Remember when I did those cute Banana Pudding Bites? Well, I decided to take another go at another quick banana pudding dessert, and this time I made individual banana pudding parfaits. These are by no means traditional banana pudding desserts, but they are quick and still very yummy! Oh, and they're cute to boot! Perfect for when you're craving something sweet, but don't wanna bake anything. Enjoy!
2 pkg. (4-serving size each) instant vanilla pudding
4 cups milk
5 to 6 medium ripe bananas, sliced (about 3 cups), divided
2 cups thawed whipped topping, like Cool Whip
1. Prepare pudding with milk as directed on package.
2. Spoon 1/2 cup pudding in bottom of 2 quart serving bowl. Top with 8 wafers, generous layer of sliced bananas and 1 cup pudding. Stand 12 wafers around outside edge of dish. Continue layering 12 wafers, sliced bananas, 1 cup pudding, 15 wafers, sliced bananas, and remaining pudding. Cover.
3. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight to soften cookies. To serve, spread whipped topping over pudding. Garnish with additional banana slices, if desired.
As you can see, I did these in individual trifles instead of one big bowl....lot easier for me not to put too much in a bowl and indulge too much. ;) And, if you use sugar-free fat-free pudding, fat-free milk, and light or fat free whipped topping, you have a low calorie, low fat dessert that tastes just as yummy. Score!!
