How to Store Banana Dessert Recipes
This dessert is so good, you will want to make sure you do not waste a single bite. It is important that the dessert is stored properly. I make this banana dessert in individual cups, but it can also be made in a baking dish or in a large bowl. No matter how you make it, simply store it in the refrigerator. Since this dessert is not served in dishes that typically have lids, make sure you wrap it well in plastic. If you do have a lid, you can certainly use that to keep the banana dessert fresh.
How Long do Pudding Desserts Last
When pudding desserts are stored properly, they will last for up to 7 days in the refrigerator. I would be shocked if the pudding wasn’t eaten before it spoils, but maybe that is just in my house.
Can No Bake Banana Pudding be Frozen
If you find that there is more pudding than you can eat before it goes bad, you can freeze the pudding. If you have already made the pudding into individual servings. you want to wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and then again with aluminum foil. After it is frozen, you can add another layer of protection by putting the cups inside of freezer bags. Make sure whatever you are storing the pudding is freezer safe and will not shatter in the cold. If you have the pudding in a larger bowl, and not set up as the banana split dessert, simply add an airtight lid or wrap with plastic wrap then foil. You can also pour the pudding directly into a freezer bag for easier storage.
