southern banana pudding with flair

Recipe by

This is a take off of a Southern classic. I just didn't have any vanilla or banana pudding in the pantry so I came up with this. Then there is the "secret ingredient" that makes the difference. It is something us Southerners use that a lot of my Northern Foodie Buddy's have never heard of.

How To Make southern banana pudding with flair

  • 1
    Take the 3C of milk and blend with pudding mixes for a couple of minutes and set aside.
  • 2
    Put everything else in another bowl and blend together until smooth. About 5 minutes is good for this.
  • 3
    Take the pudding and place in bowl with other mixture and combine until well blended.
  • 4
    Now take your Vanilla wafers and cover the bottom of a 3Q glass dish. Layer it with bananas. Layer it with 1/2 of pudding mixture and repeat. I like ending up with Vanilla Wafers on top but it is up to you.

    Chill for 45 minutes and then serve.
