What makes a great banana pudding? We think it’s the perfect blend of fresh bananas, creamy pudding, and vanilla wafers, served in a caramel-drizzled parfait cup and topped with homemade whipped cream, a ‘nilla wafer crumble, and even more caramel sauce… in other words, everything that goes into our banana pudding! If you’ve been a longtime City Barbeque fan, you may have noticed that we recently upgraded one of our fan-favorite desserts by adding some of these extra-special touches. It turns out that Paula Deen noticed these changes as well—and liked them! The queen of Southern home cookin’ added our banana pudding to her “10 to Try” list in the February edition of Cooking with Paula Deen. We’re so glad our banana pudding made the cut… then again, we’re always excited whenever someone says they like our pudding! We’re awfully fond of it ourselves 😉
Need another reason to taste our take on a classic? Bananas have plenty of health benefits! They are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and nutrients like potassium. A medium-sized banana only has about 105 calories, but also contains resistant starch or pectin—both of which may reduce appetite and help keep you full. So if the cookies, caramel, or whipped cream ever give you pause, know that you’re getting a nutritional boost with this traditional treat!
