Sometimes you just need some banana pudding or as we used to call it, Naner Pudd'n! It's cool. It's creamy. It's just what you need on a warm summer evening.
Now I am going to give you my Aunt Sara's recipe. Just besure to keep it to yourself because if she finds out, she will go upside my head!
Here are the ingredients:
1 large package Jello instant pudding, vanilla or banana cream flavor 1 cup of cold milk 1 cup sweetened condensed milk 1/2 container Cool Whip 1 tsp Pure Vanilla extract (brandy works in a pinch)
1 package vanilla wafers 2 large bananas, sliced
Pour the pudding mix into a mixing bowl and add the cold milk. Mix by hand or with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add the condensed milk and vanilla and mix until the mixture strats to thicken (about another minute). Fold in the Cool Whip and mix until it is smooth an fully incorporated.
In the bottom of a large bowl or casserole dish, put 1 layer of vanilla wafers. Next, put a layer of bananas. Pour in half of the pudding and smooth it out so it covers all of the bananas and cookies. Repeat with more cookies, bananas and the rest of the pudding. Add a few cookies on top to decorate. Put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to chill. I suggest you hide it in the back because they tend to disappear when you aren't looking!
