Monday Munchies: Banana Pudding

Banana puddingPardon the Lightning McQueen bowl and Gerber spoon – I mostly feed children!  This is one of my favorite dessert recipes.  It is quick, easy, and perfect for parties.  I made this with the leftover heavy whipping cream from last week’s Creamy Sausage Bowties and used it’s sugary goodness in an attempt to coerce my, then sick, children to eat.  All three little ones enjoy this dessert – there are no photos of Anna trying hers, as she was still pretty sick when I made it.

This is my mom’s recipe and I have no idea where it originated.  This is the only type of pudding Mike will eat, however, he prefers his without bananas (aka vanilla).

Banana Pudding

  • 3 bananas
  • vanilla wafers
  • 1 pkg. Instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

Beat whipping cream until fluffy. Mix other ingredients together in a large bowl, folding the fluffy cream in last. Line a large bowl with vanilla wafers. Slice bananas in a single layer on top. Add some of the pudding mixture. Continue to layer ingredients in bowl. Refrigerate.  If you plan to eat over several days, do not put banana slices in the bowl.  Slice fresh banana over the top right before serving.
