15 Southern Food Ideas To Serve with Patti LaBelle’s Banana Pudding

I love a good dessert. I’m also a huge fan of southern style cooking. I’ll be honest, I don’t cook around my house, but I will pull up a seat to any table that serves fantastic food. I’m grateful to have been around women who loved to get down and dirty in the kitchen. Going to my Grandma’s house during the holidays was the best part of Christmas. When you walked in the door, you would smell food. The days leading up to Thanksgiving or Christmas you would find her in the kitchen working on side dishes, prepping the turkey, and making dessert after dessert. We would have sweet potato pies, pecan pies, apple pies, peach cobblers, fudge, cookies, and even banana pudding.

Let me put this out there. I am not a fan of banana pudding. There I said it! And I am unapologetic and matter of fact about my position. I have never been a fan of this type of pudding. Never. Nope. Nada. So even as a kid when the banana pudding was offered, I would turn my nose up and keep it moving. Go ahead and call me a banana pudding hater because I’ve earned it. So, when I was given an opportunity to review Patti LaBelle’s banana pudding in my mind I had already decided not to like it.

Now, y’all might remember how all the buzz around Patti Labelle’s Sweet Potato Pie (which you can also find at Walmart).

As I entered Walmart and made my way over to pick up my very own Patti LaBelle banana pudding, I may have given it a bit of side eye. I couldn’t help, mainly because I haven’t tasted a banana pudding that did it for me. Even after I returned home, I placed the banana pudding into the fridge and almost forgot about it until tonight.

Here it goes. I removed the strand of plastic that kept the top down on the package, I leaned in and sniffed. It smelled okay. I mean, it smelled like bananas. Now, it was time to do the deed. I grabbed a large spoon and scooped out two portions and placed them into bowls. I stuck out my tongue and opened my mouth. And guess what? I got a chance to taste what is to date, the best banana pudding I have ever tasted! In my eyes, Patti LaBelle has redeemed herself, and my mouth is very happy. Not bad, not at all.

So what does it taste like? Let me break it down to ya!

It’s layers of rich banana pudding, with crumbled vanilla wafers, and a creamy banana mousse. It’s then topped with more vanilla wafers. I found it to be sweet, which I loved. It has a nice texture to it, and you can taste all of the creamy goodness in the banana mousse. For an additional touch, add a few slices of banana on top. Patti’s banana pudding started with a family recipe, and it is made with quality ingredients with an authentic, home-style taste.
