Banana Pudding

Last week we had dinner with Jenn and her husband. (You remember Jenn. She's the one that introduced me to Mirassou Pinot Noir.) Anyway, it was impromptu so I needed a quick dessert to throw together at the last minute. And apparently this is one of Jenn's favorite desserts of all time. It was a win-win scenario.

Sorry there's no picture. I forgot to take one.

3 c milk
2 pkgs instant vanilla pudding mix (4 svg size each)
3 bananas, sliced
1 box Nilla Wafers
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed

Pour milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Let stand at least 5 minutes.

While your pudding is setting, arrange wafers on bottom and up side of a 2-quart serving bowl, about 17-20 cookies. Put a layer of sliced bananas on top of the cookie layer. Then put a layer of pudding.

Repeat cookie/banana/pudding layer. Put a final layer of cookies on top then cover with Cool Whip.

Put in fridge until ready to serve. The recipes says at least 3 hours but I only did for about an hour and it was fine.

Yum! This is one of my dad's favorite desserts so I've had it often. I got 2 thumbs way up from Jenn as well!

And this was even better the next day!
