Banana Pudding Squares

 Ahhh, dessert. Following our Mother’s Day burger dinner, we HAD to have something sweet to follow. Now my family definitely enjoys a good dessert but everyone is also “watching what they eat.” Therefore, when I cook, I’m always trying to find a light or low-fat or low-calorie dessert to round out the meal.

In my Sunday afternoon quest for dessert recipes, I visited my favorite website ( I found this little jewel from Kraft Recipes and it was a hit!

I’m not sure my picture does this dessert justice. {It definitely doesn’t look like Kraft’s tidy photo!} But nevertheless this was definitely a square-ish lump of goodness.

Try this light recipe at your next get together!
