After slogging fifteen miles through rain and mud, comfort yourself with Grahma Nanna Nilla Pudding.
Crunchy graham crackers, warm melt-in-your-mouth banana slices, and vanilla pudding will make you feel like a kid getting special treatment in Grandma’s kitchen. It will take you back.

Pack each ingredient into a separate small plastic bag. I use 2 x 3 craft bags for the milk and pudding powders and 3 x 5 craft bags for the grahams and bananas. Enclose all bags in a larger zip lock bag to stay organized.
On the Trail:
Combine dried bananas with half of the water in pot. Light stove and warm for ten minutes over low flame. No need to boil – you just want the bananas to rehydrate and warm up.
Combine powdered milk with other half of cold water in a separate pot or cup and stir until mixed. NIDO® Instant Dry Whole Milk works well. Add instant pudding mix and stir briskly until smooth. Pudding will set in about five minutes.
Spoon out warm bananas over pudding. Top with Annie’s Bunny Grahams or crumbled graham crackers. Drizzle remaining banana juices on top.
