Banana Cream Pie Pudding
Author: April | Food n' Focus
Ingredients
  • 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups cold water (or 2% milk for a creamier version)
  • 1 small box (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 box of Nilla Wafers
  • 4 medium bananas
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, blend sweetened condensed milk and cold water (or milk) until combined. Add pudding mix and blend on medium speed about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight).
  2. After the pudding mixture has chilled and is very firm (at least 4 hours), beat cold whipping cream in the bowl of an electric mixer until the cream is fluffy and holds a stiff peak. Then, use a spatula to gently fold the pudding mixture into the whipped cream (add the pudding to the whipped cream in two batches). Fold/stir just until the pudding is combined. Fill (2/3 full) a large piping bag or a large zip closure bag with the whipped pudding, then snip off one corner of the bag.
  3. Pour about ½ of the box of Nilla wafers into a large bowl and break up each cookie in half or into a couple pieces.
  4. Slice bananas, reserving a ½ of a banana (in the peel) to slice and add just before serving.
  5. Begin assembly by adding a few broken cookies, a few slices of banana, and a layer of the pudding. Repeat with cookies, banana and pudding. Add a third layer if possible (depending on your dishes). Chill assembled desserts at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours. Shortly before serving, add a garnish of a few broken cookies and a slice of banana.
