Layered Banana Pudding Recipe Like Grandma Made

"Banana pudding is one of our family favorites. It perfect for any time of the year. This layered banana pudding recipe is a crowd pleaser for sure. I love this recipe and I think you will too! Every time we have an event at church back in Dallas, everyone requests one of our sweet ladies, Ms. Linda, make her famous banana pudding recipe. There was a point in time when she auctioned off a recipe a month for an entire year at church. We won that and it was one of the best treats you could ever imagine. We picked a different recipe each month. Her banana pudding was at the top of the list!

Let me show you just how easy it is to make…. she did share the recipe with me. Here is everything you will need to make this classic recipe and it will serve 8 to 10 people, easy. This recipe does not include egg whites. I know some banana pudding recipes do, but this one does not. We made this up in individual cups, but you can layer it in a large dish for a traditional large gathering setting."

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • container of whipped topping
  • 1 (12-ounce) whipped topping
  • 1 box vanilla wafers (like Nilla Wafers)

  1. Beat milk and instant pudding until it is well mixed.

  2. Add sweetened condensed milk, Combine it well.

  3. Fold in about 12 ounces of Cool Whip.

  4. Note: Here is how you will layer it if you’re putting it all into one dish.

    You’re going to layer the ingredients starting with the pudding mixture to cover the bottom. Then, the vanilla wafers, and some banana slices. Repeat until you're out of ingredients.

  5. Note: If you don’t want to make individual banana pudding cups like we did, you can use a large baking dish and follow the same layering process.

  6. Garnish with cookie, banana slices and whipped cream on top of the pudding.

  7. Serve immediately or chill for later.
