Banana Pudding Lovers Month

Banana Pudding Lovers Month is observed every November, and it serves as a reminder of how delicious this simple dessert can be. While many people eat banana pudding straight or maybe with some vanilla Nilla Wafers, there are actually quite a few things that can be made with it.

Banana pudding can be used as a base for coconut-banana pudding, combined with chocolate pudding to make a chocolate-banana pudding trifle, turned into banana pudding pie, transformed into banana pudding cheesecake, or used as icing for a poke cake.

No matter how this pudding is enjoyed, there’s one thing that’s sure to happen: there are going to be a lot of smiling faces around the table.

The History of Banana Pudding Lovers Month

It has since become a holiday month that’s been observed by countless people all over the U.S. We know that we’re big fans of Banana Pudding Lovers Month and will continue to celebrate it ourselves with some tasty banana pudding recipes that we pick up off the internet.

Observing Banana Pudding Lovers Month

The first step anyone should take is to decide whether they want to make their own banana pudding or use a store-bought boxed pudding. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone if you decide to use a boxed pudding; after all, that’s what we plan on using.

Once you’ve sorted out the pudding, it’s then customary for people to decide whether they’re going to enjoy it straight up or incorporate it into a recipe. Fortunately, November has 30 days in it, so a person could make a whole lot of banana pudding dessert recipes.

No matter what you create, just be sure to use the hashtag #BananaPuddingLoversMonth to let the rest of us know what dessert you whipped up.
