Quick & Easy Mini Banana Pudding Pies

Location: San Diego, CA

Well, hello there.  It’s been about a week and I’ve missed you all.  All 30 of you, LOL.  So I’ve had this crazy craving for Banana Pudding Pie and didn’t want to go through all of the fuss of whipping up some pudding from scratch and didn’t really want to go to the grocery store, either.  I felt like the Universe was somehow on my side, though because Trisha Yearwood made some on her show over the weekend, and my in-laws left their Nilla Wafers at my house.  Half way there…YES!  I was also at the point of having to go to the grocery store, so pudding was the first thing on my list.  One grocery shopping trip later – I was ready to satisfy all wants and needs….IMG_20160305_161221As always, gather all of your ingredients.  I went for the sugar free Jell-O to keep it healthier, and the lactose free milk because, well, let’s face it…. we can’t all handle dairy and probably shouldn’t. Banana Pudding Pie usually has sweetened condensed milk added in and a meringue topping baked on, but like I said before, “we’re keeping it healthy.”IMG_20160305_160752Dump the entire pudding mix into a medium bowl and pour in 2 cups of cold 2% or low-fat milk. Whisk for about 2 minutes or until it starts to thicken. There’s no need to refrigerate the pudding mix because we didn’t cook it over the stove.  See?  That saved us some time already.IMG_20160305_160613Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the pudding mix into each ramekin and spread into a thin layer.  This recipe will make enough for 2 medium sized ramekins.

Next, layer the wafers on top of the pudding, then spread another layer of pudding on top of the wafers, then slice the banana and layer that on top of the pudding.
