Banana Pudding – My Sister’s Favorite Sweet Treat

My sister’s favorite sweet treat was Banana Pudding.  I remember every Christmas or other special occasions including my Bridal Shower she would be in the kitchen making this sweet and tasty treat.

Using a dozen bananas, 2 boxes of vanilla pudding, milk, and Cool Whip she would prepare her’s and my favorite dessert.

I always looked forward to her making Banana Pudding every holiday and never attempted to make it myself until this year.  You see, my sister was killed in a car accident in 1992 and for the last 24 years, not a day goes by that I don’t think of her with the holidays being the hardest.

However, this year, I felt the need to try and make my sister’s favorite sweet tweet for my own sons and thankfully it tasted just as good as I remembered.  The banana pudding was sweet but the memories of my sis were sweeter.

When it comes to the holidays, most families have a traditional pie, cake or another sweet treat that they like to serve and now my sister’s Banana Pudding Sweet Treat Dessert is going to be mine again.
