Banana Split Trifle or Salad I’m Really Not Sure

ravensgame 009So this morning I woke up to snow.

Only issue with that I don’t like snow. I really just wish it would never happen.

I’m literally wrapped in two comforter blankets as I write this.  As I say to my self I only have about 1 1/2 months left of this crap

Sorry… I don’t find any beauty in cold fluffy ice. Unless it’s summer time and it’s in a cup with flavored syrup on it and has marshmallows on top, now that’s pretty. Yeah I used to cry when I was a kid when it would snow and we had to stay home from school. Maybe because my brother would through show balls in my face. I just don’t like being cold. Okay!

Sorry let’s make cocoa and be friends.

ravensgame 006Then you have lame people say aww but you cuddle with you boyfriend or what not. Guess what? I don’t have one and its cold outside!

maybe I’m a little bitter… okay a lot

But look unless you’re gonna come over here and pet my head and keep me warm then keep your mouth shut. This is a  single lady home and no lame dopey guys here…

ravensgame 005Okay maybe I’m being bitter because of the snow.

Sorry let’s be friends I’ll share this banana split trifle with you.

 it’s very yummy…

Banana Split Trifle

Inspired by a photo off pinterest

1 package instant vanilla pudding (5.1 oz size)
3 cups of milk (for pudding)
1 cup heavy cream
1 Tbs powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (coconut is nice too)
1 vanilla pound cake cut into chunks (I didn’t use)
2 cups chopped pineapple
4 bananas, sliced
1 pint strawberries, sliced
juice saved from the pineapple
chocolate syrup
chopped nuts (I didn’t use)
maraschino cherries
Prepare pudding as directed on package, and sit in fridge to chill and firm. Next, in a medium bowl, beat cream, just until stiff peaks are about to form. Then, beat in your powdered sugar, and extract of choice, until stiff peaks do form. Make sure not to over beat, or you will end up with very sweet butter! Set in fridge until you are ready to assemble. Next, to keep your sliced bananas from browning, set them in a shallow dish and drizzle with left over pineapple juice.
In a trifle bowl or other type of glass dish, arrange your cake cubes along the bottom. Top with about 1 cup of pineapple, half of your sliced bananas, half the strawberries, and half of the pudding. Repeat these steps again, beginning with cake and ending with pudding. *Save a few strawberries for garnish. Spoon your whipped cream on top of the pudding and gently spread it around. Garnish with sliced strawberries or even some leftover pineapple if you have some. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Top with chopped nuts and several maraschino cherries.
Can substitute fresh pineapple for canned chunk, or even crushed, pineapple. If you aren’t in the mood to make whipped cream, there’s always Cool Whip.
