What’s better than your own Individual Banana Pudding? No baking required, served in personal jars. These personal servings are great for parties, cookouts, and portion control!
When I was a kid, I went nuts for banana pudding. It was a staple served in not only my mother’s house, but also my grandmother’s house. I couldn’t wait for Sunday dinner, because I knew I’d get my favorite dessert. I’m pretty sure the South can claim banana pudding, and that makes me glad I’m a Southerner.
Growing up, my favorite banana pudding was baked in an oven loaded with bananas and vanilla wafers topped with a classic meringue. Nowadays, the busier our schedules get, the harder it is to spend all day cooking and baking. Luckily, with this no bake banana pudding recipe, I can cut the baking time down to zero, which gives me plenty of time to spend with my family. What’s better than that? I’d like to think my grandma would have loved this recipe. Banana pudding always reminds me of her. I would always help her in the kitchen, and I’d always get caught sneaking a couple handfuls of Keebler Vanilla Wafers.
I especially love turning a family favorite into a modern avatar, because, let’s face it, “no baking required” is totally in style right now. Individual banana pudding that is served in small ball jars are a great addition to your parties or cookouts. Everyone gets their own jar, everybody gets the same size, and nobody gets to hog all the banana pudding. If I’m going to be completely honest, I’d probably be the one to hog all the pudding. I’m that girl, and I have no shame.
Putting the individual banana pudding jars together is really easy and takes minimal effort. If you have young kids, this is the perfect project for them. They will especially love how the wafers come in different colors. Because I’ve used mini ball jars, I couldn’t help but use Keebler Vanilla Wafers Mini. They’re the cutest little size and fit wonderfully into the jars without overcrowding. You can roughly crush them or keep them whole. I chose to keep them whole and sprinkle crushed wafers on top. If you prefer, you can also use regular size wafers, just make sure to add only 2 or 3 to the bottom of the jar. These really are the perfect personal dessert.
I found Keebler Vanilla Wafers Mini at my local Kroger in the cookie aisle. The cookie aisle is the best aisle, if you know what I mean. Wink wink.
This recipe sure has taken me down memory lane. For more great ideas and inspiration, be sure to check out the #BiteSizedBitsOfJoy Social Hub –coming soon! What nostalgic recipe will you choose to make with your favorite Keebler cookie?
