Banana Pudding Soap Recipe

The Natures Garden staff is at it again, and this week Afshan (our graphic artist) joined our Staff Project Challenge.  Her project is called Banana Pudding Soap.  afshan pic

Hi everyone! my name is Afshan. I’m a web designer by profession and really love what I do. I’ve been working for Natures Garden for the past 3yrs and although I work offshore from my country Pakistan and haven’t met the staff , the CEO Deborah and the company I feel like I’m a part of Natures Garden too. I felt greatly honored when Deborah asked me to do the Staff Challenge and here I am with my first soap ever, a Banana Pudding Soap.banana pudding soap

In my spare time I like to do baking, sketching and photography. I just love animals and have kept a goat, chickens, cats, sheep and a turtle as pets at different times. My dream is to one day be on board the National Geographic Explorer Tour and see the wildlife up at the North Pole plus the Aurora Borealis. I can speak 3 languages. I’m a Libran and like balance and organization in my life. I love watching TV Series, these days I’m hooked to Homeland. My purpose in life is to be good human being and be useful to as many people as possible. My life motto is “I can do it” and I believe that even a little bit of kindness never goes unrewarded.homemade banana pudding recipe

Afshan was inspired to make banana pudding soap after she read the Banana Pudding Recipe Deborah posted on her facebook page.  Banana pudding is one of Deborah’s family favorites, and Afshan had never eaten banana pudding.  So, in addition to sending Afshan everything she would need to make the banana pudding soap, Deborah also sent her the ingredients not found in Pakistan that she would need to make edible banana pudding.  Afshan loved making the soap, and she said that her family loved eating the real banana pudding!  You can find Deborah’s Edible Banana Pudding Recipe Here.  Hope you enjoy it!
