Whenever my mom’s family got together as I was growing up, there was always a banana pudding on the dessert table.
Thinking of those days, as I often do, I decided I would make one for my family on this holiday weekend, no company, just the three of us!
Instead of a bowl, I used small glasses. Mason jars would also work and be kinda festive!
I used the mini vanilla wafers, which better fit my small glasses. Some folks use banana pudding instead of vanilla, or even half vanilla and half banana.
There are many variations of banana pudding out there, but for those who have never made one, this is the really simple recipe that I use.
2 packages of instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz size)
4 cups of milk
4 small bananas, sliced
1 box Mini vanilla wafers
Cool Whip for the top! (thawed)
Mix the pudding with the milk as instructed on the pudding package. Refrigerate for an hour or so. When ready, start layering the wafers, sliced bananas, and then the pudding. Repeat layers until you get to the top, leaving a little room for the Cool Whip before serving,
Refrigerate any extras.
Hope you all make a yummy treat this holiday weekend!
Let all of us remember our troops and all those who have lost their lives protecting and serving this country we love so much.
Blessings and love!
