Hi all, it’s Jen again from the blog PinkWhen. Summer is basically here and this easy banana split dessert recipe should be topping your to do list.

I love all things about Summer and being outdoors. We are all anxiously awaiting the pools to open and the picnics to begin. We tend to have a few big picnics and get togethers over the Summer and I am always the one who likes to bring dessert.

If you follow my blog, you can find a ton of other Summery desserts, but this might be one of the easiest.

Banana Splits are an ice cream past time for our family. I can remember growing up in Maryland when I was a child and heading out to the ice cream shop with my family.

I would always beg and plead for a banana split and my mom would always share it with me. Today, it’s the same with my youngest and myself.

I like to make things really simple, so I use instant pudding. It’s super easy, especially if you are on a time crunch. It literally takes two minutes to whisk and five minutes to set. It doesn’t get much faster than that.

Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package chocolate pudding
  • 1 package banana pudding
  • 1 sliced banana
  • crushed pretzels
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate powder
  • cherries

Instructions
 

  • Start things off by making the pudding. This only takes a couple of minutes and then let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • During the five minutes of setting time, I take my pretzels and crush them and slice the banana to add to the banana pudding bowl.
  • While you could probably make this dessert in a 9 x 13 dish, I love making these in singles serving glasses. It takes just a little extra time, but I love the way they look when finished.
  • Once you have the pudding set, I take the glasses and layer the ingredients. You can do these in any order, but I like to start with the chocolate first. Add a layer of pretzels, and then add the banana pudding with bananas. I have been able to make 6 individual sized cups with just two packages of pudding.
  • Once you have these layers done, set the desserts in the fridge or a cool place until you are ready to serve them. This also allows more time for the pudding to set just right.
  • When you are ready to serve, add the whipped cream, sprinkle with the powdered chocolate and top it all off with a cherry.
