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!
BANANA PUDDING PARFAITS
1 (3.5 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
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.
