Going Bananas

Today is one of those days that I feel as though I’m going bananas. So, instead of losing my mind {if I have one left to lose} I decided I’d eat bananas. Besides maybe they’ll give me some relief from these oh so lovely “charlie horses” that love to creep up in the middle of the night.

It’s a rather tasty and extremely simple little concoction:

1 large pkg instant vanilla pudding
2 C cold milk {pkg calls for 3C but use 2}
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 small tub of whipped topping
Nilla wafers {I like the “minis”– you get more per bite!}
bananas {I only needed 2 large}

Mix the milk, pudding, and vanilla in blender until smooth. Pour in large bowl and fold in 1/2 of whipped topping. Layer Nilla wafers and bananas in bottom of container and pour pudding over top. Layer Nilla wafers and bananas again and pour pudding over top. Top with whipped topping… chill and enjoy! Mmm!

    I love Banana pudding and am going to make this tonight! It sounds so yummy. Thanks for the recipe. I hope you can sleep better tonight. I am already having trouble getting comfortable and sleeping at 28 weeks, and I still have a few weeks to go. I will be a zomby by the time Noah gets here!

    Yummy!! What an easy fix for some ‘nana puddin’ when you’re in the mood. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll be tryin’ it!! Have you tried the Not Yo Mama’s Banana Puddin’ recipe that I sent you? Much more expensive to make since you use Pepperidge Farm Chessman cookies, but it’s soooo good!!!

    Not sure about the instant bit…and cool whip is never as good as real whipped cream

    Make your own pudding. It will be better, and you will KNOW what is in it. Whipped topping!!! You must be kidding. Don’t they have cows where you live? Whip up some heavy cream.
