I have been asked to make this every year at Thanksgiving. Thought I would share my way of making banana pudding.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl beat together vanilla pudding mix and milk for 2-3 minutes until it begins to thicken. Blend in the sweetened condensed milk and mix until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract and fold in the thawed Cool Whip.
  2. In a 13x9x2 glass dish layer the bottom with Nilla wafers, add a layer of sliced bananas over top of wafers. Pour enough pudding mixture over top of the first layer of wafers and bananas to cover,leaving some pudding for more layers.
  3. Repeat layers of wafers,bananas and pudding.
  4. End with a few wafers on top.
  5. Cover and chill in refrigerator for several hours.

Really good and very easy. It's like my go to recipe with the addition of the sweetened condensed milk. Mine did not firm up well - no soupy but definitely does not look like the photos. Regardless, it's pudding so it's all good!! Next time I will add more Nilla wafers to make it stand up a bit more. By accident I picked up a box of the little wafers rather than the normal size. That may have been the issue with consistency.

I didn't have sweetened condensed milk, so I substituted evaporated milk with half a cup of sugar. It was the best I have had :D Great Recipe!!
