Peanut Butter Banana Pudding
Elizabeth Heiskell of Debutante Farmer shares two super decadent dessert recipes for creamy peanut buttery banana pudding and rich chocolate cobbler.Nathan Congleton / TODAY


Banana Pudding
  • 6 ounces vanilla or banana instant pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Peanut Butter Mousse
  • 3 cups peanut butter
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Additional Ingredients
  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 1 package peanut butter sandwich cookies
  • Chef notes

    Banana pudding is one of my favorite desserts and the only way I can think to make it better is to add peanut butter.

    Technique tips: Pipe each layer, instead of spooning it in, to ensure clean assembly. Layer this recipe in mini mason jars and screw the top back on for easy transport.

    Swap option: Use vanilla wafers instead of peanut butter sandwich cookies.

    For the banana pudding:

    In a large bowl, mix the instant pudding, milk, sour cream, condensed milk and whipped topping together well. Chill until set and firm.

    For the peanut butter mousse:

    In a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat peanut butter and softened butter on high for two minutes. Turn mixer to low and slowly add the powdered sugar.

    To assemble:

    In a 3-quart trifle dish or 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish, layer pudding mix, peanut butter mousse, sliced bananas and peanut butter sandwich cookies, ending with the cookies.
