Homemade 'Nilla Wafers with Banana Pudding - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in #photograpy2 years ago

Who has a pudding dance?! Get it ready!

We're going to talk about Banana Pudding and Vanilla Wafers, or as some of us say 'Nilla Wafers,' but first,....

For those of you following me, you know I've been traveling this week in San Diego, CA. It has been SO MUCH fun. I am currently at the airport waiting on my flight home to North Idaho. Forgive me for taking a while to reply to the comments. I've already done one post about my trip, you can see it HERE, but I promise I'll have more travel posts coming soon, maybe even tomorrow.

Knowing I had my trip scheduled, I was able to get all of these photos ready before. And, I am really glad I did because I was way busier than I thought I'd be. I had these amazing plans to travel blog while traveling, way harder said than done.

I apologize in advance, I've got a little writer's block about my banana creation, I've got San Diego on the brain, but I'll do my best so bare with me.

I have a huge family and we almost always have bananas on hand. It's like we automatically grab a batch of bananas every time we go to the store. As a result, sometimes we end up too many ripe bananas, what a problem to have, right? By the way, we had this same exact problem while we lived in Chile so it's not just a 'first world problem.'

So, if any of you have that same problem, Banana Pudding is always a great idea to deal with those ripening bananas.

Tell me, who wants to take a go at making you're own Vanilla Wafers, a show of hands please? Trust me, these taste way better than anything you'll ever buy in the store, plus you can totally control the quality or the ingredients. Even if you don't want to make the accompanying Banana Pudding, you should totally try making the wafers.

I hope you've enjoyed the photos and more importantly, I hope this has given you inspiration.

Great post ..

Simple but looks delicious from the pictures
Thank you for sharing your recipe with us

Please help me grow

Wow... Yummy and delicious food. It is banana pudding. I love it. 'Coronado.'

ahh, you got it. I'll get you late tonight or in the morning, gotta board a plane.

You are genius, also your work @gringalicious


That looks so amazing! Your dishes always have an amazing color balance aswell!

thanks so much for the kind words @yummyrum

Mmmh, delicious!!
Greetings from Thailand, where the bananas are twice as sweet and tasty :)

Twice as sweet and tasty?! I have got to go verify this for myself, I'll be right there - LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by @connecteconomy

I am really curious about the recipe Coronado, lol. But seriously, I don't see the recipe in the comment section and this looks amazing, especially for someone who loves bananas like I do. However, those wafers remind me of cookies from back home, so I really would like the recipe Dear @gringalicious 🌸💖🌸

I just got home a few minutes ago, but I saw your comment and had to reply. @pariza was actually first so the recipe is posted above. Thanks so very much for commenting @lenasveganliving

My pleasure and thank you so much my Dear.............I am definitely bookmarking this recipe for later. Although, I will have to still figure out few details 🌸💖🌸

Banana pudding is literally one of my most favorite homemade treats. Ugh, I haven't had this in at least 3 years. Great content by the way!

I agree it looks fantastic it worth a dance.

Is that your pudding dance? If so, I like it

Thanks so much for commenting, I hope you give it a try

Mmm, @gringalicious that's delicious... I love bananas and waffles. I do love to eat,))))))). As always, your food is beyond praise. Because I want to eat it just by looking at your pictures!! You are also wonderful and properly photographed, so looking at the photo, and drooling!!!

very kind words, thanks so much @lolaspice

We have the same problem too - Bananas get too ripe before we could even finish them. What to do? Make banana bread, cake, muffins etc. It's funny how these treats get eaten faster than the bananas themselves. We wonder why?! hehehe This is another creation to add to the list for the 'unloved' bananas.

Hopefully, you'd enjoyed your time in San Diego! :)

all those are awesome, bread, muffins, etc. And, you're right, these treats go faster.

And thanks, my trip was a blast, absolutely loved it!! Stay tuned for some posts about it

This looks great!! This is something I could totally eat anytime of the day. I'm exited for you too about SD :D Steem on.

I love your pudding dance!!

OMG! Your recipes are so amazing and i didn't like bananas as much as you when you was a child, but now with this recipe how can i just take a look without try it. Thanks for sharing and have a good day ♥♥

So glad you liked it @injiskitchen, thanks so much for the great commenting

Wow! The wafers bananas looks so good! And seems too easy to make them , especially here in Mauritius we have so much bananas, even we don’t know how will prepare with them.
Good trip.

Hey @creativewoman, I am home now, I arrived late last night. Thanks so much for commenting and I hope this gives you some ideas. This a very 'USA' type dish, very traditional.

They look absolutely delicious🌟👍
also that is the thing most of the people they have no idea what to do with riped or overriped bananas ..so good idea😀
Me i love to do simple banana bread just mixing together riped bananas,some butter,flour ,egg and sugar or chocolate ,no need of mixer just whisk together and bake

Yaasssssss! Love this!

When I was a youngin' I used to make a version of this. These gorgeous photos bring back all those memories, I can practically taste it :)

So glad to have tuned in to the Steem Queens Talk and found you through it!

Following <3

thanks for the great commenting, and the follow. Sorry I wasn't able to make it to the talk with @aggroed. It was my last day in San Diego and a cousin I haven't seen in 6 years came to see me and my sister. I hope to make the next one. I am glad you found it and are now following

This is my alltime favorite. The way we make it down in the delta is making the pudding from scratch using a double-boiler and condensed milk. You talkin about wanting to slap your mama.

I hear what you're saying @mynsf. Thanks so much for commenting

it looks deliciously good perfectly made :)

thanks so much for your continued support @blazing

I've never thought to make my own vanilla wafers, that's a great idea...and probably pretty simple. Thanks for the inspiration!


I hope you give it a try and it turns out wonderful for you

thank you for sharing the food, good food for sure, and favorite food many people must @gringalicious

thanks so much for commenting @rayaa

welcome dear

I've never seen anyone make those vanilla wafers....I haven't had them since I was a kid - the boxed kind. My mom used to make us something similar but with vanilla pudding (from a box), sliced banana and the wafers like you served them. I know homemade is way better.

I love anything banana or lemon....just sayin' :)

banana or lemon - I got you covered. More of those coming in the future. Thanks so much for the great commenting @countrygirl

Your most welcome and I will look for lemon anything especially with summer coming up :)

I am always looking for ways to use my ripe bananas. I would love to have the recipe, my two boys would love it also 😋

I hope you give it a try @cbanks

Wow made me super hungry! I need to try this! Great post!

very nice movie post.

movie post, really? I love the mute button

very good post. I really like everything beautifully designed. I take an example from you. the cookies are very similar to what I was doing. as always, everything is beautifully sweet and delicious. I also want to make a cake for lovers and show you. Thanks again for the voice.

thanks so much for the great commenting @olegas89

My sister made egg pudding.

that's fantastic, thanks so much for telling me.

I often'm using ripe bananas in pastries too, thank you for idea with banana pudding! I am confident, it goes well with waffles )

fantastic, I am glad I was able to provide you with another option for your bananas, thanks @naditinkoff

great work by one and only you wow this was a fantastic experience to see

thanks so much for comemnting @cityslicker

Definitely interested in this recipe since you know I'll be tweaking it for allergies. 😉

And as for bananas, we always have a ton and if they don't get baked into chocolate chip banana bread or pancakes, they get frozen for soft serve or what my kids like to call Monkey Bites! Yum!

monkey bites, that's awesome, sounds like a future post to me

Changing the way of eating the banana ... And make several types ... This is called creativity.
Thank you.@gringalicious

I am glad you liked it @yagoub, thanks for commenting

Nice presentation and good shots along the way of making it cool work
