Why stop at Banana Pudding?

Updated on October 6, 2015

Tradition vs. Creativity

The traditional Banana Pudding I knew was a layered creation of banana slices, vanilla cookies and vanilla pudding. I eventually replaced the vanilla pudding with banana pudding; it's all banana anyway, isn't it?!

But I wouldn't be myself if I wouldn't experiment a little...

There are so many flavors of pudding out there to give you a wide open area of opportunities! In addition, the available fruits at your local store make for a ton of additional variations!

So I tried or planned to use the corresponding puddings with the fruit that match them. Banana pudding and bananas, pineapple pudding and pineapples, strawberry pudding and strawberries, vanilla pudding with pretty much any other fruit out there. I do have to say that apples should be cooked first!

Another idea that came up was my children's love for chocolate; so why not make a chocolate pudding with chocolate cookies (like Oreos) and chocolate pieces?!

And if you don't like the simple vanilla cookies, try wafers, ladyfingers, graham cookies and anything else you can find.

Your imagination and taste is the only limit!

In the end I even thought of a 'adult' version: There are tons of different and very flavorful liquors and such out there that can add a little 'kick' to a simple pudding desert!

And the garnish can be anything from diced chocolate, fresh peppermint, corresponding fruit to flavored ice cream or whipped cream!

      you've got some good ideas! If I can pull myself from the banana pudding, may give one of them a try.

      My mother in law introduced me to things such as banana pudding, strawberry jello and pumpkin pie. Another friend always made us pumpkin roll for Christmas.

      I love this kind of dessert and my mother in law would get gray hair when I started experimenting with it! lol

      I love banana pudding and have not eaten it or made it in years. When I was younger my friend and I would sometimes make banana pudding on days when we were going to have a sleepover. Thanks for reminding me of this classic dessert. I am inspired to make it again!
