Banana pudding has to be my all time favorite Southern dessert. My mom's is the best! Nilla Wafers...bananas...from scratch pudding...topped with real meringue, hot out of the oven it can't be beat. Well it's not my mom's, but this recipe is still REALLY GOOD! And it's no bake and so simple...so simple this would be a great recipe to let the kids help out with.
Now I usually don't like desserts with instant pudding in them, but when you mix the pudding with sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, and cool whip...It doesn't taste so instant.
No Bake Banana Pudding
1- 11 oz box vanilla wafers (you will not use the entire box)
6 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1- 5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding
1- 8 oz package cream cheese
1- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1- 12 oz container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Line the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch dish with vanilla wafers; top with the sliced bananas. In a bowl combine the milk and vanilla pudding mix; mix with a hand mixer. In another bowl mix together the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture; add to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the pudding mixture over the bananas and top with vanilla wafers. Refrigerate until chilled. This tastes and looks best the day it is made.
Changing Subjects...on Tuesday evening, I'll be speaking with the Tuscaloosa Christian Writers Club...Talking about blogging, the basics of it...how to get started...that kind of stuff.
