Banana Puddintini Cocktail an easy homemade dessert drink recipe inspired by banana pudding. If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember that I mentioned last week that I had a great idea for a new “-tini” while doing the laundry. Not sure how and why some of these crazy recipe ideas come into my head! And not sure how and why I got into this strange cocktail and -tini kick lately! I must have been thinking about my trip to the south to Atlanta this past weekend (more on that soon!). I had a banana pudding mix in the cupboard and some Pinnacle Whipped Vodka and Banana Vodka and the Banana Puddintini was born!
Be sure to check out my Recipe Index for more cocktail and -tini recipes. I have a few more ideas coming up in the future! These Banana Puddintinis are easy to make just like my other -tinis!
Although most Southerners would make their banana pudding from scratch, that’s not so easy to turn into a cocktail so I used an instant pudding mix. You just need a few other ingredients that are fairly easy to find. If you can get your hand on these mini Nabisco Mini Nilla Wafers they are perfect to line the rim of the glass with as well as top the drink off with.
You can first rim the glasses with caramel or butterscotch then crushed wafers.
Mix the cream/milk, vodkas, and pudding in a shaker with ice. I used skim milk for a “lighter” version, but you could use any kind of milk or cream you have on hand. The pudding will turn the drink a pale yellow (hard to see in the picture), but if it’s not “yellow” enough for you, you could mix in a few drops of yellow food coloring. I added about 1-2 drops but you probalby don’t need it.
I just wanted to make sure it looked yellow in the pictures! You can also top the drinks with whipped cream and a mini wafer if you want. Enjoy!
Hope you like it!
