Nutter Butter Banana Trifle

This is my first blog post from my new iPad! Last week was a little rough for me; three days after my iPhone started acting up, my five year old MacBook Pro had a logic board crash. Unsalvageable, I was now in the market for a new laptop. Weighing the pros and cons of getting a MacBook Air versus an iPad, I couldn't make up my mind. After talking it through with a helpful Apple Specialist, we decided together than an iPad was all I needed at this point in my life. I could't be happier! I feel like a rockstar carrying around my new sleek device.

This week for my post, I threw together a quick and easy no-bake dessert, perfect for hot summer days. With the temperature approaching the high eighties this past weekend, I didn't want to be stuck in doors slaving away in the kitchen. This recipe literally took me fifteen minutes to put together, and it's so refreshing! Creamy vanilla pudding layered with sliced bananas and crushed nutter butter cookies. Yum! I served this for dessert after making my boyfriend Banana Pepper Chicken & Couscous for dinner! A wonderful way to end a nice weekend. Hope you all enjoy!
