Banana Pudding

Banana Pudding is truly one of my all time favorite desserts. Growing up, whenever we would visit my grandmother’s house, whether it was a holiday or a Sunday morning after church, she would always have banana pudding ready and waiting for us to dive into for dessert. Still today whenever my mom’s side of the family gets together someone will provide the Banana Pudding. As soon as the  pudding is unveiled the mad dash begins.

This is hands down the best no bake banana pudding around. It can be made up to a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Banana Pudding
Yields 8-10 servings

1 can sweet condensed milk (14oz)
– 1 1/2 cups cold water
– 1 package instant vanilla pudding (5.1 oz. box)
– 2 containers of cool whip
– vanilla wafers
– 3-4 bananas

– Mix water, milk and pudding mix in a bowl and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Fold in 1 container of the whip cream.

– In a 9 x 13 casserole dish cover the bottom with vanilla wafers, add half of the pudding mixture over top, then add a layer of bananas. Repeat by adding another layer of vanilla wafers, the remaining pudding mixture and banana slices.

– Add the other container of whip cream as a topping.

– Chill until ready to serve

    Really, water and not milk? Hmmmm…I’m making this today but I’m afraid to try it with water!

    Yes Water. Trust me. Let me know what you think.

    Hmmm…I’ll have to try this because I must admit, I am a firm believer that “real” banana pudding is homemade, not instant. I’ll give it a shot though to have in a pinch. Pretty sure my Mother would have a big frown for me if I actually made instant pudding though. It does look pretty!

    […] 5. The weekendWe have a fun yet very busy weekend ahead of us. It all starts tomorrow morning as I attend a cooking class that Jason bought for me last Christmas. The theme of the class is ”Thai one on” where we will be learning how to make Thai food and pairing it with different wine selections. This was the perfect gift for me and I have been looking forward to cashing in my coupon since I received it. After class the remainder of our day will be spent getting ready for Sunday’s festivities. Our little peanut is getting baptized. It is going to be a very special day and we have lots of family planning to attend church with us that morning. Afterwards everyone is coming back here for a good old southern style lunch consisting of BBQ, lots of sides and banana pudding. […]
