Chocolate and vanilla banana cream parfaits
SmartPoints® value per serving
These parfaits are a wonderful combination of creamy pudding and banana chunks with a cookie topping. Almost like mini crustless cream pies. You can get a jumpstart making these ahead by preparing the puddings in advance. Wait until right before serving to assemble though to keep preserve the color of the banana slices and to prevent the graham cracker crumbs from becoming soggy. For more banana flavor, substitute banana-flavored pudding for the vanilla variety. You could also swap out the banana in favor of strawberries, raspberries or blueberries. Garnish with a sprig of mint or dust the whipped topping with cocoa for pretty presentation.
