Don’t these little cuties look like their ready for a picnic, all self contained and such! And since they contain bananas, I think they can be classified as health food…..

 

I do love making desserts that are contained in mason jars, first, their portion controlled, second, easy to give away, and third, portable.  These come together so easy, I actually got home from work late and still had time to throw them together.

Mix together, banana cream jello pudding mix, sugar, milk and some vanilla.  Let it set for 5 to 10 minutes, I chopped up lettuce for a salad and made Yogurt parfaits for breakfast while it set.  Then I add Cool Whip to the mixture and put the banana cream filling to a plastic bag

    Yum, these look so good! I love how they are individual portions! I just made some homemade banana pudding tonight that I am impatiently waiting to cool off and set. I’m gonna pin this for the next time I make this! Found you over at Simple Supper Tuesday!
