Guilty Pleasure: Southern Banana Pudding

Hi! My name is Jen Karalfa. I'm a member of Team 7 and the owner of Romancing the Book ( I've struggled with my weight my whole life because I have this crazy aversion to vegetables and a ridiculous sweet tooth. I also hate to cook. It's partically due to my picky eating habits, but it's also hard to get motivated to cook for one and not end up with tons of leftovers.
So, when I was asked to come up with a recipe... well, this was a tough assignment because I don't cook. In my moment of need, I turned to SparkPeople for some inspiration. And because I have a sweet tooth, I decided to share a dessert recipe with y'all. It's a low-fat version of an old classic:
