I decided for the 4th to have a good ole American favorite dessert...banana pudding! This time with an updated twist as my hubby prefers no meringue. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo before it was all consumed. It certainly was easy to make, then chilled, and cool on the palette for a hot July 4th. It brought back childhood memories..delicious!
