Nutter Butter Banana Pudding

Nutter Butter Banana Pudding has been a big hit at henrybella's. Creamy, sweet and cold, it has all the ingredients of a summer hit: fruit, peanut butter and whipped cream.

I found a recipe - this one - in Southern Living a few months ago. The good news? Even folks who don't cook can make this luscious layer dessert. Using store bought pudding, Cool Whip, bananas and cookies, a sweet lover can make and take this in a hurry. You can even make it in advance and then stash it in the refrigerator and forget it.

I'm thinking of making this for the weekend. I'll use my homemade vanilla pudding, though, and vanilla beans to round out some sweetened whipped cream. Just like at henrybella's. I think my family can use some cold, comforting desserts this weekend....

Thanks for all your kindness this week. Wishing you a happy Friday. -Brin

That looks amazing.

In my family we use an expression of my father's when things are tough-

"Keep a tight rein."

You too miss-

I don't really care for pudding, but my Sisters all adore it. I'll be making this for them and tell them were I got the idea. You're the best, sweet girl, for sharing good things with us. Bless you. xxoo
