Happy Friday!! It has been waaay too long since I’ve put up a recipe + let me tell you, you are in for a treat with this one! [No pun intended.]

So quick back story: I was going to a family party a couple of months ago. I had to bring a dessert. I was craving some kind of peanut butter/banana creation. I remembered my college roomie [Ashley!!] had made some kind of incredible banana trifle with Nutter Butters once. I could not find a quick/easy enough recipe. So I kind of made this one up! …To my surprise, it worked out just fine + was pretty darn delish.

Take a look! –>

  1. Gather ingredients. 1 package of Nutter Butters, 2 packages of vanilla pudding [and milk for mixing], about 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 container of cool whip. AND 2-3 BANANA’S! Silly me forgot to include the produce.


2. Mix 2 packages of pudding + let sit until thick. In a separate bowl, melt about 1/2 cup of peanut butter in the microwave. Combine the melted peanut butter with pudding.Mixed pudding

3. Fold softened cool whip into the peanut butter/pudding mixture.

4. Grab your trifle bowl and begin layering! Start with a layer of the peanut butter/pudding mixture, follow up with a layer of crushed Nutter Butters, and then add a layer of sliced bananas. Be sure to prop the bananas up along the sides of the trifle dish… because you know, it looks prettier that way. 😉


5. Repeat until you run out of ingredients or reach the top of your bowl. Be sure to save enough Nutter Butters for the final layer! #BestPartnutter buttersAnd there you have it! Welcome to creamy, crunchy, peanut butter, banana heaven.

I love making trifles. There are so many different combinations you can try, they can be made in advance, and they always look pretty sitting on a dessert table. 🙂

Are you a banana + peanut butter fan?

What’s your favorite trifle combo?!

  1. I’m not a banana and peanut butter kinda gal but this looks delish! I would try it just because it looks really good and it’s so easy to make. Thanks for sharing lady and have a great weekend! Xoxo

  2. That looks so yummy!! Definitely going to have to try that some time! I just posted a fruit puffs recipe on my blog today, so anything with fruit and pudding, I’m in! Lol

  3. I can honestly say that I have never eaten, or made, a trifle. Can you believe it? I don’t know if you were ever a “Friends” fan, but I was and when Rachel made that trifle with Lady fingers, and beef sautéed with peas and onions I just couldn’t. 😉 I have wanted to try my hand at putting one together though. I am not a fan of PB and banana, but if I made this one, I can’t guarantee that a whole lot of Nutter butters would make it into the dessert lol

    • Oh my gosh! Noo, I cannot believe it! I do remember that friends episode…so gross LOL!! So sad you’re not a banana + PB fan!! But you can really layer anything. I love making “dirt”, I’ve made them with brownies, different fruits, pound cake, toffee! The options are endless! 🙂
