This was a nice yummy dessert, that was enjoyed in our family! The banana custard filling was awesome! It was sweet, thick and pure bananalicious! :) Loved it and will make this again often filling all sorts of things. lol
I made my own graham crackers using 100% Whole Wheat Graham Crackers or Pie Crust, which worked out very nicely.
I, too, wish I had baked the meringue in a circle on the baking sheet as it somehow never crisped up completely. It stayed a bit soggy in the middle despite being brown and crusty on the outside. Ah well, next time...
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a keeper with us, Elmotoo!

Yummy! I skipped the ground graham crackers on this. I think I'll try it with strawberries next time.

Beth - This was just wonderful. I wanted to make just a small amount so I made a small batch in little individual shells in Pyrex custard cups. Also used fat-free pudding and low-fat grahams. Wish I had a little bit of chocolate sauce to drizzle on top as that would have sent this over the edge.

This is so good! My dh was supposed to take the meringue out of the oven for me, but forgot! So when I got home he had made another meringue---any recipe easy enough for my husband to make deserves 5 stars! I buy my pudding in bulk, and it called for 1 c. pudding mix to 3 c. milk, so that's what I used. A yummy dessert that won't last long at our house; thanks!

This was a very nice, light tasting desert. I think I should have followed Fairy Nuff's advice and cooked this as per a pavlova as it didn't have quite the texture I'm used to. I used kiwi fruit instead of bananas; everyone like this very much, thanks for posting!

I saw this recipe and knew I just had to try it! The meringue reminded me so much of our Aussie Pavlova - a dessert that is so loved by my family. I did make some changes...lol..the most notable being that I used strawberries rather than bananas. Also I spread the meringue mix, in a circle, on a baking tray and made the sides higher to make room for the pudding mix. The entire thing was demolished within half an hour - it's a wonderful tasting and impressive looking dessert!
