Banana Pudding Recipe Tips

+ Isabel says, “This is the kind of dessert that you’d like to eat right away. The bananas oxidize quite fast so it isn’t a good dessert to store for days, although you can prep the vanilla custard ahead of time and assemble the dessert when ready to eat.”

+ Having the right glass makes this recipe way more fun for guests. We love these parfait glasses.

+ Why does Isabel love this recipe? “It’s an easy dessert with very little prep that will be a crowd-pleaser.”
