Banana pudding jars are perfect for a picnic in the park. Just make the banana pudding into a mason jar and take it on the go. I love this for kids sports season desserts on the go.
Mason jars are just perfect to put food on the go in. I used to do this for lunches for work and for the kids. What is cool is mason jar’s come in so many sizes.
Mason Jars For On The Go
Use mason jars for desserts, lunches, and dinners on the go. Whether it be sports, dance, or color guard that has you on the go this is an easy way to feed. Make foods in advance and have them ready to grab and go.
We start off with some banana cream pudding mix from Jello. Then we whisk in some milk and it sets right up in five minutes. Once it’s set the rest is pretty darn easy.
Layer in the nilla wafers, sliced bananas, and pudding until you reach the top. I like to do this in three’s then repeat. Bananas can be added between layers or just on top.
If I am serving them quickly I add the fresh banana. However, if I plan to make ahead and serve later the next day I just add the pudding. Toss in the wafers and fresh banana right before it’s to be consumed.
The banana doesn’t do well sitting overnight and can darken. Plus Nilla wafers can get pretty soggy fast. So, I don’t prep these banana pudding jars to early in advance.
I love to make them and take them on a picnic as well. The pudding jars are great to make smaller versions as a small dessert for a formal setting. Baby showers or graduations in a small serving size containers.
It’s easy and mostly everyone loves banana pudding. What’s better than banana pudding jars, BBQ picnic chicken, and some Dill Pickle Pasta Salad on a picnic at the park or lake.
