Yes please. A pumpkin pie pudding trifle dessert that is more than delicious.
Are you a fan of banana pudding? You know the one with layers of banana pudding, vanilla wafers, banana slices, and the addition of cool whip? I am a huge fan of banana pudding and wanted to try out a fall-inspired version. Of course, pumpkin pie pudding in place of the banana pudding came into mind. I am more than glad that I went for this version. This pumpkin pie pudding trifle is more than delicious!
A new use for that can of pumpkin pie mix.
I love a easy recipe that turns out yummy. This has normally been the case when I go for the canned pumpkin pie mix. This specific canned pumpkin pie mix brings so much flavor without any extra ingredients. It was no wonder that I was going to use it in this version of banana pudding.
I tried to keep it as similar to the original banana pudding as I could. I think it did a pretty good job keeping it as close to the classic recipe
Banana Pudding without all the bananas
As I write this I am telling myself how crazy it is that I went for this banana pudding recipe idea without all the bananas. I just wrote a recipe about a Banana Bread with Cream Cheese Filling, and here I am switching up another banana recipe. If you did not know by now, I love a good banana recipe.
I also love all the pumpkin recipes too. I have found that like bananas, pumpkin does great as a substitute. These brownies are a great example and are really good! So here we are with another pumpkin substitute idea: pumpkin instead of bananas.
Lastly, the Vanilla wafers are a must.
Do not, I repeat, do not skip on the vanilla wafers. They are a must in this layered pumpkin pie pudding trifle. They are what give the layers that extra vanilla flavor as well as a great texture. I have yet to find a good substitute for these. If you have an idea, let me know!
- 1- 30 oz can of Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix (Libby's)
- 1 bag of vanilla wafers
- 1- 3.4 oz box of instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1- 8 oz tub of Cool Whip
- 1 cup of milk
- Add the can of pumpkin pie mix and the vanilla pudding mix to a large bowl. Stir well.
- Add the milk and whisk for at least 1 minute.
- Fold in the Cool Whip.
- Time to layer! Start with a layer of vanilla wafers. Then add the pudding mix to completely cover the vanilla wafers. Repeat with another layer of vanilla wafers and pudding mix. Do this until all pudding is used up and the top layer will be vanilla wafers.
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until the pudding sets.
Here for all things fall, y’all!
I have said this before, and I am going to say it again. I am here for all things fall! Give me the pumpkin pie spice lattes, and all other things that are pumpkin flavored. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
