Banana Parfaits with Granola Crumble

Crunchy granola, creamy bananas, thick pudding and pillowy whipped topping are layered into parfait glasses (or jars) to create a quick and easy dessert.

These banana parfaits are delicious.  They are a perfect snack for a week night or even movie night.  The fresh bananas make you think you are eating a homemade treat and you won't be thinking about boxed pudding mix.

They are great when eaten right when they are made, but I also like them after the granola has softened a bit.  It's a great combination of flavors and textures and a treat that the whole family will love.

(Printable Recipe)

1 (3.4 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding
2 c. 1% milk
1 c. lite frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 c. low-fat granola
2 large bananas, sliced

In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry pudding mix and the milk until well combined.  Refrigerate until set; about 5 minutes.  Place two Tablespoons of granola into the bottom of each of four parfait glasses.  Top each with a little pudding, some banana slices and some whipped topping.  Then repeat with another layer of one Tablespoon of granola, a little pudding, some banana slices and some whipped topping.  Garnish with a little more granola on top and serve.  Serves: 4.  

Note: if you want to make these a little bit in advance, give the bananas a little spritz of lemon or pineapple juice to keep them from browning.
