Banana Pudding Trifle

This delicious and easy-to-make Banana Pudding Trifle is the perfect dessert for your next party!
Banana Pudding Trifle RecipeBanana pudding with vanilla wafers is one of my husbands very favorite desserts! It’s so good and tasty in simple form. But, we decided to kick it up a notch with these by making a banana pudding dessert trifle. Doesn’t it look SO good?! It is – SUPER yummy! I love that this one looks a bit elaborate and pretty to make/bring for a party, but you can whip it up in no time. Really, we had the whole thing prepped in less than 20 minutes for a big pot luck we went to recently. And, since the recipe is no-bake, it makes for a really great option during the summer months – no heating up the oven! Whipping up some pudding and slicing up bananas is about as complicated as it gets! You can get as “fancy” as you’d like with the layers and the toppings! Just a little pretty whipped cream design and caramel drizzle really takes it up a notch though! Everyone went CRAZY for it at our recent party – next time I’m going to need to make two! 😉

Here’s the easy recipe:
