Banana Pudding Parfaits

Banana pudding parfaits are such an easy and delicious dessert. I can’t even explain how fantastic yet simple is to make it.

My kids as well as my husband always ask for me to make extra because it’s that good.

It’s a family favorite especially during summer days when you want something sweet but quick and easy without turning the oven on.

Banana Pudding Parfaits Recipe

The taste of the pudding is fluffy and creamy, and it goes just wonderful with crumps of crunchy wafers and bananas.

Adding chocolate gives you that extra deliciousness and elegance to this classic dessert.

It will impress just about anyone. The best part is that you can make this one a day ahead or in a large bowl or dessert baking dish.

However, I love making banana pudding like parfaits, which are always, in my opinion, more impressive.

Note:

  • You can make your own pudding, any of your choice, or whipped cream topping. I use store-bought to save time, plus I always have a tub of whipped cream in my freezer to beat a quick dessert
  • You may use other fruit, although that would not be a classic banana pudding, and most certainly, we can’t call it banana pudding.
  • Use any cookies that you like. So traditionally, you have you use wafer cookies, but I feel like using ginger snap cookies, Oreos, or even chocolate chip would taste amazing.

Easy and simple classic american dessert with the twist; Banana Pudding Parfaits

Ingredients

  • 20 vanilla wafers, crushed + a few whole
  • 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O French Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding (or sugar free vanilla flavor)
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 cup thawed Whipped Cream Topping
  • 2 banana, cut into 20 slices
  • 2 Oz Chocolate, any on hand. Note: I used dark to shave on top and decorative caramel-filled chocolate for garnish.

Instructions

  1. Crush 20 wafers to form coarse crumbs. Make sure to reserve some for garnish.
  2. Beat pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in about 2 tbsp of thawed whipped cream topping.
  3. Slice a banana, but reserve banana slices for garnish.
  4. Layer each glass/dish with the wafer crumbs, pudding, a tablespoon of whipped cream topping, banana slices, and again with one more layer. Add evenly in 4 dessert glasses/dishes; repeat layers until everything is gone.
  5. Refrigerate 30 min.
  6. Top with remaining wafers, reserved banana slices and chocolate just before serving; garnish with a bit of wafer’s coarse crumbs, chocolate shaving, banana slices, one wafer cookie, and one slice of chocolate of your choice— It’s unnecessary, but it looks so much better.
