Creamy vanilla pudding layered with shortbread cookies and bananas paired with Malibu and Jameson make this Boozy Banana Pudding the perfect grown-up treat!

I’ve never made homemade Boozy Banana Pudding before.  To be honest, I did not really think it was a thing that people did because all I knew was those little pudding mix boxes from the baking aisle at the grocery store.

When I thought about making banana pudding from scratch, I reached out to my friends on social media and asked them what made their favorite banana pudding so amazing.  

Every person answered that the pudding had to be made from scratch and contain at least rum.

So that’s what I did.  I made a Boozy Banana Pudding from scratch featuring Malibu, an original coconut rum from the Caribbean, where the spirit of summer shines all year round, and Jameson,  a blend of pot still and grain whiskey from Ireland that is triple distilled; and remarkably smooth.

Making the pudding for this Boozy Banana Pudding isn’t a difficult undertaking.  In a sturdy medium size pot, combine sugar, corn starch, salt and egg yolks. 

 blend of pot still and grain whiskey. Triple distilled, remarkably smooth, and unmistakably Jameson from Ireland.

Whisk all those ingredients together until you get what looks like a clumpy mess.  No worries, though, because it will loosen up as soon as you add the milk.

Pour in the milk and whisk together over medium heat until the sugar and eggs dissolve and the mixture is smooth.

You’ll want to pay very close attention to this next part.  I made the mistake of stepping away and burnt the pudding.  You don’t want that.  Learn from my mistake and DO NOT STEP AWAY for the next 5-7 minutes!

Whisk, whisk, whisk your little heart out until the mixture comes to a simmer and begins to thicken.  As soon as the pudding begins to thicken up (it happens quick and you’ll have mere seconds before it burns) remove it from the heat and whisk until thick.

This next part you'll want to pay very close attention to.  I made the mistake of 

Next up is the butter, vanilla paste, and Malibu. 

The rum what gives this Boozy Banana Pudding it’s distinct flavor and the butter ensure it will be velvety smooth.    

This next part you'll want to pay very close attention to.  I made the mistake of 

You’ll whisk all of that together while the pudding is still warm.  Transfer the entire mixture to a large glass bowl. 

Make sure to scrape down the pot to ensure every last drop of pudding gets in the bowl!

Finally, press a piece of plastic wrap over the pudding so that a film does not form on top while chilling.  Place bowl in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours so that the flavors have time to form and the pudding sets. 

When you’re ready to serve the boozy banana pudding, get 4 mason jars, shortbread cookies, bananas, and make the Jameson whipped cream.

I liked using shortbread cookies for this Boozy Banana Pudding because they seemed to hold up a lot better than the traditional vanilla cookies that are normally used. 

There is a lot of moisture sitting on top of the pudding and under the bananas and having a cookie that is not only delicious but will stand up to that is essential in creating the perfect Boozy Banana Pudding.

Assembling these desserts is quick and easy.  Simply layer pudding, cookies, bananas three times.  Add a dollop of Jameson whipped cream to the top, sprinkle cinnamon and garnish with a cookie and banana.  

Pure Boozy Banana Pudding Perfection.

Serve the Boozy Banana Pudding immediately.  You can store them overnight if you have extra, but the cookies will get a bit soggy the next day.  

My husband enjoyed his delicious dessert with a glass of Jameson on the rocks and said it was the perfect night cap for his long day.

The perfect drink to go with this Boozy Banana Pudding needs to be light and refreshing.  

A Rum Raspberry Spritzer will cool you down on the hottest day and is the perfect sidekick to the banana pudding.

To make the Rum Raspberry Spritzer, you’ll need:

  • Malibu Rum
  • Raspberry Seltzer Water
  • Fresh Raspberries
  • Ice

Depending on how strong you like your drinks, pour 1-2oz of Malibu into a glass filled with berries and ice.  Fill the glass with the bubbly water and give it a quick stir with a spoon. Pop in a straw and enjoy!

This spritzer could be easily changed using any flavor seltzer water and any fruit you like!  Pick your favorite flavors, the combination possibilities are endless!

Boozy Banana Pudding



  • Author:
    Betsy Eves

  • Prep Time:
    4 hours, 30 minutes

  • Cook Time:
    10 minutes

  • Total Time:
    4 hours 40 minutes

  • Yield:
    4 desserts

Ingredients

Pudding

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • scant 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 2 Tbsp Malibu

Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Jameson

Assembly

  • 3 large bananas, sliced
  • 2 boxes shortbread cookies  (the red box)

Instructions

Pudding

  1. In a heavy bottom medium pot, combine the sugar, salt, eggs, and corn starch with a whisk.
  2. Turn on the heat to medium and add in the milk.  Whisk to combine and until smooth.
  3. Keep whisking for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture simmers and begins to thicken.
    NOTE: Do not step away during this part!  The mixture burns easily when not being whisked!
  4. Once it thickens up, remove from the heat and continue whisking for another minute.
  5. Add the butter, Malibu and vanilla paste and whisk to combine.
  6. Transfer the pudding into a large glass bowl.  Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the pudding so a film doesn’t form while chilling.
  7. Chill for 4 hours.

Whipped Cream

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer with the whisk attachment, combine the cream, sugar and Jameson.
  2. Whisk on high for 2-3 minutes or until the cream stiffens.
  3. Mix until you reach your desired whipped cream consistency

Assembly

  1. Scoop chilled pudding into a mason jar filling about a quarter of the jar.
  2. Layer cookies then bananas.
    NOTE: Try to layer the bananas flat so it creates a boundary for the next layer of pudding.
  3. Repeat pudding, cookies, bananas.
  4. Finish it off with one final scoop of pudding, a dollop of whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon, cookie piece and banana slice.
  5. Serve immediately.

Friday Inspiration, Vol. 142

“The rules of our running group is that if I collapse, you make sure I’m dead before you call 911.” (video)

A fascinating use of maps and graphics to show how the United States uses its land (at least the Lower 48, anyway)

Jake Thompson of Jake Likes Onions, one of my favorite cartoonists, has a new book available for pre-order.

A bestselling author wrestles with the bittersweetness of his young son’s learning to read on his own.

“The races I prefer are the long ones so there’s plenty of time for entertaining myself with lots of types of thoughts. A lot of time when it’s getting harder, it will just become focused on moving and reminding myself that I’m fine. I guess if I had a mantra it might just be you’re fine, you’re fine, you’re doing fine, this is fine.”
record-setting ultrarunner Courtney Dauwalter

Is emotional intelligence just as important as training for endurance races?

Here’s the trailer for Free Solo, the Nat Geo documentary about Alex Honnold.

“[Gwyneth Paltrow’s] newsletter was at first kind of mainstream New Age-forward. It had some kooky stuff in it, but nothing totally outrageous. It was concerned with basic wellness causes, like detoxes and cleanses and meditation. It wasn’t until 2014 that it began to resemble the thing it is now, a wellspring of both totally legitimate wellness tips and completely bonkers magical thinking: advice from psychotherapists and advice from doctors about how much Vitamin D to take (answer: a lot! Too much!) and vitamins for sale and body brushing and dieting and the afterlife and crystals and I swear to God something called Psychic Vampire Repellent, which is a ‘sprayable elixir’ that uses ‘gem healing’ to something something ‘bad vibes.’”

Hiking Meetup Groups You Probably Shouldn’t Join

LOCAL SINGLES HIKING GROUP
So, are you single? So are we! And we’re always looking for more attractive, fit, single folks to join our weekly hiking group. We wouldn’t call our hikes a dating or matchmaking opportunity—but we are always looking for more attractive, single, attractive folks who want to have a good time! If you’re looking for a fun bunch of hikers to hit the trails with, please email a headshot and a brief bio to Kevin, our group leader, who is single, and also the only member of the group right now. If you don’t like hiking but are single, Kevin is also on Tinder.

“HUNTING FOR A GOOD TIME” MEETUP
We’re an easygoing yet bloodthirsty group of hikers who meet periodically to hunt a human being in the style of the 1994 Gary Busey/Ice T film Surviving the Game. If you’re interested in “meeting up” with our fun crew, you will have a wonderful weekend of being tracked by hunters who have paid hefty sums for the chance at the “ultimate hunt”—you! If you live through the weekend, we’ll be surprised, and to be honest, a little disappointed, but it’ll be a thrilling couple days for you!

THE BIGGEST WEEKLY HIKING MEETUP IN THE METRO AREA
We love hiking, and we love hiking in a big group! Every Saturday, we meet at a trailhead at 6:45 a.m. to take over the place. If it’s your first time joining us, you’ll never remember everyone’s names—there are anywhere from 30 to 60 of us, depending on the weekend. But we’re fun! Unless you’re not part of our group and you happen to pick the same trailhead, in which case you’ll have to step off the trail for just a minute as we pass (OK, more like two or three minutes—remember, there are a few dozen of us). Hope you can join us some weekend and experience our total domination of every other user group in the area!

GARY’S HIKING MEETUP
We meet every other Saturday at a different trail within two hours of the city to listen to Gary tell the same 25 stories about all the cool things he’s done in life. Sometimes Gary talks about backpacking and climbing trips he did a few years ago, sometimes he talks about his career in sales, and sometimes he tells stories that are designed to illustrate how much more of an alpha male he is than other men, but the central theme is always the same: Gary is cool. If you’re at the back of the group, you may get to talk to other members of our group, but if you’re within 20 or so feet of Gary, you will have a great opportunity to hear a lot about Gary. Gary will almost never tell the same story twice in the same weekend, but stories will be repeated from week to week. If you’re new here, Gary will ask a couple brief questions about your life, not to learn more about you, but to provide a jumping-off point to talk about himself.

“SEAT OF OUR PANTS” HIKERS
If you’re not much of a planner, you’ll love our group—we never decide anything until the last minute lol! We meet up every other Sunday, and don’t pick a trail, a meeting place, or a meeting time, until sometime on Sunday morning, when someone starts a mass text between all our current group members. And then, all 23 of us collectively hash out a plan via text messages. Since we have so many trails nearby, it can be hard to decide! But don’t worry, we can usually agree on something within an hour and a half or so of texting back and forth. And then, most of us show up and hike!

STEEP SCRAMBLERS OF _________
We’re not so much a hiking group, since we get together every few weeks to free solo multipitch rock climbing routes 5.12 and above, but we do have to hike to the base of the routes we solo, so there’s that. We wouldn’t call what we do “dangerous,” but there are only three of us now, and there used to be seven of us. Actually, nine, if you count those couple folks who only joined us once, and then, well, you know.

NIGHT HIKING GROUP
Ve meet every other Vednesday evening after sundown, rising from our coffins for a casual few hours on the trail. You may notice ve all vear capes, have somewhat pale skin for a group of outdoor enthusiasts, and have rather elongated eye teeth. Ve vould love to get to know you on one of our night hikes on one of the dark, secluded trails near the metro area. Ve love short hike with some solitude, and ve’d love for you to bring your friends, as long as they are filled with blood.

—Brendan

A “Heart By Heart” with Steve Fossen

Interview by Danny Coleman

Heart By Heart plays a lot of Heart music,” says original Heart bassist Steve Fossen. We play mostly from the 70’s catalog, we do a few 80’s songs and we try to play the music note for note as it was recorded and written.”  

Steve Fossen and drummer Mike DeRosier are 2013 Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees and given the success which they achieved with Heart, a trip to the hallowed halls was inevitable.  

Fossen was there from the beginning, forming what would become the nucleus of the future juggernaut way back in 1967 when he and the Fisher brothers formed The Army. Bands come and go, change directions and personnel, some stay the same and others like Heart become the product of morphing over time.  

Unfortunately, Fossen and DeRosier’s time with the band ended circa 1982, well after the group was entrenched in accolades, massive fans, hits and million selling albums but Fossen and some of the earliest members have kept in touch and over the years have performed together; such is the case now with Heart By Heart. Fossen tells the story of the group’s forming and like most great rock ‘n’ roll tales it just all kind of fell into place. 

“Back in 2008, Roger Fisher, Mike Derozier and I wanted to play some Heart songs at a party that we were doing downtown and we had heard about Somar; she had  a Heart tribute band that she was playing in called, “Straight On.” We heard that she could sing the Heart material and she knew it so we had her come and sing with us and she’s a very intelligent and nice person so we got along well. That was in February and then over the course of the spring and summer I would run into her at different parties and clubs and we developed a friendship and then that evolved into a romance and once we were romantically connected we started a bass and vocal duo and we’d play songs like, “Dog and Butterfly,” “Crazy On You,” “Alone” and at first we started out at friend’s dinner parties and then evolved into bistros; we even did a wedding and a funeral and we were having a lot of fun just doing that. Then people heard about it and we got a call from a booking agent from Alaska and he called us and wanted us to open up for Dwight Yoakam at a show he was doing in Anchorage and we thought that a duo would be a little light to open a show so we asked Mike Derozier and Randy Hansen our original guitar player to help us out and we put together a 45 minute set and we were all set to go to Alaska and then at the last minute Dwight Yoakam decided not to play the show but we had a band; so thank you Dwight (laughs). Then some friends of ours had a benefit for, “Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness” and we raised a good amount of money and from that gig a lot of booking agents heard about us and started booking us around Seattle and Tacoma areas and the next thing you know we were playing shows all over the place. We started coming back to the East Coast about four years ago and now this year we’ve branched out to the Midwest and we did Florida, California, Virginia, Maryland, New York and now Pennsylvania.” 

August 9 sees Heart By Heart at The Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA for an 8 p.m. show followed by an already sold out show on August 13 in Mount Gretna. Tickets range from a scant $15 to around $45 between the two venues. 

heart by heart

Fossen seems totally at ease with the lineup and seems to be having an unexpected resurgence in not only the band’s travel itinerary but a rebirth of Heart’s music; something he says his former band mates, the Wilson sisters are OK with. “We have Mike DeRosier our drummer, we have Somar Macek on lead vocals and she is also my wife, we have Lizzy Damont who does acoustic and electric guitars as well as piano, keyboards and backing vocals and Chad Quist on guitars. I spoke with Ann not too long ago and she was totally cool with it as long as we keep it true to the original works. Let’s put it this way, they’ve not given us any indication that they are not blessing it (laughs).” 

Heart by Heart is governed by the same philosophy today which Fossen and previous band mates employed over the years and that’s realizing that everyone is and has uniqueness. “You play clubs and the audiences are people just like every place you play and they’re very enthusiastic about your music but it’s a real confined and concentrated area and if you set your goals and standards high enough you’ll play good no matter how many people are out in the audience. So by the time we got to the point with Heart where we were playing 15,000 seat arenas we were so confident and such a finely tuned entity; I mean there was more pressure and everything but we could still pull it off because we had that experience under our belts. Our philosophy was that we were playing for basically one person at a time and I play for myself too because I have very high standards and I want to do as well as I can to present myself and my skills the best that I can but if you think about it you’re playing for one person at a time whether there’s 20 people or 300,000 in the crowd because everyone is experiencing your performance one person at a time. We always try our best to do our best and if you have that in mind and never take anything for granted and be as good as you know that you can be all of the other things will fall into place automatically.”  

He also has advice for up and coming bands and musicians who are out there trying to make it in the music biz, “Hold onto your dreams, work hard at it. Have faith because sometimes it’s going to be very discouraging and sometimes it’s going to be fun and you want to be in a position where any opportunity that comes along your band is ready to take advantage of that; when opportunity knocks you answer the door.” 

Opportunity knocks twice in Pennsylvania this week and here’s hoping that we answer the door to see these legendary musicians playing times legendary tunes.
