THE BEST BANANA PUDDING

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened to room temp.
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (5 oz) package Instant vanilla pudding mix, larger box
  • 3 cups milk, 2 % or higher
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (8 oz) tub whipped topping (COOL WHIP), thawed
  • 1 (11 oz) box Nilla wafers
  • 5-7 bananas, peeled and sliced

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add in sweetened condensed milk, pudding mix, milk and vanilla extract.
  • Mix until combined well.
  • Finally, stir in half of the whipped topping.
  • To layer: place one-third of the vanilla wafers in a layer on the bottom of a trifle dish, large bowl or a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Add a layer of bananas.
  • Then pour one-third of the pudding mixture on top (enough to cover all the bananas).
  • Continue with two more layers.
  • Top with remaining whipped topping.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one to two hours before serving so it can thicken up and the wafers can soften.
