2 teaspoons (light or dark) brown sugar
2 teaspoons butter, diced
1 cup pudding*
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup whole milk
8-10 Nila Wafers
Whipped cream (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 400F. Make a slit down both of the bananas; transfer to a baking sheet. Sprinkle each banana with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar; dot each banana with the diced butter. Bake for 15 minutes. Set aside and allow to come to room temperature.
2. Slice the bananas into medallions and add to a blender, along with the pudding, vanilla ice cream and whole milk. Break the Nila Wafers, using your hands, into the blender. Pulse for 5-10 seconds and until just combined. Transfer to glasses and top with whipped cream and maybe a cherry.
*If you're using the Trader Joe's Instant Pudding Mix, combine 1 cup milk with 4 tablespoons pudding mix. Whisk with a fork for about 2 minutes, until the mixture thickens.
