Southern Banana Pudding

banana pudding1If your from the South, you probably already know how to make banana pudding.  But if your not, you should defiantly give this recipe a try.  Banana Pudding is the easiest dessert you can make and is very affordable. Banana Pudding has been at southern picnics and family reunions for as long as I can remember.

A delicious banana cream pudding with fresh bananas and cookies to crunch makes a light and yummy dessert. A True Southern Dessert. I grew up eating Banana Pudding and still love it today.  Hope you enjoy too!

Let’s Get Started:

1 Large Box of Instant Banana Cream Pudding Mix

1 Cup of Cool Whip or Homemade Whipped Cream

3 cups of Milk

1 Box of Vanilla Wafers

4-5 Fresh Bananas sliced

Tip: if you want to make homemade whipped cream:

Use 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream with 4 tablespoons of Powdered Sugar.  Beat with a hand mixer until soft peaks form that resemble whipped cream.  If not sweet enough, add a little more powdered sugar.


Whisk milk and pudding mix together and let chill in refrigerator until set.  A thick pudding will form.  Once pudding is finished, add the cool whip and thoroughly mix.  This cool whip makes the pudding light and fluffy.  Slice the bananas in thin slices and set aside.

You can use any kind of dish to layer the banana pudding.  Trifle dishes make the prettiest desserts. I use mason jars for entertaining. It’s a fun way to feed your guests.

Add a small amount of pudding in the bottom of the dish, next a few slices of banana and then some vanilla wafers crumbled.  Keep layering in this order until all ingredients are used.  Top with a dollop of cool whip and a few crumbled vanilla wafers.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
