Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding

I don’t know what it is about banana pudding that brings me so much comfort.  I could be upset or angry or just feeling down and for some reason, banana pudding is like a huge, much needed hug.  So it’s no surprise that I jump at the chance to make banana pudding, especially a recipe from Paula Deen.  LOVE her.  And anyone will LOVE this banana pudding.

Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding
(adapted from Paula Deen)

1 box Nilla wafers
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
3 cups milk
2 small boxes French Vanilla pudding mix
8 oz cream cheese package
1 can condensed milk
1 Cool Whip, thawed

Cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish pan with Nilla wafers then place sliced bananas over them and set aside.  In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix thoroughly.  In another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk and mix until smooth.  Fold the Cool Whip into the cream cheese/condensed milk mixture then add this mixture to the pudding.  Pour this final mixture on top of the bananas.  Top the mixture with the remaining Nilla wafers.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

ImageMy two cents:
I have made this banana pudding about four times already!  It’s THAT good, folks.  Initially, my boyfriend wasn’t really anticipating to taste this banana pudding, but once he did, he requested it soon after for Superbowl Sunday!  My family loves it, my co-workers love it, and I love it so this recipe is definitely a keeper.  The modifications on the Nilla wafers, milk and pudding mix came from this Pinterester’s blog — definitely made a difference!  What are you waiting for?!  Make it already!
