Happy Monday! I hope you had a great Father's Day! My mom and dad came over and we cooked up some amazing fall-of-the-bone chipotle caramel smoked ribs. The sun finally came out and we were able to eat our first meal outside! I'm hoping now that we had our official first day of Summer, the sun will get the memo and continue to shine! I'm looking forward to more outdoor dinners and eating these little salted caramel banana puddings for dessert! What's great about these are they are inexpensive to make, you might already have all of the ingredients (if not, they're easy to find), they are no-bake for hot days and they whip together in under 10 minutes - Perfect for last minute company!
- 1 - 3.4oz package of French Vanilla instant pudding
- 2 c whole milk (Any milk will do, I just like my pudding thick)
- 1 banana sliced
- 24-30 Nilla Wafer cookies
- Caramel Kitchen salted caramel sauce
- In a medium bowl, combine the pudding mix and milk. Whisk until combine and set aside for about 5 minutes for pudding to set.
- In the meantime, slice up one banana.
- Depending on what size serving dish you have, the amount of Nilla Wafers you will need will vary. In this photo I used a shot glasses which fit a single cookie perfectly in the bottom of the glass.
- From here we are just going to layer our dish beginning with the Nilla Wafer first.
- Add a spoonful of pudding over the wafer.
- Cover the pudding with sliced bananas.
- Drizzle salted caramel sauce over the bananas.
- Continue to layer with another wafer (I used 1 1/2 cookies on my second layer), pudding, bananas and caramel sauce.
- Garnish with whip cream, a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, a banana slice and a whole Nilla Wafer cookie.
- Chill in your refrigerator until ready to serve. (The longer they are in the fridge, the softer the cookie layers will get).
Serves 6 - This recipe is for a serving of six because that is how many glasses I had, but it will leave you with leftover pudding. If you need to serve more there is enough pudding to make 10 dishes depending on the size of the glasses you are using.
