Southern Banana Pudding with Flair

Cynthia Rivers Martinez


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.
  5. Chill for 45 minutes and then serve.
