Banana Pudding

For the 4th of July I made banana pudding with a recipe from Eagle Brand's website. It's only a slight variation of the banana pudding my mom always makes, and it always gets lots of attention when you take it to a get-together.

The ingredients are as follows:

* 1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
* 1 1/2 cups cold water
* 1 (4-serving size) package instant vanilla pudding mix
* 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream, whipped
* 36 vanilla wafers (1 medium box)
* 3 medium bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice

Whisk together the can of condensed milk and the cold water in a medium bowl

Add the box of pudding and mix until well-blended. Let the mixture chill in the fridge for 5 minutes

While the mixture is chilling, cut up 3-4 medium sized bananas into slices. I didn't soak mine in lemon juice, though. After 5 minutes, remove the mixture from the fridge and fold in 1 tub of CoolWhip (I used this instead of the heavy cream)

Then layer the ingredients, starting with the pudding mixture

Then the vanilla wafers on top of that

Then finishing with the sliced bananas

Continue layering the ingredients until you reach the top of the trifle dish (or you run out of ingredients)

I ended with sliced bananas and crushed vanilla wafers to make it look pretty. :)
The picture is a doubled recipe, because it will be feeding a lot of people. It makes about 20 servings.


  1. Yum! There is nothing better than cold banana pudding on a hot summer day!

  2. I completely agree...The bowl was completely empty after the party!
