Dee Dee's Banana Pudding Trifle

Diane Atherton


I didn't have to think twice about what to do with our ripe banana's today. If you live in the south, you know banana pudding is a staple! Well, it is at our house.

I threw this semi-homemade dish together with what I had on hand and everyone was pleased with the end results!

Super quick and easy!

Hope you enjoy!
