My maternal grandmother could cook anything, God rest her soul! Whether it was a homemade cake or God-awful chitterlings, she knew how to make every meal a memorable moment. Each visit to her house usually consisted of me and my nieces sneaking into the kitchen to find a Sunday afternoon treat. The icing on the cake was when we would discover a dish of Banana Pudding in the fridge! Jackpot!!!
Grandma made her Banana Pudding from scratch. Like the filling was cooked “on top of the stove”, as she would say. To this day, I cannot get her recipe right. However, in all of my attempts, I have discovered an easy and quick fix to needing that comfort dessert.
This recipe for Banana Pudding consists of 5 items: instant pudding mix, milk, Nilla Wafers, Cool Whip, and bananas. It is a recipe that you just can’t get wrong. Since my first attempt, I can proudly say that it has been added to my family’s holiday dinner menu!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Super girly mixing bowls.
Depending on the day, I will use either flavor of Jell-o Instant Pudding. (Vanilla or Banana)
If you really love banana flavor, try the banana Jell-o instead of the vanilla.
Stir, stir, stir! (or whisk, whisk, whisk!)
Aren’t these Nilla Wafer Minis the cutest things?!?
Honestly, you can even make a really small version on this recipe. I almost stopped at this point.
