    Sweetened condensed milk or unsweetened?

    I know this is a dumb question but... This recipe calls for 3.5 oz instant pudding mix, we use sugar-free instant & the box says 0.9 oz. to yield 4.5 cups pudding. I'm no mathematician, how many boxes should I use??? Sorry to be so out of touch. Thank you...

    I make my banana pudding the same way, but instead of vanilla wafers, I use Italian lady finger cookies. Same as you would use for tira misu. Better flavor and texture and it really dresses up the dish. Gets big wows all the time.

    This is soooo good! I topped it with vanilla cookie crumbs and pecan pieces. Thanks for the recipe. Very pretty dish also.

    WOW!!!! That's the only word that's appropriate for this wonderful pudding. Super-easy to put together and lovely to the tastebuds! I did use instant vanilla pudding as I was out of banana. Next time, I'll have the banana on hand, but probably won't make much difference-You can't improve on perfection!!! Kudos to you, Jeanette G. We really enjoyed this dish! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Soo good! Easy to put together and delicious. It turns out super fluffy and creamy. Will be making again and again.

    Very fast and easy. It makes a lot. Could easily serve more than eight. I increased the banana slices, using 1.5 bananas. It's even good the day after even though the wafers get a little soft.

    Use Vanilla Pudding and Mix it with 2 blackened bananas and 2 Tbsp of Sour Cream. This provides a richer natural banana flavor. Just be sure to use less ripe bananas for the slices to provide a good contrast and prevent the flavors from blending in to mush.

    This is delicious dessert and so fast and easy to make. I take it to church dinners. I change the whipping cream to Kool Whip. It folds in very easy and is fast to mix.

    This is the best banana pudding I have ever tasted, I use this recipe all the time. I looked for weeks trying to find a banana pudding recipe that actually used banana pudding instead of vanilla pudding, and this one is perfect!

    This is a very nice pudding...My DH absolutely loved this....I didn't have any whipping cream so I used cool whip instead...and garnished with toasted coconut flakes, it turned out excellant. What an intense flavour. The banana slices and cookies just added to the overall experience. Many thanks Jeanette G. I will definitely be making this again and again.

    I make this dessert very often and take them to church dinners. Everyone loves it but I c


My name is Jeanette and I was born and raised in Houston, Texas! I came across this website one day while doing a search on the computer for a really good salisbury steak recipe (which came out great...thanks to recipe# 23811) Since then, I make it a daily routine to log into Recipezaar at least 2 or 3 times a day. I feel like I've viewed every recipe in here but to my amazement I always find myself printing a recipe that I must have overlooked. My Recipezaar collection of recipes has gotten so big that I had to make a special binder just to keep track of all the new recipes that I have printed out. I love trying out new recipes on my husband and to tell you the truth he doesn't mind at all...what a good husband! For a while there it felt like I was cooking the same thing over and over each week. Not anymore though...thanks to all of you and Recipezaar :)
