Cold Banana Pudding

cold banana pudding
I love banana pudding!  I know this is a “summer dessert”, but I recently got sick and when I’m sick, I crave pudding.  So… here is a recipe for my mother-in-law’s “Cold Banana Pudding”.  It is different from traditional banana pudding because there are no eggs.  The only ingredients you’ll need are instant pudding mix, skim milk,  Eagle Brand milk, Cool Whip, bananas, and Nilla wafers!  You don’t need a stove or an oven!
My mother-in-law, Paula, is famous in our family for her Cold Banana Pudding.  She makes it every time we go to the lake house… I’d say it has become a lake house tradition!  I think in two days, our family cleaned this entire pan!   I love it cold…hence the name, “Cold” Banana Pudding.  Try it today and see what you think!
Paula and I use instant vanilla pudding, but you can use the instant banana flavored mix for that extra “banana” taste.  Enjoy!
Layer a 9 x 13 inch pan with Nilla wafers and sliced bananas.
Combine pudding mix with 2 1/2 cup cold skim milk.  Stir constantly for 2 minutes, or until pudding thickens.
Pour in sweetened condensed milk, then fold in cool whip.  Mix until smooth.
