Banana Fana Fo Fana

A base of crunchy, chocolaty granola crumbs holds layers of banana slices, warm vanilla pudding and whipped cream in this heavenly dessert made in minutes.

Ingredients

1
box (10 squares) Nature Valley™ granola thins
2
perfectly ripe bananas
2
cups whipping cream
1/4
cup powdered sugar
1
box (3.4 oz.) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix (not instant!)
3
teaspoon vanilla, divided
2
cups milk (for pudding)
Warm caramel sauce for garnish, if desired (not shown)

Directions

  • 1 In a small food processor or blender, crush granola thins into crumbs. (Can be done by hand.) Set aside.
  • 2 Slice 2 bananas. Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
  • 3 Whip 2 cups whipping cream with 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla until stiff peaks form. Transfer to chilled bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 4 In a small saucepan, stir vanilla pudding mix with 2 cups milk and 2 tsp. vanilla. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly so mixture doesn't scorch. Remove from heat.
  • 5 Assemble desserts immediately so pudding is still warm. On each of 4 small dessert plates, layer in this order: 1/4 cup granola crumbs, 1/4 of the banana slices, 1/4 of the warm vanilla pudding, and a large scoop of whipped cream. Sprinkle top with granola crumbs and serve immediately.
  • 6 Additional garnish, if desired: Drizzle with warm caramel sauce.
