Moving to the south I have discovered many new things that that I love! I Probably don’t need them in my life as much as I like but on occasion we like to splurge! That being said, Yes Banana Pudding…. Amazing is all I can say! Why I never had this before until I moved here I don’t know but I must share this yummy easy recipe with everyone! Oh and by the way Sweet tea in the south is Heaven!
If you’re throwing a party — this is something light and sweet you can make. Preparation is easy and fast. If you have kids you can have your kids help lay the cookies down in the layering process. Usually I have seen banana pudding served in a bowl or platter but you can have fun with this! I layered mine in wine glasses and topped with whip cream and placed a cookie and some cookie crumbs to dress it up. You can make them in mason jars if you have the little mason jars that would also be cute!
If you decide to pour yours in glasses I just used a ladle to pour the pudding mixture in. Don’t worry if you get some on the sides you can clean it off and your going to top with whip cream anyway! (Note I wait until I am ready to take out dessert because the whip cream will soften up)
There are many different types of banana pudding recipes out there, I have tried a few but this is my favorite!
Banana Pudding Recipe
1 large pkg Instant vanilla pudding,
2 1/2 cups cold milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
1 container whipped topping, (16 ounces)
sliced bananas ( about 5-6 Bananas)
vanilla wafer cookies
Mix pudding and milk; add condensed milk. Blend it up add whipped topping blend until your filling has no lumps
Now you just layer your cookies down, top with bananas, pour pudding on top and repeat layers. For the top I lay my cookies down and crush a few all over. If you want to dress up your pudding, you can put them in glasses or mason jars for a cute look! Just do the same layering method. For my wine glass I added whip cream to the top and dressed it up with a cookie and some crumbs!
Set in your refrigerator, you can eat this a few hours after being in the refrigerator but its best made the night before!
