When I was a little girl, my mom use to make this simple and easy dessert for me and I can still close my eyes and envision what it looked like in the mason jars on the refrigerator shelf. The great thing about this recipe is that it is no bake. You simply whip together a few ingredients and let them chill in the fridge until you are ready to eat. Be sure to cover it when in refrigerator to avoid the wafers from getting soggy. Here’s my recipe.
- 1 large package of instant vanilla pudding
- 2 1/2 cups of milk
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 14 oz
- 1 container of cool whip, 16 oz
- 4 bananas cut into pieces
- Vanilla Wafers
In a large mixing bowl, mix milk and instant pudding mix. Add condensed milk and blend well. Fold in half of the cool whip and alternate pudding, bananas, and vanilla wafers. Serve in a large pie plate or individual containers. Top with remaining cool whip and add bananas and vanilla wafers on top.
Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
