So this weekend a craving struck...for banana pudding. I combined a few recipes and added my own touches to make this delicious dessert.
1 1/2 cups cold water
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
3.4 oz Banana cream pudding mix, instant
3 cups whipping cream
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 box Nilla wafers
4-5 ripe bananas, sliced
Start by beating the cold water and sweetened condensed milk until combined. Add in the pudding mix and beat until combined. Cover and refrigerate until set. I did 15 minutes in the fridge, 10 minutes in the freezer...because I was impatient. Beat the whipping cream in a separate bowl for 4-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form in the cream. Fold the pudding into the whipping cream. Stir in the vanilla until all ingredients are mixed. Now it's time to start assembling!
Grab a trifle bowl and start with a layer of Nilla wafers. Add a layer of banana slices. Top with a third of the banana cream mixture. Repeat layers until your ingredients have run out. Cover and refrigerate for 4-8 hours. Or refrigerate for 1 hour and eat a bowl immediately after supper if you just can't wait. There will be plenty left to sit for 4-8 hours and eat the next day:)
