If you live in the South, you've gotta know a good banana pudding recipe. If you live in the South and are a busy mom, you need to have a really good recipe...but it better be easy! So, here's a very creamy, easy banana pudding recipe that will win you over.
2 – 3.4 oz. boxes of instant vanilla pudding
4 cups cold milk
1 – 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups whipping cream, whipped
12-oz box of vanilla wafers
In a large bowl, combine instant vanilla pudding with milk. Whisk to blend. Add sweetened condensed milk and 3/4 of the whipped cream and whisk to blend again.
In a large bowl or 9” x 13” pan, arrange one layer of vanilla wafers, then top with a layer of sliced bananas. Then top with half of the pudding mixture. (Drizzle some chocolate sauce if desired.) Repeat the layers, beginning with the vanilla wafers and ending with the pudding mix. Then add the last 1/4 of the whipped cream and crumble a few vanilla wafers on top, if you wish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
