Tropical Pudding

What started out as my Homemade Banana Pudding, turned into something so delicious that I may never make Banana Pudding again!  This Tropical Pudding was so delicious, that I could hardly keep myself from devouring it all!  Since I had bought organic bananas at Aldi the other day, that still had not ripened much more than they were when I bought them, I had to change direction on dessert.  My daughter and I were both wanting something sweet so I looked in the cabinets and came up with this recipe.  While it was delicious as it is, next time I make it, I would definitely add some bananas if I had some that were ripe.  Hope you like this recipe!  It is a great summer treat your whole family will love.
