Enjoy this easy to make and eat Banana Pudding

Posted on 06/29/22 by Patrick Cobb


What’s summer in South Carolina without a little banana pudding? This recipe is simple and you will make you go back for seconds.

Here is what you need:

1 can of Eagle Brand milk

1 ½ cup of cold water

1 small box of instant vanilla pudding

2 cups of whipping cream

Vanilla wafers

Bananas, of course!

Mix Eagle brand milk and water; slowly stir in pudding and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.

Cut the bananas while you are waiting.

Fold in the Cool Whip into the pudding mixture

Assemble the pudding – you can add the cut bananas to the pudding mixture and pour over the wafers, layer the wafers, or make a pretty design in your favorite glass dish.

If you have cool whip lovers, have an extra container on hand so they can add a scoop of whip on top of their pudding.
