I tagged this as a dessert but let’s be honest, banana pudding is appropriate all the time!
I bought myself 3 pounds of bananas on Sunday with the lofty goal that I would eat them all and lord hammercy I failed. Banana pudding and later tonight banana bread to the rescue.
Super easy to make:
1 box vanilla wafers (you won’t use the whole box)
2 bananas RIPE (not overripe like banana bread, you want these suckers firm)
1 4 oz. box banana cream pudding made according to directions (it’s literally just adding 2 cups of milk and whisking)
1 small container Cool Whip (or if you’re ambitious make your own)
I mean, you can make it in a bowl that’s not clear but half the bragging rights to this dish are how lovely they stack up in the see thru bowl
Layer as follows:
- Nilla wafers on the bottom and one row around the perimeter
- Cool Whip
Repeat 1-4 based on how big your bowl is and end with a Cool Whip layer
Crush a handful of Nilla wafers and garnish the top with them.
