Ready In:




  • Mix pudding according to package directions.
  • let stand while you slice the bananas. I use an egg slicer to get nice even slices, not to mention it goes so much faster.
  • add sweet condensed milk to pudding mixture and mix very well.
  • add cool whip and mix well.
  • Layer wafers, sliced bananas then pudding in a punch bowl. I usually get 3-4 layers but it depends on how thick you make them, its totally up to you.
  • Let stand overnight or at least 4-6 hours so it really gets that banana flavor.
  • You can use more or less wafers depending on your taste and i always add the top layer just before serving so that they are still crisp. You can get creative with the wafers and really make a nice presentation.

    This is a magnificent recipe. My husband is a fan of banana pudding. He loved this one and said it tasted like it was made from scratch. I made it by the recipe the first time. Then, trying for a healthy version, I used reduced fat vanilla wafers, fat free condensed milk, sugar free/ fat free pudding mix, lite cool whip and skim milk. We could not tell the difference. It was still delicious. This one is a keeper!!!

    Thanks for helping make our fourth of July party a success. People gravitated to this pudding, and it was one of the first bowls to be emptied. An easy summer treat, and so simple to make.
