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.

Banana pudding mix

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.
