Do you need a trifle dish for this recipe?

Trifle dish is the most authentic and easy for following the recipe. If you don’t have it, use mason jars or water glasses. The method is difficult, but there is no need to purchase a new trifle dish. 

Can you make banana pudding in advance?

The beauty of this dessert is that you can make it in advance for any special occasion and guests. You do not have to do all the hard work of cooking on the same day. You can make it one or two days before and refrigerate it. We prefer making it a day before as the wafer cookies become soggy. 

Can I freeze the leftovers of banana pudding?

We would never recommend freezing the banana pudding. The ingredients, when defrosting, would get watery, and the original taste won’t be there. If you want to keep it, we recommend 4 days only in the fridge. 

Can I use homemade pudding?

Well, of course, you can. In the banana pudding recipe, we have added instant mix, preferable for most people. But if you can make pudding at home, there is nothing better than that. You can go for this customization in the recipe.
