Banana Split Trifle

Banana Split Trifle It took some unexpected company, left-over brownies, milk that needed to be used up and ripening bananas on the counter that lead to this creation.

My daughter and I literally made it up as we went and served it to rave reviews!

We should have made it earlier and let it sit in the fridge longer. But our audience had no complaints and literally licked the bowl cleaned!

Banana Split Trifle

9 x 13 pan of brownies (more or less)
1 large box vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 ripe bananas
1 bag frozen raspberries, thawed and drained
1 – 8 oz. tub of whipped topping

Mix the vanilla pudding with 2 cups milk according to the directions on the package. Add vanilla extract and almond extract.  Peel and slice the banana and stir into the pudding. Set aside.

Break the brownies into small bite size pieces and layer in a large glass bowl. Sprinkle with raspberries.

Spoon a layer of whipped topping over the brownies and berries being careful to go all the way to the edge.

Follow this with a layer of banana pudding. repeat the layers until the bowl is full.
