Boozy Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Recipe

I recently when to a restaurant where they had peanut butter banana pudding on the dessert menu. After finishing dessert, I got to work recreating the recipe, but a boozy version with Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding! I love this recipe because you can pre-make before guests arrive and it is easy to serve, all you need is a spoon.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Package of Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

4 Bananas

8 Ounces Whipped Cream Topping

1 Box of Instant Banana Pudding Mix

1/2 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding, Cold

1 1/2 Cup Milk, Cold

Directions:

Gather all of your ingredients and four stemless, shatterproof wine glasses. Make the instant pudding first according to the instructions on the box, but substitute 1/2 cup of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding for the milk. Mix the remainder of the milk with the pudding mix until a pudding consistency forms. You can add more Jackson Morgan instead of milk if you prefer for it to be boozier. Slice the fresh bananas and set aside.

In each wine glass, layer mini peanut butter cookies, fresh bananas, banana pudding, and whipped cream topping. I used piping bags for the pudding and whipped cream topping for easier assembling. Make sure you go in this order so your peanut butter cookies will not be soggy, end with whipped cream topping. Serve immediately or keep in the fridge until guests arrive.

Cheers!

Boozy Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Recipe

I had the best time making these recipes for our flatbread and boozy ice cream party. My brother, Jackson, was my taste tester. This recipe is easy to make and great to have on hand for last-minute get togethers. The combo of peanut butter and banana is one of my favorites for ice cream. This recipe was part of my ice cream tray, check out that post here.

Boozy Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding

4 tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Mini Peanut Butter Cups, optional garnish

Directions:

Place the bowl of an electric kitchen mixer along with the whisk attachment in the freezer for 20 minutes while you gather your ingredients. In the mixer bowl, add heavy whipping cream and mix on medium-high speed until stiff peaks start to form about three minutes. Then add Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding and whisk another minute.

Next, pour in sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter. Add ice cream mixture to an airtight container and place in the freezer. After the ice cream has been in the freezer for a few hours and hardened, top with mini peanut butter cups and place back in the freezer overnight, optional.

Notes:

Depending on your taste preference, you may want to add more or less of the peanut butter. I found natural peanut butter easier to mix in the ice cream.

Spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake

For our 4th of July party, I wanted to serve a dessert that was easy to make, pretty, and boozy. This spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox cake hit all those marks. It helps too that you store it in your freezer so you can make ahead and do not have to worry about it before the party starts.

Spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

1 Box of Instant Banana Pudding Mix

1/2 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding, cold

1 1/2 Cup Milk, cold

1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 (8 ounces) Containers Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed

4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar

8 oz Block Cream Cheese, softened

1 Box Graham Crackers

2 Cups Strawberries, sliced

4 Bananas, sliced

Directions:

Gather all of your ingredients and a 9-inch square freezer safe dish. Make the pudding first according to the instructions on the box, but substitute 1/2 cup of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding for the milk. Mix the remainder of the milk with the pudding mix until a pudding consistency forms, set aside. You can add more Jackson Morgan instead of milk if you prefer for it to be boozier.

Next using an electric mixer fitted with a flat beater, beat sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese on medium-low speed until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in one 8 ounce thawed whipped topping container into the cream cheese condensed milk mixture. Then add in the pudding and mix until well combined.

To assemble the icebox cake, layer the bottom of the dish with graham crackers, you may need to break a few graham crackers to cover the bottom of the dish fully. Then add a layer of sliced bananas and sliced strawberries. Pour 1/3 of the cream cheese condensed milk pudding mixture over the top of the fruit. Repeat until you fill your dish to the top. Put the icebox cake in the freezer while you make the whipped topping icing.

Using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk powdered sugar and remaining thawed whipped topping together until smooth on medium-low speed. Remove cake from freezer, spread a small layer of whipped topping icing across the top of the cake. With the remaining icing, add to a pipping bag and cut a small opening in the bag. Carefully pipe straight lines of whipped topping icing across the top of the cake. Then add sliced strawberries between the lines. Freeze overnight. Remove from freezer for 30 minutes before enjoying.

Notes:

You may have leftover pudding, which you can use to make mini boozy banana puddings with vanilla wafers.

Cheers!

Boozy Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a staple in the south. We serve it for birthdays, holidays, or just because. My mom came up with the idea for Jackson Morgan in the banana pudding flavor. They always say your mother is always right and she hit the nail on the head with this flavor. You can serve this dish many ways, but we preferred a layered dessert in a trifle dish growing up.

Boozy Banana Pudding

Ingredients:

1 Box of Vanilla Wafers

4 Bananas

8 Ounces Whipped Cream Topping

1 Box of Instant Banana Pudding Mix

1/2 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding, Cold

1 1/2 Cup Milk, Cold

Dried Banana Chips, optional garnish

Directions:

Gather all of your ingredients and trifle dish. Make the instant pudding first according to the instructions on the box, but substitute 1/2 cup of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding for the milk. Mix the remainder of the milk with the pudding mix until a pudding consistency forms. You can add more Jackson Morgan instead of milk if you prefer for it to be boozier. Slice the fresh bananas and set aside.

In a trifle bowl, layer vanilla wafers, fresh bananas, banana pudding, and whipped cream topping. Make sure you go in this order so your vanilla wafers will not be soggy, end with whipped cream topping. Place four vanilla wafers in a sealed plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crumble the cookies. Sprinkle the crushed cookies over the whipped cream topping and place a few banana chips on top as a garnish. Serve immediately.

Cheers!

End of Summer Pool Party Cocktails

We shared details of our end of summer pool party last week, this week I spilling all the details on our cocktails that we served. You may be surprised at how easy these cocktails are to make! 

I am a huge craft cocktail lover, but sometimes they can be overly complicated and guests might feel intimidated. To keep things simple for my end of summer pool party, I served Jackson Morgan whipped orange and banana pudding plain with the option of adding ice. There were no complaints and no one had to play bartender all afternoon, that is a win win in my book. 

If you want to fancy it up, it would be fun to add ice cream and pour Jackson Morgan over it for a cool treat. In the past, we have created milkshake and sundae bars with every kind of topping and ice cream you could imagine. Check out our old posts for inspiration. 

What is your favorite poolside cocktail?

How to Create a Brunch Coffee Bar

For Jackson Morgan's Easter Brunch, we already shared recipes for spiked banana bread and iced coffee. We swapped out our usual bar cart for a coffee bar. This set up is easy and you can use items you already own. 

How to Create a Coffee Bar: 

  • Pick a theme, for our coffee bar we chose bright colors for spring. 
  • Use coffee mugs you already own and mix and match. We used a variety of Ashley Brooke Design's mugs. Everyone picked their favorite saying to sip on coffee. 
  • Pick your favorite liquor, we of course had our spring flavors of Jackson Morgan (banana pudding and salted caramel). We also had champagne for mimosas. 
  • For your mixers, use carafes. We had iced coffee, hot coffee (we kept the hot coffee near the coffee maker), and orange juice. 
  • Include fun items such as paper straws, hazelnut wafers (for coffee stirrers), tray, flowers, and artwork. 
  • Have alternative drinks such as sparkling water for between cocktails.

Cheers!  

 

 

Adult Easter Basket

Easter is around the corner, children should not be the only ones who receive Easter baskets. Why not make an "adult" Easter basket? Show your besties some love with an assortment of spring treats. 

For our adult basket, we included fancy chocolates from William-Sonoma including a chocolate bunny, jelly beans, chocolate eggs, and speckled eggs. A "Hello Sunshine" mug from Ashley Brooke Designs. Last but not least a bottle of Jackson Morgan in banana pudding. You could also include candles, cocktail glasses, coffee beans, a favorite movie, or nail polish. 

Cheers! 

Banana Iced Coffee

With the start of Spring, we have traded in our traditional hot coffee for iced coffee. For brunch or an afternoon pick me up, this coffee cocktail is our go to treat. Simply add Jackson Morgan banana pudding to your favorite iced coffee. 

Ingredients:

·   8 oz Iced Coffee

·   1 1/2 Oz Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding

Directions:

Pour iced coffee over ice, then add in Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding and stir. 

Cheers!

 

Spiked Banana Bread

For my Easter brunch, I made banana bread and spiked it with Jackson Morgan's banana pudding flavor. I cheated (a little) and used William-Sonoma's banana bread mix. I love banana bread, but sometimes I do not have time to make it from scratch, and this mix saved the day.  

For the banana bread recipe (per William-Sonoma's instructions on the back of the mix), I swapped out 1/3 cup water for 1/3 cup Jackson Morgan in banana pudding. It was a crowd favorite and one of my favorite parts of my brunch. 

Cheers! 

Easter Brunch

It is hard to believe Easter is around the corner! I put together an easy and fun brunch to celebrate the occasion. Our family always gets together over Easter weekend and my mother hosts a lovely brunch and everyone dresses in their Sunday best. I wanted the focus of my brunch to be great company and food. 

For the menu, I had family classics such as a honey ham, deviled eggs, red potatoes, and quiche. I also mixed it up and had spiked banana bread, Callie's Hot Little Biscuits, specked yellow cake, fruit tarts, nest brownies from William-Sonoma, and tea sandwiches. I will be sharing several of those recipes later on The Sip. 

How do you celebrate Easter?

Spring Bar Refresh

Spring

Although it is still technically winter, this weekend temperatures were in the 70's in Tennessee, which means it is time to add a few touches of spring to my bar area. Jackson Morgan's newest flavor, banana pudding is the perfect spring drink and looks lovely on any bar.

Below are a few of my favorite items to refresh your bar area for spring, I LOVE the pineapple decanter and adorable Easter pillow. A boxwood wreath is always a favorite, new artwork can freshen up any space, and paper straws are an inexpensive way to change decor with the seasons. The navy bar from Serena and Lily is part bar cart and part party bucket which will transition well for summer entertaining. 

What is your favorite decor items to freshen up your home with the seasons?
