Ahhh. Comfort food at its very best is this recipe for Banana Pudding that uses a can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed Milk instead of regular milk. You’ll be as impressed as I was the first time I had it. Bananas of course, are in it and vanilla wafers too. You could even add some fresh sliced strawberries and fresh blueberries in it if you wanted to really boost it up. Just make it several hours before you need to serve it so the wafers soften. Serve it in a pretty glass bowl or individual glass serving dishes for an eye-catching and yummy dessert. Have fun and happy cooking!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed Milk (or any brand will work), NOT evaporated milk
- 1 ½ C cold water
- 1 (3 oz.) package Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
- 2 C Cool Whip
- 36 Vanilla Wafers, plus one more for garnish
- 3 medium firm bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice (to prevent from turning brown)
- Can of Redi Whip
- Mixing bowl
- 2 1/2 qt. glass serving bowl or glass parfait dishes
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and cold water. Add instant pudding and beat well with whisk. Chill for 10 minutes in refrigerator.
Fold in Cool Whip. Spoon 1 C of the pudding mixture into a 2 ½ quart pretty glass serving bowl, (you could use individual glass serving dishes if you wish and layer them the same—you could use tall glass parfaits too for a real pretty layered look).
Top with 1/3 EACH of the vanilla wafers, banana slices, and pudding. Repeat twice more till all used up, ending with the pudding.
Chill for several hours to soften the vanilla wafers before serving.
Garnish with Redi Whip topping all over the top and stick 1 more vanilla wafer out of the top of the whipped cream.
