This banana pudding recipe is on the inside of the vanilla wafer box and is so easy, even for me. It's good when you first make it, much better the next day, and to die for the day after, if any of it is still around.
I have used regular box pudding instead of instant to make this since that is what I had. It worked out just fine.
Easy Southern Banana Pudding
3 cups cold milk (any kind works fine, I usually use skim or 1 percent)
2 pkg. vanilla pudding
Vanilla wafers (about 30)
3 bananas, sliced in round pieces
1 tub whipped topping, thawed
Pour milk in a large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes. (If you are using the kind you cook, just prepare it according to package directions and you are good to go!)
Arrange half the wafers on bottom and up side of 2-qt serving bowl. Add layers of half of each the banana slices and pudding. Repeat all layers. Spread whipped topping over pudding.
Refrigerate 3 hours or until ready to serve. Store leftover pudding in refrigerator.
