Nanner Puddin'

I know.

I know.

I should be making something with nutmeg, or pumpkin, or apples. Nope, not me. Last night it was all about the Banana Puddin'. My friend Dana's birthday is tomorrow, and as an office treat, I made her Banana Pudding (her favorite)

Here's the Recipe:


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 bananas, sliced
1/2 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers


- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.

- Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch dish with vanilla wafers. Arrange sliced bananas evenly over wafers. Spread with pudding mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping. Chill.

Here's What I Got:

Delicious layers of wafers, bananas, puddin' mixture, and to top it off, strawberries!

Here's What I Learned:

- This recipe is FABULOUS.

- It's ok to eat some of the pudding out of the bowl when you are done.

- In fact, you may want to make a slop bucket of extras in your left over cool whip container and chow down. Like this...

Who loves banana pudding?
