Here’s a Southern-inspired dessert that deliciously pairs fresh banana chunks with silky banana cream and vanilla cookie crumbles. You and your guests won't be able to get enough of it. To easily pipe the pudding into the cups, spoon it into a plastic bag and cut off the corner. Twist and squeeze the bag as you fill each cup. For convenience sake, to make these parfaits up to 5 hours ahead, mix the chopped banana with 1 tsp lemon juice before assembling to prevent browning. Keep chilled until ready to use. Also, this recipe can easily be halved for smaller crowds.
