Are you ready to whip up some fun? These Strawberry Banana Pudding Cups are such a simple and delicious treat for after-school or special occasions. With the end of the school year fast approaching, my nieces have been working extra hard preparing for final exams. They come over so hungry after school. These yummy snack cups are the perfect way to put a smile back on their faces, after a long day of school.
Layered desserts come together easily and always look so pretty. These snack cups taste like your favorite banana pudding with the added twist of strawberries. Strawberry and banana is one of my favorite flavor combinations.
Did you know that Cool Whip is celebrating its 50th anniversary? They have been whipping up smiles, and making the ordinary that much more special for a very long time. Cool Whip finds its way into so many of my recipes. I pretty much always have a tub in the freezer.
Clear plastic cups work perfectly for this treat. Begin with a bit of crushed vanilla cookies in the bottom of each cup.
Then spoon in a layer of prepared banana flavored pudding.
Add some banana slices.
Then a generous amount of Cool Whip.
A layer of strawberries comes next.
And some more banana pudding.
Top it all off with some more Cool Whip.
You can optionally garnish with slices of strawberries and bananas, and some additional cookie crumble.
Doesn’t that look great? The girls like to dip their spoons down to the bottom of the cup to get a taste every delicious layer in each bite. I think they’re onto something.
