Are you ready for the best Banana Pudding recipe?! Good because I have it for you. You are going to LOVE this stuff! Spring and Summer are my favorite times to make this delicious dessert. I even have a short video I posted on my Instagram Reels.
Perfect for Family Gatherings
My mother-in-law gave me this recipe after my husband and I got married and now I make it for all of our family and friends gatherings. I get asked for this recipe everytime I make it. That is why I knew I needed to get it on the blog. This recipe is so easy to make and it feeds a ton of people. Who doesn’t love an easy dessert that is crowd-pleasing?!
Only 6 Ingredients
You only need six ingredients and five minutes to make this delicious dessert. Let’s not forget about the Nilla Wafers. If you find the mini Nilla Wafers, those are my favorite. Just because they are bite-size and I can add more to my bowl. I told you I love this stuff.
Presentation is Everything
If you are having guests over for dinner, serve in mini dessert bowls. The presentation is everything, after all. Or serve in a trifle dish, large bowl, or a 9×13 baking dish. I am linking some items below that would work great.
I recently played around with this recipe and made a healthy version. My family had no idea I had changed anything. I plan on putting the healthy version on the blog soon, but for now, you must try this one.
