I've done chocolate, vanilla, and tapioca pudding in the microwave so far. This week I moved on to banana. This time, instead of dividing it into cups, I poured it into a graham cracker crust. It should make a nice dessert.
Microwave banana pudding
1 ripe banana
2 cups water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup instant powdered milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
Break banana into four pieces and put in blender. Add water and lemon juice and blend until smooth. Whisk together dry ingredients in microwave-safe bowl. Whisk in banana mixture a little at a time. Add vanilla and coloring.
Microwave 3 minutes. Whisk well. Cook at one-minute intervals, whisking well between each, until pudding is shiny and thick.
Edit: The pie turned out kind of gray, so I added lemon juice to the recipe above. I'll update this post next time I make it and report whether it helped.
