Banana Cream Parfait Recipe

Banana Cream Parfait Recipe

Ordinary ingredients like graham cracker crumbs and sliced bananas really dress up plain pudding. I like to serve these parfaits for casual dinners as well as for formal dining.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) instant banana pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, sliced
  • Whipped cream
  • 4 maraschino cherries, optional


  • 1. Prepare pudding according to package directions, using the 2 cups cold milk.
  • 2. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs into each of four parfait or dessert glasses. Top crumbs with 1/4 cup prepared pudding and half of the banana slices. Repeat layers of crumbs, pudding and banana slices.
