Homemade Banana Pudding

Sweet tooth alert! One of my goals is to take the fear away from beginner cooks that shy away from “homemade” and “from scratch” recipes. It’s not as hard as you think! I believe in you! You can do it! I’m here to help. Take this banana pudding. No box of of pudding mix necessary.banana-pudding It just breaks my heart to see people buying that “banana pudding” from the deli at grocery stores. It’s literally banana pudding. It’s instant banana cream flavored pudding mix and vanilla wafer. The devil is busy!! That’s why i’m sharing this with my Cookies. Don’t settle for less out of fear. I promise my version is super easy. Watch me whip it up…


See. Piece of cake, right? Told ya it was easy! Make this!!
