Banana Pudding: File under "TO DIE FOR"

Monday, January 16, 2017

Well it's Monday, which naturally means we should talk about dessert. 

We hosted a little birthday dinner for Bella (yes, still celebrating) and I decided to cheat on our go-to brownies & cake with a little something different.
Magnolia Bakery's Famous Banana Pudding

1 1/2 cups Water  // 2/3 cup instant vanilla pudding mix //  1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
3 cups heavy cream // 1 (12 oz) box vanilla wafers // 4 bananas (sliced)

Mix together the water, pudding mix, and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight until it sets.

Whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Working in thirds, fold the whipped cream into the pudding mixture until well incorporated.

In a trifle bowl, layer vanilla wafers, sliced bananas, and pudding mixture; continue until you've used up all the pudding mixture. Refrigerate for at least another 30 minutes before serving.

Here's the thing: I don't love bananas, I almost never eat them straight up. However, I LOVE this dessert. It's not over-the-top banana flavor - just a hint and every bite is perfection. This works great to serve to a large group, as it makes a ton. You can also separate it out & make individual trifles. So pretty & very "impessive" as Baylor would say.
