I ran across this old recipe the other day. It was a pudding that I would fix for the kids when they were little. I can remember them helping me with this Creamy Banana Pudding when the vanilla wafers were almost as big as their little hands. I had not made this banana pudding in years. All it took was running across it in an old stack of recipes, and it was on the table for dessert that night.
The family loved it. This is a simple, easy, no fuss dessert, but you would have thought I had served them something from a 5-star restaurant. I thought this would be a great recipe to share with you. It can be made in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish or you can make cute little shot glass desserts. It’s an excellent dessert for cook-outs, covered dish dinners, or just a simple weeknight dinner surprise.

- 2 (3.4-oz.) boxes Instant vanilla pudding
- 1 c. milk

Add another layer of wafers and bananas and spread remaining pudding mixture over top. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Refrigerate until time to serve. Store in the refrigerator.
