Bananas in Orange Sauce
September 23, 2016 12:44pm CST
Did any of you have this as a regular food item when you were in school? We did and it was always my favorite thing!! My mom just got her friendship meal and she got bananas in orange sauce. I haven't thought about it for years, but now I really want some. My friends mom worked in the school cafeteria as a cook---you know, back in the days when everything we had for lunch was made from scratch. I can't remember what it was that the school used to make the orange sauce, but she told us as we became adults to just substitute orange juice instead of milk in instant vanilla pudding. It wasn't quite the same, but it was pretty close. I wonder if I can get my daughter to buy orange juice, bananas and vanilla instant pudding so I can make some for supper tonight. If she can't then I will be making a trip to the store myself!

@celticeagle I think I tried corn starch once without any luck. It comes out good with the instant vanilla pudding. I'm still racking my brain on what it was that the school used. I just remember that it was something I would have had to buy at the specialty foods store.

Around here it is always bananas in strawberry glaze or bananas with strawberries. We do on occasion have mandarin oranges with bananas in them. I am sure a little vanilla pudding added would be tasty. I like that much better than strawberries with bananas.
