For my step-dad’s birthday this year he requested banana pudding instead of a cake. So, as usual, I went on the hunt for the perfect (and easiest) banana pudding recipe. I found this gem, and oh what a gem it is. This is really really good banana pudding. Everyone raved about how amazing it was and, of course, it was all eaten right up!
You Will Need:
-2 boxes of instant french vanilla pudding
-2.5 cups of milk
-16oz heavy whipping cream
– 1/3 cup powdered sugar
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
– 1 package of cream cheese (8oz)
– 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14oz)
-2 boxes of Nilla Wafers
-In a large bowl mix together pudding and milk. Set aside
-In another bowl beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. This is easiest in a stand mixer because it can take a little bit
-Mix the powdered sugar and vanilla into the whipping cream.
-In another bowl ix the softened cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until well blended.
-Fold in about 2/3 of the whipped cream mix into the cream cheese mix. Then fold that mixture into the pudding and blend together.
-Now you’re ready to fill your trifle bowl. When starting from the bottom of the bowl the layering should go like this: Nilla wafers, bananas, pudding mix, Nilla wafers, bananas, pudding, Nilla wafers, bananas, pudding, bananas, Nilla wafers, leftover whipped cream.
(I didn’t add any whipped cream to the top because no one in my family likes it)
