Coconut and Banana Pudding Dessert Recipe - Instructions
Began by using a large bowl; add a bottom layer of Nilla wafer cookies to the bowl. And then make a layer of sliced bananas on top of the cookies; apply the vanilla wafer cookies and banana layers until you're at the middle of the bowl. Cook 1 cup of pre-sweetened coconut (pre-shredded) on medium heat with a tablespoon of butter. Stir-fry the coconut for about 5 minutes, after it's done apply it as the middle layer of the banana pudding. Now continue adding the banana layers and wafer cookies layers until you reach the top of the bowl, the Nilla wafers should be the last layer of the Coconut and Banana Pudding Recipe bowl. If you like walnut pieces like I do, you can add the walnuts as the last layer on this recipe bowl. The walnuts can give this dessert recipe a beautiful design topping.
We're not finished yet; cook about 1/2 quart of milk in a pot on low heat, once the milk is warm start adding the vanilla Jell-O pudding slowly as you're stirring the pudding mix in. Now that the pudding is cooking into the milk, let it cook for 2-4 minutes, add a teaspoon of nutmeg, and then pour the warm pudding onto the large bowl of banana and wafers (sparingly).
You can chill this dessert in the fridge for 30-45 minutes before serving; add aluminum foil to cover the bowl. This banana pudding recipe can be eaten with a side order of vanilla ice (choose an ice cream that doesn't over-power the flavor of the banana pudding). Also, whip cream is a fun topping to add to the banana pudding as well.
Coconut contains electrolytes which is good for maintaining hydration and energy in the body.
Tip Idea: Banana pudding that has been in the fridge a whole day and then put in the microwave for 40 seconds (per serving) will taste warm and good, especially with a side of cold vanilla ice cream.
