Love banana pudding but not the time it takes to make it? Check out this easy banana pudding parfait using ice cream!
Bananas are one of my favorite fruits. When my son was a toddler, there were also his favorite fruit and we’d go through literally 9 pounds of bananas a week! It was crazy. One of my favorite desserts is also banana pudding. I’ll find myself craving banana pudding but not have the ingredients, or the energy to make it. But now I have an easy and fun way to make banana “pudding” – with ice cream.
This banana pudding recipe is from the Breyers Ice Cream website. Breyers vanilla ice cream was one of my mom’s favorite brands so I grew up eating it. As a mom myself, now, I have a lot more reasons than just nostalgia to buy Breyers ice cream.
Breyers is committed to using high quality ingredients. Check out the ingredient list on the Breyers Natural Vanilla ice cream package. The list is pretty short. Breyers Natural Vanilla is made with fresh cream, sugar, milk, and sustainably farmed vanilla beans. Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones.* Breyers products are available in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 – $5.99.
The base of the banana pudding is a scoop of Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream. Slices of banana are sprinkled with sugar and then sauteed in butter. Top the ice cream with the bananas and add in vanilla wafer cookies for final touch.
It tastes just like a bowl of banana pudding – only I liked it even better! It was ready in just a few minutes, too, making it a great last minute dessert. Follow Breyers on Pinterest, Breyers on Twitter, and Breyers on Facebook for more delicious recipes!
