Banana Pudding

I’m certain that if you were to ask a room full of people if they’ve eaten banana pudding before, they would answer yes. Bananas are an enjoyable fruit, one of my favorite breakfast snacks and a common flavor addition for many goodies such as popsicles, bread, and candy. For the people that don’t like bananas, you need to check yourself.

Banana pudding is a simple snack to make, It requires no effort and is a great alternative to cake or ice cream for an after dinner treat. Kids will most likely enjoy banana pudding, plus its served cold so you can enjoy it outdoors this summer. This recipe really doesn’t need a post but it’s quite good, I just couldn’t resist, You will thank me later.

For my recipe I used banana flavored pudding, you can substitute vanilla or even chocolate if you wanted to.

You will need:

-1 Package of banana pudding mix

-2 Cups Milk

-3 Each Bananas, peeled and sliced

-1 Box vanilla wafers

-Whipped cream (see recipe below, or use store bought)

Whipped cream:

-1 8oz carton Heavy cream

-1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

-1 Teaspoon Almond extract (optional)

-4 Tablespoons Powder sugar (optional. I didn’t use sugar this time, pudding mix is sweet enough you won’t be able to tell the whipped cream isn’t sweetened.)

Method of Prep:

-In a medium bowl, add pudding mix and whisk in milk according to directions on box. Let sit for 5 minutes until ready.

-While waiting, combine in bowl of a stand mixer components to make whipped cream. Add in all ingredients and using the whisk attachment on medium high speed, whip until stiff medium peaks show. Approximately 5 minutes.

-In a bowl that you plan to serve the pudding in, begin by adding a small amount of pudding to cover the bottom. Top with a handful of bananas, and vanilla wafer crumbles.

-For the next layer, spread whipped cream just enough to cover pudding. top with vanilla wafers and more cookie crumbles.

-Repeat those two steps until you run out of pudding. The last layer should be the pudding. Garnish with bananas and wafer crumbles.

Enjoy!
