Banana Pudding Parfaits

My Mama, aka Maw Maw, makes the best banana pudding ever.  The best.  Seriously.  If she didn't make it for a family function, there might be a riot.  There would definitely be sad grandchildren,  So, of course, she always makes it.  Even though it's time-consuming.  Whatever it takes to keep those grand babies happy, right?

Well, I came up with a simpler, quicker way to get the same great flavor as Maw Maw's banana pudding without all the work.  Parfaits!


1 (3.5 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
vanilla wafers
whipped cream (I used a can of Reddi-Whip)
A few bananas, sliced

In a big bowl, whisk together the sour cream and milk until smooth.

Add the pudding mix and whisk until thickened.

In clear glasses (I use juice glasses), layer the ingredients in the following order:  A few vanilla wafers, a few slices of banana, a little of the pudding mixture, some whipped cream.  Then repeat the layers.

Garnish the top with a vanilla wafer (or vanilla wafer crumbs).

See how quick and easy these are to make?  

The sour cream makes the pudding extra rich and decadent.  It elevates a simple pudding into something special.  They're pretty, too!  Perfect for entertaining!  Parfait does mean "Perfect" in French after all.  I think Maw Maw would approve.
