Sugar free Coconut banana pudding

With all the talk of celebrities and type 2 diabetes I thought I would share a family favorite dessert. For my Type 2 sweet tooth I needed something luscious. By replacing milk and sugar I reduce the carb content massively without any one noticing. I have even found sugar-free vanilla wafers!

You can serve this all the time and no one will ever know you have trimmed it down!
