These Homemade Banana Pudding Cups are the ultimate parfait dessert! Delicious vanilla pudding made from scratch, then layered with sliced bananas, vanilla wafers, and freshly whipped cream. They’re an easy individual dessert that’s perfect for summer parties and holidays.
In a large saucepan combine the sugar and cornstarch until smooth and has no lumps. Stir in the milk and cream until well combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer beat the whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use or make just before serving.
Put a small amount of pudding in each cup. Put a layer of vanilla wafers, bananas, and pudding. Repeat 1 more time. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but best if overnight. Just before serving top with whipped cream. Decorate as desired.
