Banana Split in a Jar is an Adorable Dessert
Banana Split in a Jar is an adorable way to serve up a favorite dessert or even take it on the go. Low Cost Recipes give you a great dessert for little cash. While a banana split is usually made with ice cream, these are made with pudding, making them last a little longer, be a little neater, and making them completely portable. And what makes them so amazing? Well besides the ingredients, which are fresh and delicious, there’s the jar! You can use any jar you have, whether it be from a long gone condiment or canning jar. I have a lot of canning jars in my house so canning jars were a perfect fit for me. They have a tight fitting lid, so you can pop the dessert in lunch box and take it with you to work, giving you a sweet ending to the perfect lunch break. Another bonus is portion control. You can use a smaller size jar and know when you get to the end, you have had a perfect little dessert without too many calories!
Fresh Ingredients for Banana Split in a Jar
I start my Banana Split in a Jar with fresh pudding, usually the instant kind. Fast and easy to make, it’s perfect for Banana Split in a Jar. Sliced bananas, strawberries, and a bit of chocolate sauce fill up the rest of the room in my jars. While pineapple is a common topping on a banana split, the juiciness makes it not suitable for this dish. But, if you could find pineapple preserves, that would be perfect. If you are serving these adorable desserts at home, you can top your Banana Split in a Jar with fresh whipped cream and a cherry. I found the whipped cream goes flat though if you’re taking it to work. Anyway you make these, they’re a delicious little dessert an adorable little jar.
