspire families like ours to get in the kitchen and create more of those joyful moments with the pure joy from In The Raw®  products.

Ingredients:

  • Banana cream pudding
  • 3 cups skim milk
  • 1 package raspberries
  • 1 cup Monk Fruit In The Raw®
  • candy eyeballs found at the craft store

When cooking with my girls we like to keep it simple. We enjoy turning simple flavors into flavorful combinations that really work well together. RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (3)

Pudding is so easy just add milk and stir. It’s one of the things my kids like to make the most because it’s so easy to do. Once you’re ready to make the raspberry parfait topping you just add the whole package of raspberries to your sauce pan. RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (4)

Then add the sugar and 3 TBSP of water.

You ill want to slightly crush the berries and cook of a medium heat. RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (6)RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (7)

I found some really great Halloween props at our local craft store. These open test tube beakers are so much fun and make a great container for the pudding. RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (8)

I add the raspberry on top and use a straw to push the raspberry into the pudding. RAW Monk Fruit Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfait (9)

Top with candy eyeballs and fondant fingers and you have a creepy dessert that the whole family will enjoy. Banana Raspberry Pudding Parfaits

    This is adorable! My kids would get such a kick out of it! So would my boyfriend. lol. There’s not a whole lot of desserts that bring me back to childhood because we weren’t allowed a lot of sweets, but I do have some casseroles that bring me back.

    I have seen this in stores and have not tried it yet. We use natural sweeteners for all of our baking so I will try this one next time we need to stock up. I love your pudding cups, they turned out perfect for Halloween.



  12. Mama to 5 BLessings on October 22, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    Love this, I use this in my coffee and other recipes. it is perfect for my diet too!



  13. Jen Temcio @ Dapperhouse on October 22, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    I love the recipe, but what I’m SUPER interested in is an all natural sugar substitute that tastes like sugar. That’s my holy grail.



  14. Stacey - Travel Blogger on October 22, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    How cute. I really love the raspberry mixture for the “blood”, and the finger is a nice touch.



  15. Carlee C on October 22, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    Those are AWESOME! The fingers just add the perfect “touch” to your setup. My kids would love it.



  16. Jennifer on October 22, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    Oh, that is great! I love the floating eyes.



  17. Amber Edwards on October 22, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Ok, that finger part is so gross. but this is also such a fun Halloween treat. Like so cool. What an awesome Halloween recipe!



  18. Scott on October 22, 2014 at 5:42 pm

    I love the beaker idea. The drinks looks just gross enough, but still silly with the eyes! Great job!



  19. Dee Mauser on October 22, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    Those look SO gross yet SO cool. I would totally make these! What a fun way to celebrate my favorite holiday.



  20. Chrissy on October 22, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    Those certainly are creepy! What a fun dessert!



  21. Jenna Wood on October 22, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Haha, super cute, I have those beakers and am planning on using them for something devilish too! We use In The raw for baking all the time!



  22. Tammi @ My Organized Chaos on October 22, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    These are fantastic! They look great and I bet they taste delicious! I love pudding anything this time of year too. Also – we have the same sprinkles set as you! 🙂
