The holidays are the perfect time for certain desserts. If you are a fan of light and fluffy banana pudding, that offers a good mix of pudding, wafers, and banana slices, then you’ve got to check out this recipe. It was inspired by Cook On A Shoestring food bloggers David & Martha Cox. It is super easy to make and my family loves it!

what you need
1 bunch of ripe bananas
4 cups of milk
1 small container of whipped topping
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1 box of vanilla wafers
how to make it
Use wire whisk to beat 2 boxes of instant vanilla pudding mix with 4 cups of cold milk. Whisk for 2 minutes and place in fridge for 5 minutes to set.
Take pudding out of fridge and fold in one container of whipped topping and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix until soft and light.
Slice bananas. Create first layer with vanilla wafers inside a deep medium-sized pan. Next add a layer of bananas and then pour fluffy pudding mixture. Repeat layers neatly and evenly until you use all of the pudding.
Sprinkle vanilla wafer crumbles over top layer of pudding. Feel free to add a dollop of whipped topping in the middle. Cover pudding and place in fridge overnight to soften wafers.
- Consider garnishing with a few sprinkles of coconut flakes or adding banana slices (that have been dipped in lemon juice to prevent darkening) immediately before serving.
- If you enjoy your wafers soft, 7-8 hours is an ideal length of time to place in fridge before eating.
- Prepare the dessert with love. Never make food dishes while angry. 😉
